Lisburn Bus Station
Taylor & Boyd LLP provided full Structural and Civil Engineering Services for this new build of a curved steel framed bus terminal on a busy city centre site.
The structure comprised single and double storey steel framed and portalised structures on piled foundations, whilst the external bus yard was concrete slab construction laid to varying gradients and falls to suit the constraints of the site boundaries and levels. The ground floor construction was of pre-stressed, precast concrete units whilst at first floor level composite flooring construction was used.
The architectural design of the external fabric of the building has resulted in a number of differing finishes which all required structural support and resulted in various details and interesting features around the perimeter of the building. The city centre location of the site led to a number of challenges including the realignment of the existing carriageway and traffic control measures around the site. Computer models were used to simulate bus and traffic flows around and within the site for planning purposes.View More Projects
