Challenges and solutions

The main workshop structure needed to attach seamlessly to the existing infrastructure which included three different roof heights and gutter types. This was a significant challenge in the design stage to achieve our client's vision. The end result was a tapered width of 24m to 5.8m over a 73m length. 

To ensure the new building was accessible to the CFA for emergencies, a 3m driveway down the side of the angled structure was created. 

We conducted several site visits to measure the existing building, ensuring our custom box gutter system would successfully take water from the attached structures. To achieve this, we set the columns off the existing building, allowing for the correct gutter width.
