Rossi Long Consulting provided civil, structural and transport consultancy services for Scira’s new offices to manage and maintain their offshore wind turbine units located in the north sea. The buildings comprise a two storey office building using glulam roof beams with steel frame to provide a high quality space with economical and low impact structure. There is also a clear span warehouse for materials storage, incorporating a mezzanine light goods deck above the integral cold store and office spaces.
The scheme was required to achieve BREEAM rating of ‘Very Good’. Factors supporting this requirement included green roof finishes to the office, SUDS drainage systems including a complete on-site drainage system for foul and surface water and use of recycled material.
