The market’s facade is brought to life by curved spaceframe columns and cantilevered awnings. Structerre were responsible for the Structural and Civil Design and Documentation for this exciting retail project. One of the main challenges faced by our civil engineers was the need to expand the market’s carpark over an existing council drainage compensation basin.
Using innovative thinking, they overcame site constraints and a high groundwater table by employing the EcoAID stormwater detention system. This design alternative provided considerable cost and installation time savings compared to other options explored, which included the use of an extensive suspended concrete slab system.
