The russell inn
Design and engineering documentation of the Russell Inn in Morley. Working with the building company Built Ink to provide an economical design, being that the building is fully glazed along one edge.
The site presented an interesting problem in terms of layout for the building as the site is only 15m wide but 180m long. Being that the building was very long and slender, was fully glazed along one edge and had no significant internal walls, the buiding required a portal skeleton frame to offer stability that was hidden by the architectural design.
Bayswater Industrial Units
Five 1000+ square metre units each fitted with overhead cranes.
Collie Commercial Building
The original design for this building was found to exceed the owner’s budget by approximately $200k, disallowing any finance approvals and prohibiting construction. B Waddell Consulting Engineers was appointed to redesign the building to try and reduce costs. Using practical and efficient solutions, the new design resulted in the saving of construction costs by well over the required $200k, which allowed the building to be financed and constructed.
