Special structural design in steel and facades at 443 Queen Street


Hera Engineering has been commissioned by Probuild to design and document the special structural steel to support the complex pudium’s cladding for the high rise in 443 Queen Street, Brisbane. The project by the international architect Woha is very complex and requires complete modelling of the steel using BIM software.

The shape of the structure is not linear, but follows all sorts of different angles and patterns to achieve the best architectural vision. Once again Hera Engineering has been able to identify an innovative engineering solution that has reduced steel tonnages and simplified connections.

In fact Probuild chose us because of our ability to parametrically model the steel for complex facades and ensure that it could be fully coordinated and correctly detailed.

This is another important iconic façade project to be realized by Hera Engineering, enriching the portfolio of works studied with an innovative approach, reducing costs and increasing value.
