To provide geotechnical, structural, civil and fire engineering design as part of a design team from feasibility and concept through to construction completion.
This architecturally designed upgrade of the existing multi-use building, incorporated a new ablutions block and enclosed walkway linking the two facilities. The project included stormwater design, new foundations, steel frames, masonry and timber walls, as well as demolition and strengthening of existing brick walls.
The geotechnical report indicated the site had geotechnical challenges which required upgraded foundation solutions including foundation ties and rafting.
We were required to create a structural design that met the client’s criteria, while minimally disrupting the interior of the multi-use building. This was achieved by applying strengthening to the exterior using buttressing structures for strengthening and structural framing of additional walkways and utility rooms.
We also had to design on-site stormwater disposal solutions.
