Connection Wednesdays on March 6th will be dedicated to a multi-column base plate of a roof pergola designed by ARUP on top of a new modern building in the heart of modern London.
10 Fenchurch Avenue is a new mixed-use office development located in the heart of London’s insurance district. Designed by Eric Parry Architects, the development comprises a seventeen storey building that incorporates a rooftop garden; a unique, open-air area for the public and tenants alike that offers panoramic views of London from within the Square Mile, and across the City to the Tower of London and beyond.
This project is London’s first publicly accessible roof garden in the ‘true sense’, towering 65 meters above street level. ARUP has provided structural engineering, geotechnical engineering and security services for the new development and acted as a contract administrator for the demolition of the six buildings that previously occupied the site.
Among other parts of the structure, ARUP used IDEA StatiCa for the design of the galvanized steel pergola base plates, which will be presented in this webinar.
