Steel Connections

To support the cantilevered pods the steel beams which lie parallel to the cantilever will need to be connected to the columns of the structure with moment connections, this will allow the force to be transferred back through the structure and the beams will effectively act as one solid beam tied back into the building. To allow for ease of disassembly they will be bolted moment connections.

Design Realisation - Plans and Section

Plans and Section

After exploring the design in 3D I have started working in 2D plan and section forms to rationalise and work out the structure and detailing of the building. The plans don't show up very well on the scribd website so if you want to see more detail in the drawings please download the pdf file and view it with a pdf reader.
