The Arup engineered V&A Dundee is to open to the public this weekend.
The £80M V&A Dundee was designed by Japanese architects Kengo Kuma & Associates, following an international competition.
Arup’s team included structural engineer Graeme Moncur and Andrew Harvey, who was resident engineer on the project. The team provided civil, structural and electrical engineering, along with specialist acoustic, fire, maritime and façade design services for client Dundee City Council.
The three-storey building consists of an upper level of open gallery spaces cantilevering off two lower levels of workshop and office spaces. Precast concrete panels were used to clad the double curved concrete façade.
It was constructed over the water with the aid of a huge cofferdam filled with 12,500t of stone.
