This is an ongoing project for The Mead Group. Manderwood Timber Engineering was approached to engineer, design, and manufacture a floor system for  approximately one third of the building to create a first floor within the structure.

Using the Easi-Joist Metal Web floor system, this allowed for a simple yet very economic solution to create a floor of this size. The final engineered design was produced from Steel layout drawings and dimensions checked on site. However, to allow for dimensional differences, the Easi-Joists have been designed to allow trimming on site if needed. The advantages of the Easi-Joist floor system enabled this particular project to span between the steels  without the need for additional internal load-bearing  supports. This in turn required the fabrication of 235 joists  from our depot in Highbridge, Somerset.
