Structural Steelwork

The free standing portal frame is designed and manufactured in accordance with BS EN 1090 EXC2. Fabricated steelwork undergoes a four part process for long life corrosion protection. 1. Cold grit-blast SA2.5 2. Zinc coat. 3. Anti-corrosive primer. 4. Polyester powder coat high gloss finish system to RAL or BS4800 colour (non-metallic).

Building Services

ZONE™ internal space lighting is designed to provide consistent lux levels as specified by the relevant regulatory body for illuminance values and lighting distribution, using a series of LED luminaires suspended on structural elements. Emergency lighting, fire detection and fire alarm system is designed, installed and commissioned to the relevant industry standards and regulatory requirements. The heating and cooling requirement to provide year round temperatures and airflow suitable for the use class will be determined by the build specification and DTM thermal analysis. ZONE™ system design accommodates building service installations from air source climate control to IR heater units and mechanical

Civil Engineering

The concrete subfloor construction, with float finish over continuous vapour control membrane and insulation is specified to meet the requirements of DTM thermal analysis. Glazing wall plinth construction forms a retaining structure for the subfloor, compensating for changes in ground level. The masonry façade provides continuity with existing building fabric. Rainwater drainage discharges either to slot drainage or a series of gullies, with connection to existing piped stormwater from the structural RWP elements.

Flooring Finish

ZONE™ flooring will be specified at design stage either as an 11mm depth 1-3mm aggregate resin bound decorative stone or a choice of contract vinyl finishes over latex screed and liquid DPM.
