Engenium was engaged as Lead Consultant, Structural and Civil Engineer and Architect, for YHI’s new distribution warehouse in Hornby.
The building was designed to be efficient and easy to construct, whilst achieving a high-quality appearance and durable structure. The building incorporates a 10.5m stud warehouse with post-tensioned slab for heavy racking loads.
The structural systems were designed to almost completely eliminate the requirements for temporary propping during construction which saved cranage time and cost and reduced the construction timeframe.
Engenium prepared steel and precast shop drawings during the design phase for immediate fabrication by the contractor.
