Engineering in the Pub: Jul 2022

July 5 @ 5:45 pm - 7:00 pm


Floating Design Store Staircase – Partridge (Unusual Building Project Award Winner)

The sculptural floating stair is a wonderful example of excellence in steel design, engineering, and construction, while dealing with the constraints of an existing building and the demands of a live fit-out project. The project involved design and documentation of a self-supporting, helical structural steel stair, which spanned two storeys high and then separated into two independent flights at the upper transition. The stair was wrapped in lathed timber battens and finished with marble treads. This required significant strengthening of the existing 1914-era floors, and the introduction of tuned massed dampers, to achieve the required stiffness and vibration limits under footfall.

Presented by Tadd Walford

Granville Park Stadium – Northrop (Unusual Building Project Award High Commendation)

Northrop were engaged across all engineering disciplines to deliver the unique Granville Park Stadium project. This new state-of-the-art community sports pavilion is home to Two Blues Rugby Union team, with seating for 750 spectators, and is the first mass-timber framed grandstand structure in Australia. Being a community project, it was important that costs were managed to within budget – a real challenge when working with an architecturally ambitious mass timber structure.

Presented by Nick Boey
