2nd September 2014
The Local Government, Lottery West and Stockland jointly funded the centre equipped with meeting and training rooms, a state of the art library, a children’s and parent’s meeting area, gaming station, and two media centres with leading-edge technology. The architect’s vision was for the building to seamlessly integrate with its natural surroundings which inspired the aesthetics.
Site Architecture Studio invited our team to supply all of the structural engineering according to the brief and based on visual aesthetics. The budget and parameters of the project presented our team with a challenging task but allowed us to showcase our capabilities in supplying designs that reduce construction costs. As an ongoing client pleased with our work, we were also asked to provide geotechnical work including piling designs, site investigations and soil testing and analysis.
Senior Engineer, Miceal Concannon, who led the project said, “The challenge of working on such an architecturally unique design gave Structerre the opportunity to showcase its capabilities. This building means a lot to the local community and it has been very rewarding to be part of the team”.
