Waldeck shares in Olympic vision

Waldeck has been appointed to work on a £3 million project to create an Elite Athletes’ Performance Centre and a four-storey student accommodation block at Loughborough College.

Loughborough Training Camp

In October the college launched its plans for the exciting new £1 million performance centre for top sportsmen and women aged between 16 and 18 – an age group often overlooked by other sporting programmes in the UK.

The college’s existing Gables halls of residence site will be transformed into the state-of-the-art facility which will provide purpose-built accommodation as well as access to top-quality sports coaching and pastoral care for talented youngsters.

The Gables, a local landmark, has housed some of the 16-18 National Volleyball Academy squad.

Halls of residence
Waldeck, which has eight offices throughout the east of England and South Yorkshire, including one on Clarendon Street in Nottingham, is also undertaking the civil and structural engineering work for a brand new halls of residence in place of an existing accommodation block on Forest Road.

The new building will consist of 46 one-bedroom apartments and has been designed with future flexibility in mind. The college will have the option of removing the internal walls should it be subject to change of use.

Work is due to start on both projects in September 2011. The Elite Athletes’ Performance Centre is scheduled for completion by March 2012 while the halls of residence will be finished in the Spring 2012.

2012 Olympics
The Japanese 2012 team – one of the biggest competing in the London Olympics – has chosen Loughborough as its training base and their pre-games camp athletes will be based at Loughborough University. It is likely that some Japanese competitors may use the also use the College’s facilities.

Associate Director Dan Wright said: “The new Elite Athletes’ Performance Centre will strengthen the town’s already impressive sporting credentials and will play an important role in the London 2012 Olympics.

“Waldeck has been involved with a number of projects within the education sector recently ranging from small refurbishments through to major new-build facilities and we are keen to gain more work in this field.”

Hilton Hotel, T5, Heathrow, London

Buchan Concrete Solutions was awarded a contract to design, manufacture and erect a precast form for the new seven-storey Hilton hotel at Terminal 5, Heathrow.

Waldeck worked with Buchan Concrete Solutions, internal design team and was responsible for the structural engineering design and detailing for all of the precast elements of the development.

The Waldeck project team produced over 1,000 general arrangement and reinforced concrete detailed drawings.

In total there were 236 external wall panels, 432 internal panels and 761 floor panels as well as stair flights and landings

“This was a particularly challenging and complex job as the design was very intricate and there was a huge amount of detailing required.”

Another UK first for Waldeck.

Blackfriars, London

Waldeck was appointed to work on a multi-million pound project to restore Blackfriars railway bridge in London in 2010.

The bridge is a key component of the £5.5bn Thameslink programme designed to double capacity on one of Europe’s busiest stretches of railway – the core route through central London – benefiting tens of thousands of passengers daily. The bridge will effectively house a brand new station which will be built by 2012 and will be the first London station to span the Thames.

Waldeck’s specialist team of engineers has been appointed to detail precast concrete slabs and crosswall units designed by Network Rail, which will make up the station’s platforms.

The first phase of the work which comprised the straight sections of platforms 1 and 2 is now complete. This involved detailing 60 crosswall units and 120 platform slabs which average about 1.7m x 4.m on plan. The team is now working on phase two comprising further detailing of the curved ends of platforms 1 and 2. Work on platforms 3 and 4 will get underway later this year.
