The building is a 2,000m2 coolstore for the storage of seeds and related products.
Engenium’s role was Lead Design Consultant, Structural and Civil Engineer and Architect.
This project is an example of close collaboration between the Contractor and the Structural Engineer in developing temporary works which are integrated with the permanent structure.
The perimeter columns were designed with cantilever capacity so that they could temporarily support the perimeter precast wall panels.
A clear site resulting from reduced propping, allowed the panels and roof to be safely fitted together at ground level on the building footprint, and lifted in sections to limit work at height.
