New Offices Public Building, Lowestoft

Lowestoft Joint Venture project (Riverside Offices) comprises a three storey office building housing Suffolk County Council and Waveney District Council.

We were responsible for the civil, structural and environmental design for the project.

This brownfield site required extensive remediation prior to construction.

Our design comprised a steel frame with precast concrete Thermodeck flooring supported on a series of reinforced concrete ground beams, pile caps and piles.

The surface water drainage system was designed to retain a 1:30 year rainfall event on site temporarily, as Lake Lothing is tide locked, twice a day at high tide.

The completed structure was highly commended by the judges in the RICS Awards 2016 – commercial category.
