Subsequently in 2008, CCM were appointed Architects for one of the large apartment buildings, Berkeley Dallard.

The seismic strengthening of this large concrete structure was a key design issue and had to be woven into the design without significant impact on the optimal plans for the apartments.

This was achieved by inserting substantial shear walls in 5 locations across the building, and also in the long direction around the new lift core.

The design team had many briefing sessions with the residents, to discuss how we would make the new apartments warm, safe and sized appropriately and how children will be provided for within and around the complex.
