Proposal for Deichman LibraryOslo, NorwayThe Oslo Public Library, formally known as theDeichman Library is the municipal public libraryserving Oslo and is the country's first and largestlibrary. Centrally located in Oslo, Bjørvika is close tothe country’s most important public transportationintersection Oslo Central Station and the region’scommercial centre.The master plan stipulates that Bjørvika is to bedeveloped with seven public areas. These will beattractive public spaces, reserved for pedestrians,that will connect the existing rearward-situated townwith the Fjord, crosswise from the new developmentareas. Inside, the library mimics the activities unfoldingoutside; strolls, circulation, squares blended withrelaxation, contemplation and recreation.The atrium incised in the middle of the buildingmirrors the zigzag pattern of the main entrance. Fromfloor to floor the zigzag incisions shift and are notplaced symmetrically one above the other. This leavesan interesting uneven pattern when you look up/down through the building. The integrated designapproach on the project combines the architecture andengineering to provide a sustainable design solution forthe project.Key Project InformationClientArchitectHav Eiendom ASSnøhettaServices provided by Buro HappoldMechanical and electrical installations, structuralengineering, facade engineering, fire engineering,sustainability11

Library of BirminghamBirmingham, UKThe Birmingham Library project replaces the existingCentral Library with a new state-of-the-art centre forknowledge, learning and culture fit for the 21st century,which is to be integrated with the existing RepertoryTheatre. This symbolises the city’s mission of creating a‘global city with a local heart’ and is vital in developingBirmingham’s knowledge based economy and globalsuccess as a Science City.The existing Library is the busiest public library in Britainand the city’s most visited public building. The buildingfabric of the early 1970s building requires majorrenovation work and the layout is no longer suitablefor modern day usage. The current library also housesarchives, photography and rare printed collectionsof national and international significance in storagefacilities lacking proper climate control; all issues thenew complex will rectify.Birmingham City Council’s aim is to set new standardsfor libraries in the 21st century by creating anoutstanding resource for learning, information andculture. To achieve this, the new library and the REPTheatre will join together to share a number of facilitiesincluding a new 300 seat auditorium, meeting andconference rooms, plus cafe and restaurant facilities.CABE (Commission for Architecture and the BuiltEnvironment) has been consulted during the design.The project working method has relied on the constantdevelopment of 3D models and views. This hasallowed us to quickly explain the visual impact of thebuilding. Environmental issues have been explainedthrough an illustrated BREEAM compliance matrix thatdemonstrates how an ‘Excellent’ rating will be achieved.Key Project InformationClientArchitectBirmingham City CouncilMecanooServices provided by Buro HappoldMechanical & electrical installations,structural engineering, ground engineering, facadeengineering, fire engineering, lighting consultancy,security consultancy, building physics, sustainability,BREEAM assessor, security consultant,access consultant, acoustics, traffic and transportImagesPerspective Section ©MecanooLibrary ©Mecanoo23

Nørreport StationCopenhagen, DenmarkThe client commissioned our Buiding Physicsteam to set up a CFD model of Nørreport subwaystation, and adjacent tunnelling, in order to supportremediation, which is being installed to reduceNOx levels in the system, through analysis andsimulations. A redevelopment of the train station andthe proposed use of new generation trains created anuncertainty about the levels of NO, NO2 and NOx. Theenvironmental authority set a basic level that shouldcomply within the boundaries of the undergroundstation and Building Physics used analysis andsimulations to test that the levels and dispersion ofthe gases complied with these regulations.Nørreport station is essentially made up of two pairsof tracks, running north-south, with walls separatingthe two pairs almost everywhere. Copenhagenis to the south, and Osterport to the north. Thetwo tracks on the east side carry the traffic thatmoves northwards and which is powered by diesellocomotives. The two tracks on the west side carryelectrically powered southward-moving traffic. It isthe diesel locomotives that produce the contaminants.The two halves communicate with each other viaa gap at the north end of the station, a pedestriansubway, and a ticket hall with associated stairs. Theoverall length of the system (station plus tunnelling) isabout 1400m.Key Project InformationClientDesignerRamboll, DenmarkCopenhagen MetroServices provided by Buro Happold• Simulations of the train station microclimate carriedout using computational fluid dynamics (CFX5.4.1)• Geometrical information (using site survey ofstairwells, ventilation, gaps between the stations,etc.) used to generate 3D model of the station• Analysis of train contaminant data to set up trainmovement and emission rates• Simulation procedures of steady state (to gainbackground velocity and pressure fields) andtransient state (to simulate the entire train journeywith recordings taken at regular intervals)3D mesh model31


