We were appointed by Woolam Construction to provide value engineering and proposed revised floor layout for the Rockhampton hospital carpark. The client wanted to eliminate 30 columns per floor and did not want to increase the overall weight of the building.
The carpark was four stories with on-ground parking. All slabs were supported on concrete columns with concrete cores. The building was supported on piled foundations due to the ground conditions. Our new designs provided significant savings in vertical elements and piles.
