Recipients of the Award for Small Building Projects – Balmain House
Presented by Peter Standen, Managing Director, Partridge
The Balmain House project involved excavation depths of 10m; design of sandstone sea-walls; remediation of an 1880’s sandstone heritage cottage; expressed timber framing; a steel-framed tension tie roof and a steel helical stair; off-form cast insitu concrete structure; heated polished concrete floor toppings; brass balustrades and furniture items; bespoke large format steel framed windows with cast-in reveals; and a 5m cantilever floor plate hung from curved off-form concrete walls acting as deep beams with large voids in the back-span.
Recipient of the Award for Medium Building Projects – Pyrmont Bridge Restoration
Presented by Mitchell Starkey, Structural Engineer, Robert Bird Group
Pyrmont Bridge requires ongoing maintenance commensurate with a public timber bridge that is over 100 years old. A significant percentage of structural components like timber trusses and piers required replacement. Stage 1 of restoration involved replacing the Timber Pier Sets, and Stage 2 would see the replacement of the timber trusses. Robert Bird Group (RBG) was engaged to provide the construction engineering methodology for the now completed Stage 1.