Gardermoen Terminal 2Oslo, NorwayThe competition for a major expansion at Oslo’sGardermoen Airport has recently been won by NSW.Buro Happold has been appointed as part of theengineering team. The new ‘T2’ will include a terminalextension, a new pier and extensive remodelling ofboth airside and landside infrastructure.Buro Happold’s role on the project includes energyand sustainability engineering, as well as operationalplanning support. One of the key goals for the projectis to cut energy demand by 50% against the existingterminal - which is already among the most energyefficient in the world.Working to the ‘lean’ ‘mean’ ‘green’ environmentaldesign principle, Buro Happold advised on theperformance of the building envelope and helped tooptimise the building form for passive solar design andmaximum daylight penetration.Another key concept is that of the ‘dynamic buildingenvelope’ to respond to changing external conditionsboth throughout the day and across the year. Lowcarbon technologies such as snow cooling and tappinginto the natural thermal energy from an aquifer werealso key elements of the sustainability strategy.Key Project InformationClientArchitectOslo Gardermoen AirportNSWServices provided by Buro HappoldBuilding physics, sustainability32Image©NSW

Haramain High Speed RailSaudi ArabiaStretching between Mecca and Medinah via Jeddahand King Abdullah Economic City, the brand new460km long Haramain High Speed Rail project is abold step towards a truly connected Kingdom ofSaudi Arabia. Our team have designed the four mainstations, combining efficiency and aestethics intolandmarks for the cities they are serving.This revolutionary transport system will radicallychange the way Saudi Arabians interact with theircountry, uniting the two most important religiouscities in the region. Producing the cornerstone ofthis transformatory network on an incredibly tightprogramme created a significant challenge for our team.The key to delivering such a phenomenally complexdesign in such a short period of time was thecreation of a flexible modular design. A core teamwere co-located with the architect to develop theconcept design and modular details, which were thendisseminated to our regional teams to incorporateinto the design. The scale of the stations is difficultto imagine - each of the platforms is over a quarterof a mile long. This modular approach has allowedour team to deliver these tremendous stations on alean schedule, whilst allowing flexibility in everythingfrom the spatial organisation to the incorporation oftraditional motifs.Challenging the brief to produce more efficientbuildings is something we are proud to do. A keydevelopment in this project was the creation of amodel that provides a natural ventilation solution tocooling the station platforms. Imagine no need for airconditioning in a desert country: the energy savingsare incredible. To compliment this system, our teamsalso optimised the number of roof lights to allowthe stations to be naturally lit for as long as possiblewithout any overheating and carefully consideredways to reduce energy and water use throughout allfour stations, to create buildings for the now and forthe future.Key Project InformationClientArchitectSaudi Railways OrganisationFoster + PartnersServices provided by Buro HappoldStructural engineering, infrastructure and civilengineering, geotechnical engineering, mechanical &electrical installations, bridge engineering, acoustics,transport planning, access consultancy, sustainability,IT & communications, waste management,people movement, building physicsImages©Foster + Partners37

The office space marks a change inapproach to Lundbeck’s organisation of the variousdepartments involved in the launch and marketing ofLundbeck’s new products and so the functionality andworking environment are of paramount importance.RH and Buro Happold proposed a relatively simple openplan building which made good use of the existingconcrete frame to create new space. At the heart of thedesign is the low-energy principle of natural ventilationwhich is made possible by the use of an atrium as aventilation chimney which draws air across the deepfloor plans from the windows on the facade.Structurally, the challenge has been to re-analyse theexisting building to prove that changes can be madewithout any problems and to integrate the meetingboxes which cantilever from the edge of the existingslabs, out into the new atrium.Key Project InformationClientArchitectH.

