Construction is well underway on a development project designed to integrate community and public services in Suffolk.
The Mildenhall Hub brings together a new school, a new leisure centre, swimming pool, an NHS health centre, a new library and other public services including a Job Centre, Citizen’s Advice Bureau as well as space for Suffolk Police, West Suffolk Council and Suffolk County Council.
We are providing steel connections design services to Nationwide Structures Ltd, the steel frame design and installation specialists appointed to the project by the main contractor R G Carter.
Gyoury Self is responsible for the simple and moment connections, as well as the baseplate design.
The latest engineering design and analysis software – including Tekla Structures, Autodesk Revit and MasterSeries – is being employed and managed within the BIM environment. IDEAStatiCa software is being used for the design and code-check of the more challenging connection designs.
Potential challenges can arise when contractors are working together on a complex technical project from different locations. This has not been an issue as Gyoury Self has extensive experience of working remotely in collaboration with project partners on large scale projects, and the company has the necessary design technology and project management systems in place to minimise and swiftly address any potential problems.
