Sample text

This ensures that no new foundations are constructed adjacent to those of the facade, therefore ruling out any constructional disturbance and subsequent harmful effects caused by the new structure’s loads. 11, is employed when the design of the new structure requires that some columns must be located immediately adjacent to the retained facade. In order to minimize disturbance at the base of the facade, the new column bases are constructed immediately adjacent to it, but do not undermine it. The new columns, which are also immediately adjacent to the facade, inevitably subject these bases to eccentric loading and an overturning effect, which must be counteracted in some way if the foundations are not to fail.

Differential settlement The designs of the facade-ties and the detailing at the junction of the new structure with the retained facade included no provision for differential settlement. 7). The sub-soil investigations concluded that the only likely settlement of the new building would be immediate settlement which would be complete before the in situ concrete casing was provided to the steel frame. It was this concrete casing around the front beams and columns that formed the interface between the new structure and existing facade and, because negligible settlement was expected after provision of the casing, no slip surface was provided.

Mild steel facade-tie bracket secured to projecting threaded end of stainless steel stud using nut and washer. Each mild steel facade-tie bracket was provided with two 21 mm diameter holes in its vertical leg through which the projecting resinanchored stud passed in order to secure it to the facade. 6). To allow for variations in the gap size between the mild steel brackets and the uneven facade, thin mild steel packing plates were used as required to fill the space between the vertical legs of the brackets and the inside face of the facade.