Wexford Council OfficesWexford, IrelandThe building, designed by NORD and Buro Happold, featuresa single facility with six pavilion buildings linked by a sharedinternal street and four sheltered courtyards surrounded by adouble façade. Our engineering approach was incorporatedinto the building structure and façade design. The buildingform and orientation optimises energy efficiency, with a doublefaçade tempering incoming air. The outer layer glass panels filterunwanted solar energy, while the windows in the inner wallmaximise air infiltration and exfiltration. The cavity between thefaçade incorporates a cleaning walkway.Each of the department blocks minimise heating loads throughinsulation, with further reduction through the glass rainscreen surrounding the building – a buffer space and thermalwrapper in winter. Furthermore, it captures solar energy, raisingits temperature 5 to 10°C above the external temperature,reducing heat loss and pre-heating incoming air.

As well as a striking – and RIBAaward-winning – architectural statement in its ownright, the university provides outstanding facilities forstudents while exceeding Danish energy targets. Thiswas the first collaboration between Buro Happold and3XN architects and we have since worked with themon several other major projects.3XN’s vision was for an extremely open and transparentbuilding that encourages interaction between studentsand teachers, with extensive use of glass walls andcantilevered sections. The brief also included theneed to beat local regulatory standards on energyconsumption by 30%.Ensuring safety in the event of a fire was anothermajor task, particularly with such a large, open plandesign featuring numerous atria spaces. One of thekey challenges for our facades team was to design theglass walls so that they remained visually stunningwithout affecting internal temperatures.Much of our work focused on maintaining the openplan design whilst minimising the need to installphysical fire resisting construction. Buro Happold’sunrivalled knowledge of international standardsmeant that we were able to deliver a solution thatwas a first for Demark. A bespoke high pressure watermist system was installed throughout the buildingto rapidly extinguish a fire. An extensive programmeof computer modelling and tests at the Danish FireInstitute were undertaken to demonstrate howthis exciting solution could work for the client, thearchitect and the authorities.The cleverly designed façade also provides just enoughshading to reduce solar gain while maximising theamount of daylight entering the building.The light, airy feeling throughout the Universitycreated by the open spaces and use of glass resultsin a vibrant, stimulating environment for study,while contributing to the outstanding sustainabilitycredentials. The Alsion campus sets the benchmarkfor sustainable higher education buildings not just inDenmark, but across the globe.Key Project InformationClientArchitectSyddansk University3XNServices provided by Buro HappoldMechanical & electrical installations,structural engineer, fire engineer, facade consultant,acoustic consultant, building physicsImagesThe new campus ©Adam MonkWaterfront elevation ©Adam MonkLarge, open interior spaces ©Adam Monk53


School of InformaticsUniversity of Edinburgh, UKA major landmark building, the Informatics Forum is aworld class centre for information technology researchand innovation at the University of Edinburgh. Builtover six floors around a glass atrium, the 12,000m2complex has an open design to encourage interactionbetween researchers.The Potterrow design team developed a high quality,exemplar building on this key site in the masterplan ofthis inner-city campus. Sustainability and minimisingenergy usage were key tasks for the building’s designteam, reflecting the university’s environmental policy.This aspect is founded on long life, flexibleaccommodation that can be easily adapted to futurechanges and needs. The building uses exposedthermal mass, combined heat and power, andwaste water strategies. It was also the first project inScotland to embark on BREEAM assessment throughconstruction, achieving an Excellent rating.Room depths were kept to a minimum to maximisedaylight penetration and a central atrium bringsnatural light into the heart of the building.This project was voted 'Best Building in Scotland 2008'(RIAS Andrew Doolan Award) and cited by the citycouncil as a benchmark for modern designKey Project InformationClient University of EdinburghArchitect Bennetts Associates/Reaich and HallServices provided by Buro HappoldMechanical & electrical installations, BREEAM assessor,structural engineering, fire engineering,building physics, lightingImagesEntrance elevation ©Alan McAteerAtrium ©Alan McAteerRoof terrace ©Alan McAteer54

