Canary Wharf: Conversion of Retail Unit into Nursery with Suspended Upper Floor

in Property Refurbishment

KMASS were instructed by a Developer to prepare the structural design for a two storey nursery located within the main multi-storey office building.

The client required a large open plan play area to the lower level with offices and meeting rooms located on the upper floor.

KMASS prepared a design which involved suspending the upper floor from the underside of the multi storey office building, thus ensuring that the lower floor was completely free of columns, providing one uniterrupted play area.
