Pinewood Structures have delivered many apartment schemes over the years and have gained considerable experience in these sometimes-complex buildings.

Apartment buildings can be more technically demanding due to their shape, size and number of storeys. The largest block undertaken by Pinewood Structures is 6 storeys with ground level being a concrete Podium with a car park below with the timber frame above. A building with this many stories must be engineered to account for disproportionate collapse. This is normally achieved by using a solid ring beam around the external face of the building in the floor decks which maintains the integrity of the structure. 

Also, these buildings may also use some steel construction to which the timber frame has to tie in. Balconies can also be tied back into the timber frame.
Pinewood Structures have many years of expertise in designing and engineering multi storey apartment buildings, and can provide technical advice and assistance for your scheme.
