Client: Manchester City Football Club
BHC Ltd. worked alongside BAM Construction as the structural steel contractor for the development of Manchester City Football Club’s new training facilities.
The project involved the development of an approximately 310,000 sq m brownfield site in East Manchester into the new City Football Academy. The scheme comprised the construction of three buildings and 17 football pitches.
The Facilities Maintenance Building is a 2 storey steel framed structure sitting on reinforced concrete pad footings. The ground floor is of ground bearing concrete slab. Level 01 is a composite metal deck floor. Stability has been achieved by a mix of ridged frame action and steel bracing around the perimeter facade and within the roof plane.
BHC were responsible for the design and detailing of all structural-steelwork-to-structural-steelwork connections. Additionally, this includes any requirement to evaluate, design and detail for temporary loading conditions during construction.
