Load bearing structural system for mixed use development

Location: Carmine Wharf, London
Client: Henley Homes PLC
Installer external envelope:Southern Maze
Structural engineer: Price & Myers
Architects: Stock Woolstencroft
Project value: £15 million
Size: 141 apartment units, 1630 sqm commercial space

EOS Load Bearing Structural System has been chosen as part of the Carmine Wharf development. EOS were selected due to the flexibility of the system which supports open plan design and offers load bearing certification to 9 floors.

Each aof the 131 apartments in the development has been built to the highest specification, with many benefiting from private balcony or terrace. Carmine Wharf further offers attractive communal courtyards providing a tranquil retreat from the City.

EOS's unique load bearing system combines a range of elements to support creative contemporary design, delivering high quality value engineering, and fast build times.

The principal building envelope was constructed using the EOS load bearing structural system. This comprises of the company's unique load bearing external panels which support light weight render systems and a range of tiling (in this case, terracotta). The infrastructure is supported by a podium transferred deck consisting of hot rolled steel and pre-cast concrete planks. Internal load bearings walls are formed from 100 section.

The EOS flooring system is constructed from 300 deep lattice joists with a screed on the top that is both Part E and Part B compliant, and is installed as an integrated element of the broader system. The system offers excellent acoustic and insulator properties, suited to apartment developments. The intermediate flooring system also supports cantilevered balconies, a feature of this contemporary design.

The single ply warm roof incorporates the Architectural pitch which has been designed into the roof trusses by the EOS team. The EOS system applies custom design to manufacture of light gauge steel frame, supporting contemporary design, practical and rapid provision of water tight build envelopes.

A principal focus in this, as well as many commercial developments, is reducing build time. The blocks, each of five and six stories and offering between 1250 and 2200 square metres of space, have been completed in as little as 9 weeks including the screeding to intermediate floors.