City of Westminster CollegeLondon, UKReplacing the old City of Westminster College, thisRIBA award-winning building represents some ofour proudest work in the education sector. Fourseparate campuses were brought together to provideoutstanding facilities, spacious environments andcutting-edge technologies within a single holisticallydesigned, sustainable building.Creating flexible and future-centric spaces to inspirestudents throughout their learning was the keyconcept for the new City of Westminster Collegebuilding. The stunning architectural form demandedchallenging thinking to support the end result of abeautiful, enriching new college that serves both thestudents and the public.Schmidt Hammer Lassen’s vision of a simple geometricform around a dynamic, spiralling central atriumcreated one of our key challenges for the project. Thestepped design of the building’s shell and sweepinglines of the interior required a collaborative, coordinatedand multi-disciplinary relationship betweenour many services and the architects to "find theoptimum balance between economics, structures andphysics that achieved a beautifully high quality finish".Speech intelligibility and control of distractingbackground noise is vital for the good communicationof knowledge in educational buildings. Theinterconnectivity that is inherent in the design requiredan innovative solution from our acoustic engineers.The atrium at the heart of the building could easilyoverwhelm the surrounding libraries and classroomsso our experts crafted specific local solutions for eachenvironment, creating exceptional aural experiences.City of Westminster College is perfectly designedto serve the public and students with innovative,inspiring and sustainable spaces to interact, learnand grow.Key Project InformationClient City of Westminster CollegeArchitect Schmidt Hammer LassenServices provided by Buro HappoldMechanical & electrical installations,structural engineering, acoustic engineering,asset management, fire engineering,facade engineering, sustainability,disability design consultancy, building physicsImages©Adam Mørk57


Hazelwood SchoolGlasgow, UKThe project was an unique opportunity to create aninnovative design, as there is no equivalent school inEurope. Located in the Dumbreck area of Glasgow,Hazelwood provides a sympathetic, high quality,enriching and inclusive learning environment forchildren with severe sensory impairments. Our teamimplemented an environmental design strategy thatallows the pupils to comfortably make use of theirclassroom facilities without the interruption of externalnoise or solar glare, and achieves a low energy solution.Natural ventilation provides fresh air and cooling via asystem of opening vents integrated into the structureThe structural form needed to be modular to allow aneconomical design, whilst accommodating the ultimatelayout for the users. Our solution was a series of glulamtimber frames that radiate out from the setting-outpoints, with timber rafters between supporting theceilings and roof, with windows enabling natural daylightto shine through. We worked with the architects todevelop internal streets with areas specifically designed toprovide sensory and tactile cues to help children identifytheir environment. Hazelwood School has won numerousawards including a Scottish Design Award for ‘Best PublicBuilding’; as well as being Highly Commended for a ‘WorldEducation Building of the Year’ at the WAN Awards.Key Project InformationClientArchitectGlasgow City CouncilGM+AD Architects58Services provided by Buro HappoldMechanical & electrical installations, structuralengineering, access consultant, lightingImage©Buro Happold/Alan McAteer


BURO HAPPOLDHEALTHCAREhealthORIGIN Old English hælth, of Germanic origin; related to WHOLEModern healthcare buildings are inherently complex and need to satisfy a wide range of criteria– which puts Buro Happold, as an innovative consultancy with a holistic, inclusive approach, in anideal position to provide engineering design in this sector.All healthcare buildings, from hospitals to hospices,mental health units to primary care centres, must befast and economical to build and have a low carbonfootprint; they must be both future-proof and bugproof;and they must promote recovery while meetingstrict requirements for energy saving, operationalefficiency and inclusive access.With such integrated needs, integrated thinking isvital and this is at the forefront of our methods. Ourreputation for excellent creative design combines withpragmatism and good communication at all levels –be it between our teams or with our clients, architectsand contractors. This approach enables us to meet thespecialised needs of the healthcare sector, providinghigh quality, appealing buildings which meet theneeds of both today and tomorrow.We have extensive experience in creating optimalenvironments for staff and patients alike, which areproven to aid recovery and boost morale. We designin high levels of natural daylight and ventilation,enhancing these with further low energy solutionssuch as external shading systems, integrated buildingservices and passive climate control. With ergonomicopen spaces, we ensure buildings are a pleasure to workin, while helping to shorten patients’ length of stay.maximising hygiene through a keen attention todesign detail, from the segregation of high and lowrisk infection areas to clinical waste managementsystems.Our expert security and fire teams, meanwhile, makeour clients’ spend go further by reducing risk andmaking best use of the security options available, frompeople flow modelling to CCTV and access control.Green design infuses every aspect of our thinking, andour sustainability consultants work alongside our coreteams and with clients to meet the required carbonreduction targets. Specialist 3D and thermal modellingcan, for example, inform our structural and buildingservices teams when selecting the best low carbonstrategies.From the beginning we seek to identify the areas wherewe can minimise risk and reduce future costs, designingin flexibility from the outset. We are proud to workwith our clients into the future too – offering postoccupancyevaluation (POE) to ensure the building’soptimum performance – adding value not just throughdesign and construction but into the future.60Acoustic design and infection control are two vitalelements when it comes to good healthcare design.The creation of a peaceful recovery space in a busy,often noisy environment is something we specialise in,using state of the art modelling techniques to assessand improve the acoustic environment. Similarlywe take a risk-based approach to infection control,

