New Contemporary Office Structure – Port of Felixstowe


J P Chick and Partners were appointed to undertake the Civil and Structural design of this new contemporary office structure in the heart of the Port of Felixstowe.

The site was very confined and the office was attached to the existing premises, making the detailing of the building of particular import. The 3 storey office has large panoramic views of the port area through its curved external walls and made use of external balcony viewing areas, which maximised the use of the site area available. The building required a complex steel frame, utilising curved steelwork and exposed circular columns to provide the desired aesthetic and required a piled foundation due to the prevailing ground conditions.

The completed building is an impressive structure which stands out in the industrial setting. J P Chick and Partners were proud to work alongside Robert Allerton Architects and Brooks and Wood Contractors on this prestigious project.
