Case Study: 19 Storey Residential Building at Deansgate, Manchester, UK

No 1 Deansgate is the tallest residential building in the UK since the 1970s and is a 19 storey steel composite structure supported on inclined tubular columns at a podium level. The building consists of 14 upper floors of high quality apartments and 5 lower floors of commercial use. The facade is double skin glass, which allows for a thermal 'buffer zone' and retains the lightness of the design concept.

1. The Achievement

14 floors consisting of 84 apartments and 2 penthouses and 5 floors of commercial use.

Structure is based on 4,1 m × 6,8 m column spacing so that the composite floor slab spans 4,1 m.

Erection of 800 tonnes of steel in 30 weeks, or one floor every 2 weeks.

Super structure is supported on inclined tubular columns at podium level.

Storey-high steel ‘transfer’ structure supports upper floors.

Small diameter Circular Hollow Section columns along façades.

Structure designed for tight dimensional tolerances.

Excellent acoustic insulation was achieved by light steel supporting walls and composite slabs.

Double glass façade regulates internal temperature.

Structure designed by fire engineering to minimise fire protection.

The building was conceived in steel in order to maximise the speed of construction and light weight of the superstructure.

2. Steel Solution

The upper 14 floors, typically of 60 m × 17 m external plan, comprise a regular steel structure in which a 4,1 m span composite slab is supported by 6,8 m span composite beams using 103 mm UC sections that are perforated for ducts serving the internal kitchens and bathrooms. The 165 mm thick composite slab uses Ribdek 80 decking and has a 40 mm screed. A suspended ceiling, comprising two layers of 15 mm fire resisting plasterboard, enhances the inherent fire resistance of the UC sections to provide the required fire resistance and to economise on fire protection costs.

At 16 m above ground level, the upper residential block is supported by a storey-high steel transfer structure to reduce the wider grid of the retail area below to the sensible residential grid. This is achieved by deep trusses supported by inclined tubular legs, which were designed to be architecturally interesting. The trusses are fabricated from UC sections.

Construction Manager, MACE, and the steel fabricator developed an innovative temporary platform from which the floor beams could be erected rapidly, and safely. The platform was raised as the work progressed. Decking followed on the floors beneath and stabilised the structure. The UC sections were propped to reduce deflections.

The erection of the 800 tonne steel structure took an average of one floor every two weeks, including the complex transfer structure. The columns are UC sections located within the separating walls. The smallest possible circular hollow sections are used where the columns are exposed adjacent to the glazed façade.

The outer skin of glazing is suspended from the floor above and the structure was designed to tight tolerances and minimum movement.

Separating walls used double layer light steel sections with two layers of 15 mm fire resisting boards on each side with insulating quilt between to provide a high level of acoustic insulation. The mass of the floor and its fire protection achieved the required acoustic insulation for this high quality building.
