Adult Day-Care Centre, Bangor
This new day-care facility was designed to replace Bayview House with facilities for elderly and physically disabled people, as well as those who suffering from mental ill health.
The building is steel-framed and supports a pitched standing seam roof deck with areas of timber joisted flat roof supporting a Sedum ‘grass’ roof. The building is partially single and double storey. The external envelope contains both cavity construction as well as areas of ‘Stow’ render. The ground conditions were reasonable at depth with trench fill required to suitable bearing and a suspended ground floor slab. Through value engineering with the contractor the ground was vibro-compacted resulting in no trench-fill concrete and a ground bearing slab.
The foul and storm drainage specific to the new building, parking areas and play areas is collected by a series of separate drainage sewers and manholes. The foul drainage will then discharge by gravity to existing drains. Due to the extreme drainage problems in sections of the greater Bangor area, the storm water created on the site had to be attenuated for discharge at a reduced rate.View More Projects
