Ignacio’s role was to provide detailed design of the three storey central RC structure and to provide the concept design of the 300m long x 200m wide x 30m high steel frame canopy roof. The structural analysis was carried out using finite element analysis to account for large deflections, temperature differentials and transfer structures. Ignacio also assisted the main contractor with site supervision of the detailing and installation steel bar reinforcement.

A £47 million theatre in Aylesbury, Buckinghamshire. The project comprised of new RC walls structure with steelwork to roof trusses, plant roof and composite floors.
