Ceilings & Partitions

Ceilings & Partitions


Ceilings and partitions pose a risk to building occupants if not properly designed by a structural engineer, as they are susceptible to collapse under rare earthquake or wind events

  • AS2785 contains the design requirements for suspended ceilings in Australia, and the loading scenarios the ceilings must be able to accommodate
  • KUSCH works alongside designers to ensure that these architectural elements can accommodate the required forces, whilst still achieving the designer’s vision

KUSCH’s ceiling and partition design services include the following:

  • Design of ceiling and wall framing
  • Design of ceiling hangers and concrete anchors
  • Design of load bearing and non-load bearing partition walls
  • Seismic design of walls and partitions
  • Structural assessment of existing walls and partitions
