The Lighthouse building in Great Yarmouth will be the focal point of the Greyfriars development. NHS Norfolk and Waveney commissioned us to provide engineering services for the design of a new office, and a multi-storey link building to connect with their existing properties of the Ship and Phoenix House.
The Lighthouse structure will link the various levels of the three buildings. This slim, tall round structure presented numerous challenges, not least overall stability. Using a 3-dimensional analysis program, the structure was analysed for the various load combinations including wind from various directions.
