The 'Kamppi Centre' is situated in the very centre of Helsinki and includes an underground bus terminal, a freight office, an underground station, a shopping centre as well as offices and apartments.
The building consists of 7 storeys, 3 parking storeys under ground, two storeys of shop units and two storeys of offices.
In the centre of Beirut, we helped our clients achieve planning permission for a multi-storey office development with a deep basement that provides several levels of parking space. Our concept design was taken forward as part of a Design & Build contract involving local engineers.We focused on solutions that work hard without adding complexity. The building's concrete frame helps to moderate the internal environment as part of an integrated services strategy. A large central atrium maximises daylight penetration into the office spaces. The resulting heat gain is counteracted by air conditioning in all occupied areas, including the atrium's ground floor level and walkways.An elegant bespoke roof adds visual drama to the conventional structure.

The masterplan for the site in Norwich between Barrack Street and the River Wensum includes 20,500 sq m of office space, 200 houses, a hotel, 1,500 sq m of retail space, restaurants and cafés as well as a footbridge, amenities and landscaping. The building at 3 St James Court is one of three office projects developed by Ramboll in the first phase of implementation, offering 3,354 sq m over two floors.Extensive investigations on adjacent ground indicated a strong likelihood of archaeological remains on the brownfield site, most recently occupied by a printworks. Our structural and geotechnical engineers liaised at length with the Norfolk county archaeologist to agree a strategy to limit ground disruption during construction.The printworks’ thick concrete floor has be ...

Back in 2007 we worked on the complete refurbishment of this six storey 1930s Art Deco building in central London. In 2008 we returned, working on the refit of the third and fourth floors for Sony BMG. An atrium, cafeteria, performance space and 152,000 sq ft of offices have been constructed over the two floors, using exposed concrete, rustic timber and glass to create an old-meets-new feel.The large voids have been made in the concrete/clay hollow-pot floor slabs, creating both a sense of space and more connectivity between floors. Performances on the lower level can be viewed from the 13m lightweight steel bridge that spans one void. The bridge's floor is made from timber sleepers and its balustrades steel and glass.A stone staircase, with glass balustrades and op ...

In November 2009, Ericsson’s Dublin staff occupied four leased buildings at two locations. With leases due for renewal in June 2010, the client wished to refurbish two of the properties to accommodate all employees in one area and surrender the remaining ones.Ramboll's services engineers were asked to identify the most appropriate buildings for refurbishment as well assessing existing and future services provision. The new services design was implemented at Ericsson's headquarters — a 1960s precast concrete structure and at the more modern Boole House, built in the 1980s. Original drawings and existing information for both buildings was incomplete, making assessment of the services more challenging. Existing services for the HQ ran underneath egg-crate flooring, mak ...
We provided structural and geotechnical services for major demolition and rebuilding work behind retained façades on this corner commercial site. The ground and basement levels of the five storey brick building house retail, and levels one to four offices.
Ramboll UK helped update this tired office building, which had been left unlet for several years. Work involved modifying the existing atrium and replacing its glazed roof, and adding several storeys above the terraced west wing. Crucially, we devised solutions to substantially increase floor space with the minimum of structural intervention.The existing steel frame structure was rectangular in plan, with an irregular atrium — roughly circular in plan — in the centre. The first six stories housed offices, with plant located on the seventh and eighth floors and in a service drum that rose three storeys above the building.Infilling half the atrium served to extend floor space at each storey. The new, diminished atrium was then reconfigured to conform to a more pleasin ...
