The London Designer Outlet (LDO) is located in Wembley Park, close to Wembley stadium. The building caters for designer shopping, eating and drinking clientele. Sugar Dumplin is a new restaurant located within the LDO.
For the fit-out of the Sugar Dumplin a mezzanine floor was required. The Landlord building shell concept, embodied within the LDO, is to provide for mezzanine floor installation fitted out by prospective tenants into separate units utilising the existing frame as much as possible. The Levels 02 to 04 were built to allow for a Level 03 mezzanine floor to be installed where desired. It was intended that any future mezzanine floor framing system would be supported off steel plates located in main building reinforced concrete column elements during construction. However, the final configuration of the tenant mezzanine differed such that the column plates were only partially utilised.
CRE8 structures were appointed by the property management company on behalf of the building owners to review the adequacy of tenant structural proposals.
