Reducing Risk Through Pre-Fabrication
We have been involved in several projects at Auckland Grammar. Of particular note is the Gymnasium and Pavilion.
The brief for this gymnasium project called for 36 m clear spans for the roof of this single storey structure. This would allow the building to house 3 basketball courts. We achieved this via a two-way steel truss structure supported on cantilevering precast concrete fin columns.
In order to save time and avoid the risk of working at height we worked with the contractor to pre-fabricate the entire roof structure on the ground. It was then lifted as one element.
