Nursing home, Limerick, IR

One storey of timberframe and trussed rafter roof were designing by WaVe Structural Design to sit on traditional ground floor build. The building area of 2100m2 was designed with emphasis on fire resistance separation in the kit and roof. The full building was designed and erected in three months from design start, as tight deadlines where required by the client. The roof includes duopitch and curved trusses, special valley sets, long span flat roofs, special girder trusses to allow for fire separation and lift shaft extended up into roof space.
