Blenheim Rd, Christchurch

This new build three-story office building utilises 5 steel EBF frames for seismic bracing. Floors were Comflor 80 with secondary beams optimised to achieve an un-propped construction.

The EBF’s were designed with a floor opening to allow access to the ‘Link’ area for inspection and replacement after a seismic event. Tight architectural limitations and timeframes added to the design complexity. Screw piles were used to provide high uplift resistance for EBF frame elements.
