  • Modularisation and coordination of plantroom into prefabricated modules 
  • BIM Modelling and production of shop drawings, with all materials and cutting lists scheduled
  • Structural design and certification of the prefabricated modules

Design Achievements: 

  • Off-site manufacturing of the plantroom enabled the mechanical construction program to be compressed by 8-12 weeks compared to traditional site construction. 
  • Prefab modules lifted into position over a weekend, with formwork construction  commencing the next day

Design Highlights:

  • Frames constructed using weld-free SUPA framing
  • Provision of material schedules allowed for accurate materials ordeing and minimised wastage
  • Modules weighed up to 8.5t 

Design Considerations:

  • Lifting
  • Assembly
  • Seismic
  • Operating loads & vibration
