The International Quarter (TIQ)
Client:Lend Lease and London Continental Railways
Architect:Rogers Stirk Harbour + Partners
Structural Engineer:Arup Ramboll
The first phase of Lend Lease’s major development in Stratford. The project consists of 2 residential blocks of 17 and 30 storeys. RC frame construction starting with large foundation pads above piles.
A central core on each tower achieved using jumpform systems typically 3 floors ahead of slabs. This system produced a good finish on the walls requiring only minimal re-work to allow for direct painting within stair cores. Floor slabs typically 550 – 600 m2 each incorporating pre-cast balconies at the perimeter.
The balconies included a cast in thermal break and connection bars. This allowed the balconies to be installed prior to the concrete pour for the slabs. Average 6 day cycle achieved for floor slabs. 2 sets of screens used on each tower; the first used to encapsulate the concrete works at the top as the structure progressed; the second used for cladding works on completed structure below.
13:17 - 14:17
This presentation provides an overview of the key specification and design considerations necessary to achieve good looking surfaces on concrete structures, whether cast in situ or precast offsite.
12:30 - 13:30
This e-learning course will cover the relevant sections of the code for the design of concrete framed buildings. Online and split into ten modules, delegates will have 12 weeks to complete the course via an online poral.
