New school for The National Autistic Society

One of the major projects we are currently working on as a new school for The National Autistic Society. It has been designed by our team for the Anderson Group and is a successful collaboration between Architects, Structural Engineers, Site Agents and ourselves. Based at the former Tottenham Hotspurs training ground at Chigwell, the new school is a purpose built educational centre for autistic children, and has a value of over £120,000 Bespoke design to accommodate the needs of autistic children Built next to the 60 plot residential development we also supplied with both floors and trusses as well as JJI floors. Unique design features used to overcome challenges whilst staying true to the original design. Truss design integrated to also form parapet walls. Glulam beams used to span trusses extremely long distances at shallow pitches. Structural loading to accommodate extremely heavy plant equipment The truss design layouts had to be incredibly comprehensive Design office manager for Robinson Manufacturing, Matt Korny, commented on his teams approach to the major project: This was a very large and complicated roof which required the designer to spend many weeks perfecting the detail and meeting the customers needs.  Dan performed this task tirelessly and deserves great credit for overcoming the many challenges that the project presented.
