We were appointed by Highlands and Island Enterprise (HIE) to carry out all civil and structural engineering design for office units at Sandbank Business Park, just outside Dunoon. The site brought challenges with rock at ground level over a fair extent of the building footprint. With careful ground modelling and foundation anchors, we were able to reduce the rock excavation and provide the most economic solution. The building has a steel frame structure, which was modelled in-house including the connections design. Our clients are pleased with the end result and look forward to welcoming their first tenants.
