190 Bath Road, Slough This project comprises a family of three new concrete-framed office buildings of varying size and height on Bath Road in Slough. The design of the concrete frame was developed in partnership with the framework contractor from the onset of the project. This enabled every aspect of the design and construction to be tested prior to commencing site works. In order to speed up the construction of the slabs, a prefabricated reinforcement mat system was adopted. This was designed using a finite-element analysis package that also scheduled and detailed the mat reinforcement.

Nicholas Hare Finsbury Square, London
No 1 Finsbury Square is conceived with urban space in mind, resulting in a rhythm of columns at 4.5m centres. This rhythm is utilised to create a 15m x 4.5m clear floor plate; the 'cellular'steel beams then allow the use of integrated services and structure.
