This project involves the redevelopment of the entire site and the construction of a new, world class, state-of-the-art museum, exhibiting the most important Burns collection in the world.
This £21m project incorporates JJI-Joists extensively throughout the ground floor, first floor and roof structures. The design of the JJI‑Joist and BJ Beam components was undertaken by James Jones & Sons Ltd, with their inclusion within the overall building scheme approved by the Architect and Engineer. Supply was through Alexanders Timber Design.
The overall project used 5,700 lm of JJI-Joists and 170 lm of BJ Beam. The ground floor construction incorporated 350mm JJI‑Joists and the first floor 400mm JJI‑Joists and 195mm BJ Beams.
The striking wave-shaped roof was constructed using 220mm JJI‑Joists and 300mm BJ Beams.
