Challenges and solutions

We needed to design a raised floor sub-frame that suited the yard layout and fitted our client's grated flooring. Our design team worked closely with key stakeholders to ensure the joint flooring system married together seamlessly.

To allow for ample cross ventilation, we incorporated heavy-duty adjustable custom wall vents and roof whirlybirds into our design.

With the building site situated in a challenging location, we helped our client with several surveys to ensure all underground services and existing easements were accurately located and footings were designed to fit the building footprint.
