Challenges and solutions

A multi-storey building was proposed to take advantage of the surrounding views across the river and wetlands.

A few challenges were encountered including allowance for floor height thresholds between internal and external spaces on the subfloors and ensuring the lower-level support bracing didn’t interfere with the use of the open space beneath the first floor. However, these were overcome through careful collaboration between the architect and our internal structural design team.

“I was impressed with Central Steel Build’s quality of service for the structural steel package of my house. Everything was delivered on-time and the frame went together really well. My house is the only one in the street that has been built with hot dipped galvanised structural steel, so I have received a lot of comments as people have seen it go up.”
