Week 4 saw members of Pearson&Partners meeting with specialist engineers from Buro Happold at their main London office. We were very thankful for Edward, Clara, and Kenichi for providing valuable advice on fire strategy, structural design, and building services. The group managed to finalise the design of the refurbished museum as well as the visitor centre and educational annex.
Haziq made great progress on services within the building, making sure the user-experience was optimal. This linked in well with Tamara’s work on visitor flow and Aparna’s careful fire strategy.
Nathan finalised the structural checks for the new museum terraces and the bunker structure, while Manuel focused on the new roof structure. Filippo followed his intense efforts on AutoCAD to model the new structure and the model looks amazing!
Jack investigated the feasibility of BREEAM ‘Excellence’ standards. He also provided detailed costing linking in with Will’s financial risk analysis and planning framework studies.
The team is preparing well for the report and poster submissions in the coming week, to communicate the new design of the Imperial War Museum: the IWM London designed by Pearson&Partners!
