Designing deep basements for buildings in historic city-centre locations is always a challenging proposition. The Exhibition Road Quarter project at the Victoria & Albert Museum, London – providing a new entrance, courtyard and purpose-built gallery for temporary exhibitions – was no exception. This article discusses the key structural engineering challenges of the project.

In the UK, steel-framed buildings with precast concrete floors are a common form of multistorey building. Such structures may be used for car parking, for commercial, retail or residential property developments, and for public buildings, such as schools and hospitals. This hybrid form of construction has many benefits, including the provision of an early, secure and broad platform from which subsequent site activities can be undertaken.

This article is the last in a series of three addressing aspects of designing steel-framed buildings with precast concrete floors. The article deals with the means of reducing the sensitivity of such a building to disproportionate collapse.
