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. The connections are detailed to meet the architect’s aesthetic criteria.
Calculations were provided for the roof movement connections and associated braced bays. Throughout, the need for the building to reflect the existing warehouses was considered as these characterise this section of the riverside.
