Client: Catholic Education Office

Structural Engineer: MEC

Architect: PMDL Architecture & Design

A new free-standing pavilion incorporating a series of interlinked learning spaces and some smaller enclosed learning pods. There are also large covered outdoor spaces for multi-use.

MEC were engaged for the structural engineering in September 2009. Variable ground conditions lead to the selection of a reinforced concrete ground floor slab supported on concrete piers bearing on rock. A feature of the steel framed roof structure is the use of LiteSteel Beam to provide a structurally efficient and minimum depth fascia to the edges of the roof resulting in its light appearance.
