Ballynameen Bridge Repairs

OCT, 17, 2018

Refurbishment works at the Ballynameen Bridge Project are nearing completion. The existing bridge structure partially collapsed dramatically during the August 2017 floods. Design ID proposed the Macrete FlexiArch System, clad in the same natural stone recovered from the collapsed structure to replicate the existing aesthetic. We hope overall the finished product will stand for at least another 120 years, and provide the same heritage aesthetics which the locals have enjoyed for their lifetimes.

Fleet Services M3 Southbound now open!

SEP, 10, 2018

This week saw the official opening of the brand new Fleet Motorway Services on the M3 Southbound from London.

The old services building was completely destroyed by a fire in December 2016. Since then it has been a quick turnaround to get the services back up and running. Design ID have worked collaboratively with JWA Architects, Galliford Try and clients Welcome Break to deliver a state of the art motorway services station.

Design ID have been the structural and civil engineers on this new development, designing a steel framed structure partly supported by internal and external timber columns.

The timber columns, arranged in random clusters are the standout aesthetic and structural design feature that showcase the new services. The slender timber columns imitating trees, aim to create an open environment with a natural appearance.

The new development has completely transformed the services in Fleet, making it one of the most contemporary motorway services in the UK today.

Ballynameen Bridge

AUG, 31 , 2018

This photo shows the beginning of our work to refurbish Ballynameen Bridge, which partially collapsed dramatically during the August 2017 floods. Part of the value we brought to the project was in saving 3 of the stone arch bridge spans, including two piers which required underpinning. The replacement spans are to be made of precast FlexiArch construction, clad in the same natural stone recovered from the collapsed structure. We hope overall the finished product will stand for at least another 120 years, and provide the same heritage aesthetics which the locals have enjoyed for their lifetimes.
