We were engaged to design and monitor the construction of a new boat shed and bee-keeping workshop at a remote location on the outskirts of the Abel Tasman National Park. The project required various specific engineer-designed items. This included timber-pile and concrete-pile foundations with concrete ground beams. Ecoply and Multibraces were used for the suspended slabs, bracing, and a ply ceiling diaphragm. The project's remote location (only accessible via boat) meant we had to design the structure with material access in mind, minimising the amount of material that needed to be brought in. We worked closely with the architect to meet the client's unique architectural requirements.
