This multi-use residential and commercial development was designed to include large open spaces, which required a superstructure steel frame. Simplify designed a solution which provided support to vertical loading and lateral stability, whilst taking into account the space limitations for bracing.

The innovative design included a large section of flat roof with angled pitched roofs. Thich required the installation of both crank and cantilever beams. In addition, we included moment-resisting connections which allowed the architect and the end client to achieve their desired outcome, whilst overcoming space constraints.

The client initially opted for the piled foundation, which our team advised would increase the overall cost of the project. Instead, our team were able to design a more economical solution for the steel frame structure. This included a combination of a shallow flat raft with numerous trench fill footings. This results in lower construction costs, enabling the overall project to be completed within budget.
