The Ball House, built over three storeys, is a hybrid structure using reinforced concrete, structural steel framing and loadbearing timber elements. The reinforced concrete retaining walls suppport the main steel frame of the superstructure. The frame is braced discreetly whilst providing large open areas and incorporating significant glazing to the external elevations.
The building is clad in a mixture of timber boarding and stone panels. We worked closely with the Architect and specialist cladding manufacturers in the design of the fixings and cladding support steelwork.
