Office Archive Block

This is an infill development of an original internal dancehall/cinema, apparently constructed in an old garden.

This 2-storey office archive building is a reinforced flat slab construction. The founding material for this concrete structure was partly on rock with the remaining backfilled material for a depth of 6m. This site probably served as an old quarry for the building of Floriana. Due to limited access to the internal site, 300mm diameter micro piles were adopted, socketed in rock at the bearing depth. An old arched reservoir was reutilized for the harvesting of rainwater for this large roof area.
