Meyer Shircore and Associates Architects
This project involved the construction of an 1800m2 factory / warehouse facility consisting of a heavy-duty slab-on-ground, structural steel portal frame, tilt concrete panels and steel framed, metal corrugated wall spandrels. It was developed by ABN Group and designed by Meyer Shircore.
The Maker’s specialised stonecutting equipment, overhead lifting facilities, gantry crane and grey water recycling system made this project a unique challenge.
We undertook a high level of briefing between the supplier of the equipment, the design team and ourselves to determine that the pad footing location, slab construction and horizontal tolerances in the area were all able to accommodate the installation of the equipment when it arrived from Germany.
- We successfully delivered in a quick program (approx. 6-7 months).
- Efficiency initiatives include a grey water recycling system and LED lighting.
Features of development
The overall development included an extensive car park modification, an oversite landscape upgrade, substantial façade modifications and upgrades to the existing building and a new staff alfresco area.
The building comprises a structural steel frame, tilt-up panels, brickwork, aluminium window glazing, louvres, roller doors and metal cladding plus metal roof sheeting and a plant deck.
