Timber Frame Design
This development was a design and build project with Port of Leith Housing Association, the project comprised of a new build six storey building on a brownfield gap site. Due to sit topography a full basement is present adjacent to Coburg Street reducing ground level access towards the Water of Leith.
The structure comprises a steel frame transfer structure to form car parking with timber frame superstructure above clad in brick / block and zinc to suit the aesthetic. Foundations are piled. The site was highly complex due to the presence of existing structure on the boundaries which required to be incorporated into the permanent works. Amenity decks were provided above the carpark.
