Acute Vascular Imaging Centre, John Radcliffe Hospital

A new Acute Vascular Imaging Centre (AVIC) has been constructed to serve John Radcliffe Hospital's new cardiology building, part of the Oxford facility's expansion programme. Our structural, civil and building services engineers worked with BAM Construction under a Department of Health ProCure21 framework agreement to design and deliver the imaging centre.

The AVIC site is located in a narrow gap between the cardiology unit and the Accident & Emergency department of the main hospital. Its three-storey concrete frame is structurally independent but linked to the structures on either side at first floor level, and bridges a road used for deliveries and fire access.

Adjacent to the main hospital, ground beams span existing pile caps and below-ground services. Columns o ...

Abbey Mill House

The Blade

Sensitivity is required on this project to build an eight storey residential building and a fourteen storey commercial high rise on an historic site which once housed a mill complex run by Benedictine monks.

Oxford Brookes University student centre

The new five-storey concrete frame student centre has created a focal point for Oxford Brookes University. It houses the university's main library, the student union and a lecture theatre, along with teaching rooms, retail areas and catering facilities.

The main entrance to the new building leads into a large atrium with the library and student union on each side and a ground floor dining area. The lecture theatre projects into the space, creating a mezzanine level above. Wings on three sides of the building accommodate retail and medical facilities, a link to the existing Abercrombie building and pooled teaching rooms.

The new student centre is light, open plan and easy to navigate. Its long span steel-frame roof helps create the sense of space and the large voids pr ...

Reading Station area redevelopment works

The six-phased redevelopment plan for Reading Station was a hugely ambitious scheme to decongest the busy rail hub. Of the two packages of work released by Network Rail, Ramboll won contracts on both.

Sonning residence

A two-storey contemporary private residence on a 4.9 hectare plot next to the River Thames near Reading. Our structural engineers worked with the client’s architect to achieve a building that maximises natural light using full-height glazing, and features immaculate interior and exterior finishes. The grounds include a helipad, a golf green, an outdoor swimming pool, a tennis court and a fish pond.

The new concrete frame house and private entrance courtyard occupy a greenfield portion of a site on which the previous dwelling was demolished. The building's slabs include integrated underfloor heating, and the roof is flat. The 4m wide balcony and large first floor terrace utilise a cantilevered concrete slab constructed using the Cobiax void former system of plastic spheres, which ...
