Commercial engineering, by design

Commercial developments account for a smaller but still substantial proportion of PRO Structures’ work, and have historically included anything from individual modification works through to clients developing new business parks. Our experience in this sector also extends to a new Royal Bank of Canada regional HQ in Bridgetown, Barbados, which was located adjacent to the country’s listed Parliament building; new training facilities for the Gloucestershire FA, and a new 15-storey mixed used development in London’s Caledonian Road, where we are carrying out the structural glazing design.

In fact, much of our work in the field of structural glazing is connected with commercial developments, including the Somerset County Cricket Ground new pavilion, and glazed frontage for a Waitrose store in Bagshot.

  • Our work on the 15-storey Royal Wharf/Caledonian Road mixed use development in London for glazing specialist Ridgeway is progressing apace, and we are proud to be providing the structural design for the glazed facades. The curtain walling is being erected, as of winter 2017

New four-storey reinforced concrete flat slab frame with reinforced masonry cladding constructed adjacent to the country’s listed Parliament buildings. The foundations were piled using driven BSP piles through 20 metres of peat into the underlying coral bedrock. Ground vibration monitoring and control techniques were used to drive the piles.
