ASME Engineering were appointed to undertake refurbishment and extension works of an existing building to the North of Oxford Streets busy shopping area.

Approx. 130T of steelwork was provided to the Basement, Ground and Storeys 1-5 involving the creation of new reception space, infilling of a large light well, reconfiguration of lift and WC cores and new facade steelwork to support new stone cladding.

The project also included the extension of an existing roof to create two additional floors. This structure was comprised of bespoke pre-cambered Ultra Shallow Floor Beams creating an economical flat-slab flooring system. The largest beam installed for the new roof was 8 meters long and 2.2 tonnes in weight. The temporary stability of this steel frame was an important factor during erection and until the main lateral stability system had been installed.

Other works carried out on the project included the new architectural staircase to the front entrance, parapet balconies, roof access staircase, roof enclosure and new plant room steelwork.
