Atlantic Quay is a modern four-storey office building in the Pacific Quay area of Glasgow.
The steelwork frame was constructed directly from foundation level to suit programming requirements. The structural form comprises a vertically braced steel frame with composite concrete floor slabs supporting the office levels and plant rooftop. The main challenges of the site included the position of several buried constraints including tie rods, thurst blocks and quay walls. This was overcome by detailed pre-planning.
The project was erected utilising the main contractor’s tower crane, our in-house steel erection squads, metal decking squads and mobile elevated working platforms. Erection was augmented with our mobile crane in the first phase to progress in the most efficient fashion.
