Steel framed cantilever structure creates an entrance lobby for Southampton station, Hampshire.
The requirement of this project was to create a light and airy entrance space integral to the existing building at Southampton train station. An added challenge of the structure was to ensure it did not take any structural support from the building it was joined to.
The solution was an elegant curved roof building with a cantilevered structure at its heart. A row of steel stanchions at the front of the canopy support a tapered trellis steel frame putting no structural load on the existing building. As a striking design feature the stanchions extend through and above the roof as decorative steel masts.
At Fordingbridge we not only find a practical solution to fit your requirement, we take pride in creating an aesthetically pleasing and robust structure too.
