Carlaw Park, New Zealand
Carlaw Park, New Zealand We provided structural and façade design for the $35m Carlaw Park postgraduate student accommodation.

The academic development comprises four modern apartment buildings between four and seven storeys high above a single-storey podium with car parking on-grade.

The buildings have a mixture of two, three and four bedroom apartments to suit the varying needs of the post-graduate students.

We investigated several different structural framing systems during the concept design phase. The adopted solution comprises 3.0m wide double tee floor units with an in-situ topping spanning between structural steel beams that span between 250SHS grout filled steel columns. Resistance to lateral loads is provided by precast concrete shear walls.

This solution was adopted because it proved to be the most cost effective. It minimised the floor cycle during construction and offered space savings through improved space planning for the apartment and car park layouts.
