Structural Engineering - Commercial

Below are some of the commercial projects that George Voyias has engineered.

Offices & Laboratories
The Generics Group, Harston

The sensitively designed scheme has 4000 square metres of floor space, a new junction for access onto the A10 road set in landscaped parkland, a reduced level car park, and a sustainable urban drainage system.

The new buildings have prefabricated steelwork frames and precast concrete floor slabs. One new module has piled foundations in Gault Clay, while the other four have conventional concrete pad foundations on chalk. The waveform roof has a structural steel decking infilled with concrete, which is integrated with a "chilled beam" system of air conditioning, heating and lighting. A column free space was achieved at first floor level by steel “bow string” trusses tensioned with stainless steel tie rods.


Clacton Leisure Centre, Clacton

The leisure centre was extended and altered in 2007 to include a new health spa, dance studio, spinning room with improved changing facilities.

This challenging project was designed and built under a very tight programme. The new two-storey spa building has a new spa including a bathing pool and a variety of wet rooms. It has a steel frame supporting composite concrete floor slabs and mass concrete pad bases with reinforced concrete tie beams against the original buildings.

The new dance room was created with the construction of a new mezzanine floor in an existing gym hall. The new floor has composite steel beams with concrete slabs to allow a large internal space below with just four internal columns near the perimeter. The floor slab was designed to limit the deflection and frequency of vibration for use a dance floor.
