Engineering in the Pub: Jun 2022
June 7 @ 5:45 pm - 7:00 pmFree
Northrop will be presenting two of their 2021 Award nominated projects.
Smart Design Studio (High Commendation 2021 Small Project Award)
Smart Design Studio is a fantastic adaptive re-use project with numerous architectural and engineering challenges, to create what is now an apartment and a commercial office space for an architectural practice. The project involved partial demolition, strengthening and re-use of a 1950’s brick and sawtooth roof warehouse; and the construction of a new three-storey building. The key challenges for this project were the parabolic brick vaults which formed the roof, the curved brickwork façade and the cable-stayed cantilever internal stairs.
Presented by Jonathan Low – Principal, Structural Engineer
Honeysuckle City Campus, University of Newcastle (Sustainable Structures 2021 Award Winner)
To create the right environment for their School of Creative Industries and Innovation Hub, the University of Newcastle wanted a building that provided open floor plates and transparency. Northrop were engaged for the structural design of this project, and used recent experience with mass timber buildings to deliver this project alongside EJE Architecture, Hansen Yuncken, Binderholz and Savcon. The mass timber structure responded to the University of Newcastle’s sustainability aspirations, as well as to providing an elegant, exposed structure.
Presented by Matthew Burke – Structural Engineer
