Northern Above Bar

A planned performing arts centre located in Southampton.

Tully De’Ath were involved in the pre planning and scheme design stages of a major new development in Southampton.

Northern Above Bar was designed as an extensive mixed use scheme, providing private and affordable housing, retail areas and an exciting new Performaing arts centre for Southampton, within sight of the Historic Civic Centre.

Tully De’Ath worked closely with Assael Architects to minimise column numbers both in the arts space and in the underground carpark below. This provided an open and flexible arts space and an easily accessible car park.

Structure around the arts spaces and auditoria were engineered to meet the necessary acoustic requirements, taking into account the adjacent galleries, car parks and residential uses.

Innovative construction methods, such as the use of bubbledeck flooring in place of traditional flat slabs helped to reduce build costs whilst cutting the required column numbers by a quarter.

Tully De’Ath have also undertaken preliminary soil testing, travel planning and transport statements to support the design and planning phases.

Tully De’Ath have been appointed by East Thames to undertake Masterplanning services on the proposed redevelopment of Bromley by Bow.

The aim of the development is to replace derelict and under-utilized industrial space with a high quality mixed use development. As well as providing a range of new employment space, the scheme will create an attractive and accessible riverside environment.
