UOA School of Engineering
University of Auckland
Symonds Street, Auckland
P & G and Margin Tender
An extremely involved project from both a technical and project management perspective.
It involved infilling spaces between existing, seismically separate structures while maintaining the day-to-day operations of the university in the existing buildings. The main atrium structure consisted of a structural steel and concrete main floor structure, with a laminated timber cantilever diaphragm roof structure above. This was supported on slim tapered laminated timber columns and had strip glazing below which provided a striking architectural effect.
The project was carried at a fast track construction management basis, with sub trades being tendered progressively through the project as design and documentation was completed.
