Bradwell Annexe Frames Seismic Strengthening

Structural substantiation of existing buildings and design of strengthening measures

This project included finite element modelling and structural analysis and assessment to determine the seismic withstand of the concrete annexe frames located on the East and West of each Reactor building (formally operating rooms).

To meet the requirements of the site safety case, we were subsequently commissioned to design and detail seismic strengthening to increase the withstand of the structures in preparation for long term care and maintenance.

The various deliverables included the basis of design, calculations, design justification reports, general arrangements and details of the proposed solution.
