Unite the Union, Bradford

Unite the Union, Bradford

Our client required a fully encapsulated, cantilevered rubble chute during a complete refit of the Unite the Union building in Bradford, as a result we were asked to carry out a feasibility study as to whether the requirements of the design could be met. Due to our capabilities, and the software that we use we were able to model the structure using our finite element analysis program, this allowed us to identify the structure as a whole, and take action to any members that where heavily stressed by the applied loads.

Once the concept design had approval, we drafted the design for use during the construction of the scaffold identifying all critical members, loads and associated risks, along with providing the supporting calculations.
