Challenges and solutions

Building on boundaries is always a challenge but a well-thought-out solution to install a 150mm full-height precast wall on the boundary to comply with the firewall regulations. A cantilever canopy over the arrival and dispatch areas allowed for undercover space with no obstructing columns.

The large windows and glazing elements on the facade of the building required extra steelwork to support it. The internal box gutter on the boundary side was installed to save as much space as possible and ensure no water leaking into the building during high rainfall events. 

"The experience in dealing with Central Steel Build was a pleasure and very professionally executed. I really appreciated the support of the Project Manager to get the project over the initial hurdles and underway. The installation contractors at Valbro Construction were also great to deal with and certainly went the extra mile to help me out wherever they could."
