Industrial/Commercial – Fred Olsen Headquarters

Client: Fred Olsen Cruise Lines Ltd

Architect: SMC Charter Architects

Richard Jackson Ltd were appointed to undertake transportation, civil and structural services on the new headquarters building on the IP8 site near Copdock in Ipswich. The transportation assessment included remodelling the impacts of the new building on the nearby A1214 corridor and assessing the impact upon the A12/A14 Copdock interchange.

We also designed a minor improvement to the local highway network to facilitate the access to the site and improve safety. We drafted and agreed the Green Travel Plan aimed at reducing the impact of the development both during and between the peak hours. We also undertook site investigation, structural and civil engineering designs on this sustainable building.