Evelina Children’s HospitalLondon, UKBriefed to design ‘a hospital that doesn’t feel like ahospital’, Evelina Children’s Hospital provides a brightand spacious environment that is designed fun andexciting for children – who, more than any otherpatient, might feel fearful about their stay – whilealso delivering a functional, fully operational hospital.Evelina won the hearts of the public to poll amongthe shortlisted buildings for the RIBA Stirling Prize.Central to the new building is a vast open atrium,designed to create a warm, bright and cheerfulatmosphere for the children, which forms the maincommunal area. It is overlooked by every ward inthe hospital, with healthy natural daylight findingits way to every bed through the expanse of glass.This extensive daylighting also offers an additionalbenefit by saving on lighting costs. The atrium is keyin Evelina’s mission to create an open and welcomingenvironment for its vulnerable young patients.As Evelina’s defining feature, the extensive atriumpresented the structural team with fascinatingchallenges. In order to design such a large open space,with no beams and a huge glass roof, our engineershad to be truly creative. With such complicatedgeometry, we had to be in no doubt that our designwould hold up in terms of structural tolerance,buildability and the effects of any movement of thebuilding itself.To further protect the hospital’s patients, our fireengineers developed a package of passive and activemeasures to save lives in case of fire. While the openspaces created the best environment for the children,fire and smoke could spread rapidly, and the expanseof glass, if it shattered, could pose a serious dangerto life. Our team of specialists designed-in a smokesealedfaçade and toughened glass in the atrium, aswell as life-saving sprinklers. The fire strategy wasfurther strengthened by the provision of a speciallydesigned entrance for fire engines at ground level.Throughout the scheme’s development, BuroHappold worked closely with the architect, contractorand building services team to create a cheerfulenvironment promoting care and recovery for someof our youngest and most vulnerable patients – whilegenerating the innovative structural solutions ourclient both needed and deserved. Evelina won theIStructE Award for Best Healthcare Building in 2007.“The technical facilities, normally associatedwith fear, are made pleasant and inviting, anddaylight reaches every hospital bed.

St Olav’s HospitalTrondheim, NorwayThe Phase 2 development at St Olav's Hospital consistsof four independent blocks, integrated within theSt Olavs campus in Trondheim. The concept designfor the superstructure consists of a concrete frame,with precast modular slabs, exposed to maximise thebenefits of the thermal mass.The environmental concept design adopts the useof natural ventilation in ward blocks and extensivenatural daylighting, coupled with the thermal mass ofthe structure to deliver a low energy design. Energyis sourced from the CHP network and is linked also todistrict heating scheme and river water cooling facility.The building simulation included analysis using thetechniques of dynamic thermal modelling (DTM)and daylighting analysis in order to assess theperformance of the proposed design. The objectiveof the study was to predict likely summertimetemperatures in single bed ward rooms for bothnaturally ventilated and mechanically ventilatedscenarios. More specifically, the modelling has beenused to investigate the effects of facade orientation,exposed thermal mass, window size and glazing type.Key Project InformationClientArchitectSt Olav's Hospital GroupNarud Stokke Wiig (NSW)Services provided by Buro HappoldStructural engineering, mechanical & electricalinstallations, civil engineering, building physicsImagesCourtyard ©NSW ArchitectsFacade ©NSW Architects65

