The Paterson is part of the Manchester Cancer Research Centre. Destroyed by fire in 2017, the new 270,000 sq ft facility almost doubles the size of the original with over 113,000 sq ft of heavily serviced and engineering lab space.
To meet challenging programme demands, we introduced an alternative method of structural riser flooring installation, keeping MEP works on track. The team developed a 4D animation video showing how we’d install the riser floors, providing a safe and efficient installation template we can easily replicate on future projects.
We drew the floors using 3D BIM and pre-fabricated them off-site, increasing productivity, reducing waste and mitigating design issues around the location of MEP services.
