Arup is a world class firm of designers, planners, engineers, architects, consultants and technical specialists.
Jonathan Macauley and Conall Doherty of Design ID will present an overview of their conservation and restoration work at the Grade 1 listed, 18th Century, No.6 Grafton Street in Mayfair, in its conversion from a derelict office building to a high-class entertainment venue.
Discussion will include the assessment and repair of the Victorian era timber roof using traditional timber jointing techniques, the extensive analysis of the 200 year-old trussed-girder timber floor beams to modern codified loads (adopting state-of-the-art dynamic testing techniques), and the appraisal of the original stone cantilever grand staircase.
A laser point-cloud survey was used to develop a fully coordinated BIM model which not only enabled close coordination between disciplines, but also provided a detailed record of the asset, aiding discussions with Historic England and enabling highly accurate specification of repairs.
