A striking building, home to the Tombola Headquarters in Sunderland. Three floors of flexible office space around a central atrium, within a conversation area, on the banks of the River Wear.
D4S designed all non-standard steelwork connections, CIDECT connections and the complex torsion and moments connections. To meet the aesthetic criterion none of these connections will be visible and will be concealed, all designed to Eurocode Standards.
Providing our professional consultancy services associated with the structural engineering, we produced calculations for the roof moment connections and associated braced bays. Throughout we considered the need for the building to reflect the existing warehouses which characterise this section of the riverside.
