Orange Building, MediaCityUK

Project Description

The Orange building is an eye-catching commercial development within the first phase of the prestigious MediaCityUK development by Peel Media.

The 13-storey concrete framed building utilized post tensioned flat slab construction over 9m to 14m spans to offer flexible floor space for mixed use and to minimise the floor-to-floor heights.  The inclusion of 5m cantilevers on each upper floor level provide unobstructed views over the piazza and dock beyond but required detailed time-deflection analyses to ensure that differential displacements were within the tight tolerances required for the curtain wall installation.

The building was designed to suit a slip-form construction method where the cores were constructed in advance of the slabs.  3D Revit modelling was used throughout the structural design and detailing.
