This building provides four storeys of office accommodation on the Pine Trees Estate in Staines with single level of basement for car parking.

Webb Yates Engineers provided Structural and Civil engineering design for the reinforced concrete frame and sustainable urban drainage system. Due to existing piled foundations in the ground at the site from the previous building, a raft foundation was proposed instead of a standard piled solution. Webb Yates worked closely with geotechnical specialists to carry out a raft settlement analysis to justify the design, simplifying construction and producing a cost saving of £200k.

The steel roof cantilevering over the main entrance atrium was carefully designed to control deflections and was built with a pre-camber to ensure the final position was in tolerance.
