Elizabeth Quay, Perth – Ritz Carlton Hotel - Hera Engineering

Elizabeth Quay, Perth – Ritz Carlton Hotel

The Ritz Carlton Hotel development is one of the most exciting projects in Perth at the moment, with the famous luxury hotel chain landing for the first time in the WA’s capital, in the striking scenery of the newly opened Elizabeth Quay. Hera Engineering was appointed as specialist structural consultant for the top-down construction design. The project presented a series of challenges, such as high earthquake loads, three levels of basement below ground, high hydrostatic pressure loads and in general a limited space available to work, especially for the plunge columns.
Our involvement in the project helped achieving a reduced total cost of the project, by reducing the total steel tonnage for the plunge columns, allowing for a faster, simpler and efficient construction. To achieve this we have used alternative design philosophies, using international codes and advanced finite element analysis for composite column sections.
