1 Construction and Structures2 SRT 251 Major Project Warehouse and Office Complex Scenario Louis Kahn Christopher Holder

2 Louis Kahn - Research Louis Kahn used predominantly geometric forms, particularly in the openings. Brick and concrete are the main materials in which Kahn worked. Many of his buildings, particularly his most famous are of a large scale and contain an element of Monumentality Roofs appear flat and even hidden.

3 Proposed Site Construction and Structures 2 SRT 251 Major Project Warehouse and Office Complex Scenario Christopher Holder

4 Design Technology Specifications and Capabilities -Roof beam pitch 7 degrees 7 minutes (i.e. 1 in 8) -Span Clear span capabilities are available up to 40m approx. - Bay width 6.0m is a recommended economic spacing of frames. - Eaves height 3.0 to 13.0 approx - Fire Resistance of 1-4 hours -Cladding is variable from block work to metal sheeting Concast – The G-Frame is a precast concrete structural frame which works similarly to a Steel Portal Frame structure. Longitudinal support is be gained through the use of steel purlins or gurts.

5 All information found at Concast G-frame Benefits -Larger span capabilities, allowing increased design flexibility. -Competitive pricing -Hygiene - ledges where dust and dirt collects can be minimised, which is ideal for high precision industries (such as pharmaceutical, computer or food processing facilities). -Inbuilt fire ratings avoid additional board or sprayed protection. -Factory production, quality checks prior to arriving on site. -Speed of erection. -Decreased maintenance costs – the frame is virtually maintenance free. -Clean finish. -Overhead gantry cranes – supports for overhead gantries can be provided in columns if requested at design stage.
