ByrneLooby has completed a wide range of medium to large scale building projects including new builds, refurbishments and extensions. As experts, we can advise on the best designs to optimise construction economics, constructability and program. To complement our leading structural design teams, we also offer a range of specialist services including geotechnical support, drainage and pavement design, façade retention and railway consent advice.
Refurbishment projects require our structural engineers to demonstrate their expertise in previous building materials and forms of construction, surveying and testing, problem solving, and complex analysis and design. We work with our clients and their architects to rejuvenate and extend existing buildings, fulfilling commercial needs and creating new real estate value. We have designed additional residential floors such as 41 Peartree Street in London, refurbished retail space at Highcross shopping centre in Leicester, and breathed new life into country homes such as Barrington Hall in Hatfield Broad Oak, Essex.
Design & Build
ByrneLooby has particular experience working with contractors on Design & Build projects. We work collaboratively to determine the key success criteria for every project and we develop solutions that complement each contractor’s particular expertise and preferred methodologies. Recent D&B projects include high end townhouses at Hamilton Drive (London) for Careys and the Waterside Drive sports complex (London) for Willmott Dixon. Our group company Sinclair Johnston & Partners are currently completing the new private patients unit at St Bartholomew's Hospital in London for Kier.
We have specialist design capability to provide expert solutions for complex structures. The partially complete and future tallest building in the City of London at 22 Bishopsgate (formerly The Pinnacle) required a deep transfer structure to allow the building core to be slip-formed to level 22 while the building foundations were simultaneously installed beneath. The Proton Beam Facility at University College London Hospital demanded a specialist basement retention solution to facilitate the 24m deep excavation on a tight urban site. ByrneLooby have the integrated design capability for these types of exceptional projects.
