Services required of us included structural, civil, seismic and fire engineering design.
Stage 1 was the assessment of two existing structures to determine seismic strengthening costs. Once the costs were assessed, demolition was recommended.
Stage 2 was to design a ‘fit for purpose’ retail and commercial block to maximise the potential of the site.
A new structure was constructed from precast concrete and steel with extensive glazing to the street frontage on two sides. The façade included a steel chain-mail screen suspended from outriggers.
Issues around fire safety and geotechnical conditions required innovative design solutions.
