Design for Foundation
Designing Portal Shed
Design of Mariposa Crescent Grand Resident
This grand house required the design of an amazing cantilevered staircase with single stringer, stone columns and high open spaces with a 5-6m ceiling.
Design of Portal frames for large ballroom at 14 Stanbury Avenue, Christchurch
We were asked to provide an engineering solution for the whole house, with particular focus on a wide-span ballroom.
The “look and feel”, and cost were important factors for the architect and client.
We started with the idea of using 2 portal frames across the building, however, due to budget constraints, we were asked to revise our design.
Our team then came up with an innovative design approach for the ceiling diaphragm with drag beams on the side walls.
This meant we were able to totally eliminate the need for any portal frames.
Our client is greatly impressed by the savings on the final construction cost.
Roof trusses for 16 Birch Hill, Canterbury
This project involved copying the original trusses as closely as possible to a new extension.
The challenge was to retain the original structure and form in the new trusses. This was solved, especially well, when connecting the old trusses to the new trusses.
New house on Major Hornbrook Road, Mt Pleasant
We were the nominated structural engineers for the project.
This involved specifically structurally designed block retaining walls, and engineered steel structures to support the floor and deck.
House relocation at 132 Kiri Kiri Road Oxford
We were involved to design a new structurally engineered foundation and a new wall bracing design.
We were able to successfully solve the bracing challenge of this relocated building from a medium to high wind and snow zone.