O₂ ArenaLondon, UKDesigned to be the most technically and acousticallyadvanced concert and sporting arena in Europe, its23,000 capacity also makes it equal biggest, while1.7 million ticket sales in 2010 have seen it becomethe most popular arena in the world. The O 2Arenasits within the former Millennium Dome – alsodesigned by Buro Happold – and is part of the broaderentertainment complex called The O 2Versatility of the arena is a key part of its success. Inaddition to hosting concerts in end-stage and in-theroundcentral stage formats, it can also host a rangeof sports modes, including tennis, basketball, boxing,polo and, thanks to the integrated ice-pad in the floor,ice hockey and various ‘on ice’ shows. Use of manyremovable and retractable seating units enables quickand regular adjustment to the arena’s configurationwhile complete removal of large parts of thelower bowl creates sufficient space for gymnasticscompetitions, which will include the 2012 Olympics. Inconcert mode, our operational design allows for rapidturnaround between shows, great flexibility of riggingfor lighting and provision for eight articulated lorriesto enter the event floor simultaneously.The construction programme saw creation of abuilding-within-a-building, which was analogousto making a ship in a bottle. The 50m height limit,created by the existing fabric of the Dome, excludedthe use of cranes and so the arena’s 4,500 tonneroof, complete with specialist acoustic cladding,was assembled on trestles at ground level and thenlifted, by jacking, into place. The cladding helpedmeet one of the client’s key demands; for exceptionalacoustic performance not only in terms of soundentering or leaving the building but also the internalreverberation time so as to reduce echo.The O 2had many other implications for our designteam. These included considering the microclimatearound the Arena (taking into account movementof fresh air, temperature and condensation levels,simulating a safe level of smoke flow and fire egressstrategies), accessibility for all users and taking inservices, such as rainwater collected for reuse, fromoutside The O 2.Overcoming these challenges was a triumph for usand has led to success for the client too. It received abuilding that has proved itself commercially and interms of the audience experience – and has rapidlybecome one of the world’s most famous venues forlive entertainment.Key Project InformationClientArchitectAnshutz Entertainment GroupPopulousServices provided by Buro HappoldStructural engineering, civil engineering, geotechnicaland geo-environmental, facades, fire engineering,building physicsImages©Buro Happold/Adam Wilson71

HAPPOLDFIRE ENGINEERINGFire engineering is a vital aspect of all building design processes. Using expert knowledge of theresponse of people and buildings to fire, our fire engineering team facilitate architectural visionand address client needs, such as business continuity and property protection.Buro Happold develops integrated fire strategiesfor a wide variety of construction sectors, usingresearch, analysis and design flair, combined withcomprehensive code knowledge, to produce tailormadefire safety solutions suited to each project’sunique needs. We have a proven track record ofdesigning strategies that meet building regulationswhile not detracting from the building’s aestheticsor functionality.Basing our designs on sound fire engineeringprinciples, we create innovative solutions that helpto bring the architectural ‘vision’ to life and add valueto the project – substantial cost savings can be madeby reducing unnecessary fire protection, smokeventing or escape capacity. We have also pioneeredthe concept of ‘opposed airflow’ for smoke control.This requires smaller extractors and so frees up morespace for development.Computational Fluid Dynamics is used to modelthe internal spaces and assess the behaviour offire and smoke using different scenarios, as well aspredicting crowd evacuation patterns. This analysisenables us to develop means of escape via thenearest exit, including alternative routes for disabledpeople. We also consider heat build-up and the fireresistance qualities of the building structure andother materials.Fire engineering at Buro Happold has developedsignificantly since Happold Fire Engineering wasfounded. We now have fire engineers located acrossthe UK, with additional capabilities in New York andthe Middle East. A combination of internationalexperience and local knowledge enables ourengineers to respond quickly to project demandsand to fully understand the complexities of workingin local markets with the latest industry innovations.86


