Complex steel structure for cinema in Southampton
It is destined to become a true attraction: the impressive new entertainment and shopping centre, including a cinema, in the southern English city of Southampton. It is an attractive and futuristic building in the busy business district of the city and it immediately catches the eye. The primary constructional elements of the cinema screens are the building-high trusses, consisting of both tubular parts and H sections bearing piles (for the elements that bear lighter loads). On behalf of Hollandia, Iv-Consult produced the detailed calculations and the workshop drawings for the complex and suggested adjustments to improve the structural behaviour of the building.
