Challenges and solutions

To answer the requirement of a 15m wide opening and the clear span design, we applied a novel girder truss solution to limit deflection while maintaining minimum required clearances. 

Collaboration between Central Steel Build, the architect, and roller door supplier was required in relation to the firewalls between different sections of the building. Due to restricted site access and the project scale, there was a lot of coordination between our engineer and third-party installer so the roof could be designed in segments to be crane lifted and filled in afterward.
