Established in 1959, Farrat has an enviable depth of knowledge and experience in delivering technical solutions to technical challenges. This webinar will showcase a range of projects and topics, including:
The Factory, a state of the art acoustically isolated façade to create a 13,350m2, world class cultural venue in Manchester
Urban living over rail, including a 30-storey tower, a hotel and a steel-frame office building
Optimisation of the thermal performance in steel structures
An industry update on Farrat’s PhD in thermal performance prediction of point connections
Falcon, Farrat’s new patented solution for creating up to 4m long concrete cantilevered structures
Learn how to overcome complex challenges in acoustic, thermal and vibration isolation in ambitious structures and façades
Discover how to optimise structures through specialist engineering design
Find out about the effects of isolation trenches, isolated columns and box-in-box rooms
Hear about lightweight construction and steel frame OSDs
Gain an understanding of UK standards for construction material performance
Get the latest developments in UK Building Safety regulations
Explore the current requirements for specifying safety in critical building products
This webinar can be of interest to all structural engineers, and it might be particularly beneficial to steel fabricators, developers, architects, acoustic consultants and façade designers
With a keen focus on the long-term vison and strategy for the business Oliver operates as the Technical Director for structural vibration and building isolation systems. In this role, he works on a wide range of projects, providing products, technical consultancy and long-term solutions to ensure that buildings are unaffected by structure-borne noise and vibration - predominantly from rail and industrial sources. As a Chartered Engineer and Fellow of the Institute of Mechanical Engineers, Oliver specialises in technically challenging projects, where standard solutions are not enough to control vibration, noise and thermal bridging in buildings and industrial machinery. He was the Farrat Lead Engineer on the Tottenham Hale Project.
In his role at Buro Happold, Matthew leads the 600 engineers who form the UK Buildings part of the business. Matthew specialises in acoustics, vibration and structural dynamics, working on high profile projects around the world. Currently these include: The Factory Manchester, Hammersmith LMS, Vlatava Philharmonic Hall in Prague, and Nyr Landspitali Hospital in Reykjavik. He is also a Visiting Professor at Cranfield University and has taught acoustics and various forms of dynamics at MSc level for 30 years. Matthew chairs the advisory group for the Centre for Engineering Education at University College London and received an MBE for his work in education in 2018.
Having studied both Engineering and Architecture, Chris has worked exclusively in the construction and building product design sector. Chris heads the development of Farrat Structural Thermal Break products and Facade Design Solutions. He is a passionate contributor to the global discussion on fire safety in high rise structures and building physics research. An advocate for achieving the highest level of energy efficiency Chris is the Farrat Lead on our new product development Project “Falcon” aiming to design out bouncy balconies. Chris is Chair of the British Construction Steel Association.
Responsible for the Spring led projects and systems, Darren’s specific duties include development of proprietary calculation tools, provision of internal training sessions and approval of new acoustic bearing types via established testing and manufacture routes, demonstrated during the unique challenges of “The Factory” design project.
Joe is completing a KTP project at Farrat and has a Degree in Mechanical Engineering. His 4-year sponsored iCASE PhD in building physics and heat transfer is due to complete this year. Joe will share an insight into the progress made in this field of research during the workshop.
