Numerous public works projects have been carried out from public services buildings to jetties to skate parks utilising non standard construction techniques and ensuring durability requirements are meet in harsh environments such as in the tidal spray zones.
Non standard construction techniques are considered such as that used for the construction of the Barry Curtis Skate Park project. Design of the concrete mix had to consider the technique of shotcreting, especially for the crucible with its construction issue of vertical shotcreting and also the need for a resiliant finish throughout using fibre mesh reinforcing.
Structural Design of sculptures typically involves work on non standard geometrical shapes and materials requiring some innovation and flexibility in the use the design codes and special non-linear dynamic analysis software.
We aim to ensure the artist's dream is fullfilled to the fullest extent while providing a safe stable and durable structure.
