recent projects


Cornerstone College, Mt Barker


Herriot Consulting were engaged by the School as the Principal Structural Engineer to provide the structural design for the 2 storey Middle School Building.

The project involved a structural steel frame supporting a suspended concrete floor slab that included a cantilevered balcony slab around the perimeter. Walling was a mixture of precast panels and lightweight infill. Aramax roofing was chosen by the Architect and was rolled on site.

As part of the Middle School building development a separate open structure was built above an outdoor basketball court which involved Aramax roof sheeting spanning 18 metres.


Totness Automotive Facility

Built around 2014, the facility involves 3 separate steel framed buildings with precast walling. A challenging element of the design included the curved canopy where it met at external corners. Careful attention to detailing and thorough co-ordination with the shop detailer meant

the framing was erected with minimal problems.


Apartment Living - Port Road, Woodville

Completed in 2015 this 3 storey apartment building was built with a precast concrete lift wells and party walls with a structural steel frame 

supporting suspended Bondek slabs to achieve improved sound and fire rating between floors and between adjoining apartments. 

The walls were infilled as brick veneer and AAC veneer construction to give a traditional appearance desired by the Architect.
