Design of a steel frame to single storey residential extension.

A very interesting design where our client wanted to have two sets of bifold doors meeting at a corner. The design was to have no corner post to give the illusion of the roof floating in the air once both sets of doors are open.

The solution was to provide a braced frame hidden within the gable end, which is in turn tied to a steel ground beam encased in concrete to form the foundation.
