Project Details
This impressive development in the heart of the Titanic Quarter is to become the Headquarters for Belfast Metropolitan Colleges.

This project consisted of 9,526m2 of underground basement car park and 11,523m2 of suspended ground floor slab with a mixture of single and double faced reinforced concrete walls around the basement perimeter.

The building consisted of 6 No lift shaft cores. For the construction of these KHC used ‘Peri CBC’ climbing formwork. All the lift shafts were constructed simultaneously. Using the ‘Peri CBC’ climbing formwork dramatically increased productivity on the shafts and allowed work to continue uninterrupted in the basement.

Due to the large footprint of the 475mm thick ground floor slab, ‘Peri Skydeck’ was the preferred system of construction providing fast erection and striking times vital to meet the ground floor slab and basement walls 8 week timescale. In order to achieve this, 4,500m2 of Skydeck equipment was required to maintain continuity of work and to achieve concrete pours of approximately 1,200m2 requiring 500m3 of concrete per pour. These pours were all carried out at night time to ensure uninterrupted concrete supply.

The project quantities consisted of 1,500 tonnes of reinforcement, 8,900m3 of concrete, 21,049m2 of power floated slabs, 6,718m2 of retaining walls, lift shafts and shear walls and 1,740 holding down bolts for the steel frame structure above the basement.
