Hera Engineering was appointed by the facade contractor to provide detailed design for the light weight facade of the Melbourne Hotel.
The facade panels were engineered to be entirely prefabricated offsite and then lifted and installed onsite as complete units. This allowed for complete removal of scaffolding and greatly improved construction schedule. The system was fully customised for the project.
We undertook the lifting study of the panels, which was particularly challenging due to the use of lightweight, slender sections. Our construction engineering team came up with a smart solution which allowed for lifting without any additional steel.
When you are working with us on facade project we can add our expertise in construction engineering, which is included in the design. This results in better and more economical outcomes for our clients.
