    The former De Beers office building was remodeled to provide student accommodation. The works were carried out on a tight site. Our R.A.P.I.D approach allowed us to determine the ‘real’ load capacity of the building to carry out a two-storey extension to the roof. We called upon historic design codes to calculate sufficient capacity of structural elements and used light weight construction techniques for roof extension. The result – a significant number of rooms provided without strengthening the existing building.

    We enabled the client to realise additional value and return from this development by adding the two additional floors, thereby significantly increasing the usable floor area without the need to undertake significant strengthening of the existing structure.
