During the London 2012 Games, the Basketball Arena will host Basketball, WheelchairBasketball, Wheelchair Rugby and the final stages of the Handball competition.As the venue will host some of the most popular Paralympic sports it is expectedthat a high proportion of the spectators will be wheelchair users. The back-of-houseneeds to be easily accessed by Paralympians using sports chairs which are significantlydifferent to standard wheelchairs. A key challenge of the project for Buro Happoldwas to design a temporary venue that meets the highest standards of accessibility tomeet both front-of-house and back-of-house demands whilst also fulfilling the ODA’scommitments to Inclusive Design and its duties under Equalities Legislation.Disciplines involvedInclusive Design

The Olympic Stadium will have a capacity of 80,000 during the Games: 25,000 inits permanent lower tier and a lightweight steel and concrete upper tier holding afurther 55,000. The upper tier can be dismantled after the Games.The solution built is a genuinely compact, low-energy stadium. It’s a functionalyet elegant response to a range of complex needs. The roof is supportedindependently from the terrace seating, allowing easier dismantling at a futuredate. The MEP design is flexible so that temporary cooling and power can beprovided for events.

The project consisted of two buildings, one an 11 storey high quality office buildingrequiring large areas of open plan office with car parking in the basement, the othera servicing building. Buro Happold proposed a novel tube-in-tube composite columnsolution, to minimise the size of the columns, to allow additional workstations to beaccommodated on each floor.Efficient use of the structure allowed more of the construction budget to be spent onitems such as the façade and finishes which are more visible and valued by the client.Buro Happold’s collaboration with the design team and understanding of the client’sneeds and priorities resulted in efficient use of material, designed for future flexibilitywith cost certainty at the early project stages.Disciplines involvedCivil Infrastructure • Façades • Ground Engineering • Structures

Significant construction works are ongoing at Tottenham Court Road undergroundstation to upgrade the station and construct the new Crossrail tunnels.Buro Happold’s client for this project was threatened with a compulsory purchaseorder from London Underground for part of this valuable central London site inorder to allow the Tottenham Court Road construction works to take place.By designing 7 mega piles that will be incorporated into the station boxes towithstand the load of the building above, Buro Happold were able to develop aninnovative technical and contractual solution that provided a win-win situation forour client and for LU.Disciplines involvedGround Engineering • Structures
LONDON DENMARK PLACEClient: Consolidated Developments LimitedThe piles were installed up to 1.1m from runningtunnels. This is the closest that LU have everapproved and required extensive site monitoringand night works for the most critical periods.
The aim of the project was to investigate the feasibility of storing large quantitiesof heat for long periods to meet a significant proportion of UK winter heating loadfrom heat stored during the summer. The vision was to store and recover heat morecost effectively from constant running base-load electricity generation than frompart time peak shaving generation plants such as municipal boilers.Using waste heat from power stations will improve the effective efficiency from35-40% to potentially as high as 80% depending on the location and local demand.This study could help with the progression towards a step change in heat provisionin certain areas helping to reduce the countries reliance on gas heating.Disciplines involvedGeographic Information Systems • Ground Engineering • Sustainable Technologies • NB.

The masterplan for Folkestone Seafront comprises approximately 1000 residentialunits together with watersports and marine activity centres, located along MarineParade and within the former ferry terminal.The seafront was, at the beginning of the 20th Century, a lively tourist centre witha range of attractions including a pier. By the end of the century, most of theattractions had gone, replaced by the commercial ferry terminal. This, in turn,ceased to be commercially viable in competition with the Channel Tunnel andexpansion in Dover, leaving the seafront as an under utilised resource for the town.Disciplines involvedCivil Infrastructure • Environment • Ground Engineering • Sustainable Technologies • Transport • Water