HAPPOLDFACADESThe building envelope is a critical area of a building’s design, with the facade engineer playinga vital role in bringing the architect’s vision to life. New cladding materials and processingtechniques are continually being developed in the search for better facade performance, makingthe design and procurement of the building envelope a highly technical and complex process –yet one that is still immensely creative.Buro Happold advises clients on the best way todevelop, design and procure the building envelope,using our knowledge of the full supply chain toprovide high level technical advice across the wholedesign process, including the choice of materials andsystems. Our aim is to achieve a cost-effective, viabledesign solution that provides top performance at thelowest possible risk.The facade makes a major contribution to thesustainability of a building, influencing both energyefficiency and the quality of the internal climate. Itis also an integral part of the building’s aesthetic,complementing the structural form and definingits visual impact on the urban environment. BuroHappold uses a rigorous methodology to resolve theinter-connected issues involved in efficient facadedesign and detailing.Our facade engineers work closely with othermembers of the project team to bring the benefitsof high-level technical knowledge to the designof the envelope. With sustainability now a keyregulatory requirement, we carefully analyse theenvironmental ‘behaviour’ of different facadedesigns using advanced techniques such as thermalmodelling, wind analysis, acoustic design, solar andglare studies.This rigorous assessment enables us to design afacade that is appropriate for both the building andthe locale. Combining our practical knowledge ofnatural ventilation, shading and daylighting systemswith environmental factors such as solar gain, windflow and weather proofing we are able to deliverwell built, high performance facades that providesuperb occupant comfort with much reduced energyand running costs.88


On Nykredit Bank HQ, the whole building is wrappedwith a glass façade to provide a crystal appearanceand high levels of daylight. The facade is a double skinsystem with an unconventionally wide cavity, whichacts as a buffer zone to the external elements.89

We have developed numerical software tools that enable us to forecastpotential problems at the early stages of the design process, making complex ideas easier andmore readily understood.As architectural design becomes increasingly morechallenging and complex in nature, Buro Happold iscontinually developing new technology to enableus to deliver original, innovative and efficient designsolutions.We are a leader in the fields of lightweight, long spanstructures with non-linear behaviour and complexforms. We have analysed and designed many suchstructures, including the Millennium Dome and theBritish Museum. Our expertise includes high-techstructures and materials, including tensile cablenets and trusses, gridshells, air inflated structures,lightweight concrete, intricate steelwork, structuralglazing and tensioned fabric membranes.Our sophisticated modelling tools & softwareincludes:SMART Form: our in-house digital prototypingsoftware which has been developed to createoptimal solutions for complex curved geometriesincluding gridshells, fabric domes and facades.Tensyl: an in-house software development thatenables us to determine the most effective form forfabric, cablenet, pneumatic and non-linear structuralsystems.SMART Sizer: an innovative tool to optimisestructural shapes, grids and member sizes.We are also collaborating with the Universities ofCambridge, Bath, UCL and Salford on several relatedresearch areas.90

HAPPOLDMECHANICAL & ELECTRICALOur innovative design solutions embrace the latest technologies to improve a building’s performanceand sustainability. Integrated building services systems create a balanced and controllable internalenvironment; natural ventilation, heating and lighting systems are combined with active systems,such as air conditioning, to provide a high level of comfort and operational efficiency.To achieve the most appropriate solution we adopta holistic approach, considering all aspects of thedesign process from ‘abstract’ issues such as occupantwellbeing to the detailed analysis of mechanicalcomponents and the impact of environmentalregulations on the building’s form and energy usage.Using sound building physics principles and advancedmodelling techniques to analyse the envelope andspatial layout, our systems are integrated into thebuilding fabric to create functional internal spacesand balanced, controllable conditions.With buildings responsible for over 40% of all energyconsumption, sustainable design is now top of theregulatory and corporate agenda. Buro Happold hassignificant expertise in the design of environmentallyresponsible buildings. Our approach is to ‘design out’active systems wherever possible in favour of passiveinternal control methods such as natural ventilation,external shading and thermal mass.Working as part of a team we are able to balance ourclient’s aspirations with engineering (and budgetary)constraints to design high performance, low-energybuilding systems.Future flexibility for any changes of use is somethingthat always needs to be considered both in terms ofthe engineering systems and commercial viability. Toadd value to a project we can carry out a whole lifecosting of the systems and utilities to assess ongoingand initial costs of maintenance, repair, servicing andoperation, as well as social and environmental costs.This process can help the design team and the clientchoose between alternative designs, systems andstrategies and so achieve cost control and certaintyright from the start.Building services systems set the parameters for theoperational efficiency of a building and the ‘quality’ ofits internal environment92
