  • Mataketake Range, South Westland

    Completion: 2020

    Architecture: Red Gheko Architecture

    Construction: Led by Backcountry Trust NZ

    An 8 bunk backcountry tramping hut perched high on the Mataketake Range tops, South Westland. This hut was built in memory of renowned NZ Conservationist Andy Dennis, and funded by his generous bequest.

    Situated on the site to take advantage of the amazing views over tussock tops and out to the Tasman Sea, this provided a challenge for the structural design to sustain the extreme wind, earthquake and snow design loads while using conventional timber framed construction methods.

    Completion: 2017

    Architecture: Nott Architects

    Construction: Gary Mason Construction

    Formerly the offices of the Lyttelton Harbour Board, this 140-year old building was badly damaged after the Canterbury earthquakes. Having lost a number of heritage buildings in Lyttelton, including the upper storey of this building, the owners, community and council were eager to retain the remaining brick façade. Structex led the way in developing a scheme to refurbish and strengthen the building as well as securing a grant for the owner to retain the heritage elements.

  • Rolleston Square Commercial Centre

    Completion: 2019

    Project Manager: One Four Limited

    Architecture: Buchan Architects

    Construction: Armitage Williams

    The Rolleston Square commercial centre has been developed over a period of 15 years to provide retail and community services to Rolleston as the town and region have rapidly grown. It now incorporates occupants such as a regional health hub, national retailers, cafes and restaurants, gyms, and even the local MP’s office.

    Structex was engaged from day 1 to provide structural and civil engineering services, and architectural detailing support. The structural design has in many areas been to Importance Level 4 for facilities required to be operational immediately post-disaster, and in fact the largest space which was occupied by The Warehouse was subject to a significant aftershock during the opening ceremony. Those stages constructed before the Canterbury earthquakes have remained open throughout the disaster with very little damage to repair and, as a consequence, have been readily re-insured with low excess. A key aspect of the design has also been to have a building envelope allowing flexibility of tenant fitout, and multiple tenancy changes have occurred during the life of the project with relative ease.

    Sustainability and attention to design detail has been a core project objective, adding value for the owners and community. Examples of this approach in action include: A structural roof system providing a high level of insulation and eliminating the need for ceilings, a structural grid readily suited to retail space requirements, attention to the support of non-structural elements to limit damage in snow or seismic events, and paved stormwater drainage well filtered before discharge to the soils. We have even re-purposed some redundant concrete elements from the early stages to later buildings and landscape features.

    Awards:

    This project received a Silver Award in the Retail Category of the 2020 NZ Commercial Project Awards.

  • Lilybank Road, Tekapo

    Completion: 2019

    Architecture: Nott Architects

    Construction: Wilson Building

    A new house sited on the east side of Lake Tekapo. As the house site is subjected to extremely high wind and snow loads it required specific engineering design for the roof support and bracing elements. The house was constructed in Timaru in three sections and transported to site where it was connected to the new foundations. This enabled higher quality assurance and fewer site delays, and also keeping inspection costs down as our local Timaru office were able to do the main inspections in Timaru. In-situ linking corridors were built on site to connect the three sections. The structure is predominantly timber framed, with steel portals and roof purlins over the living area to create a high arched ceiling.

The site covers an area of approximately 3,200m² including carparking.

    Buildings were strengthened to 100% of current code loadings. Work to the main auditorium included a new steel frame supporting the new GRC (glass fibre reinforced concrete) street façade, strengthened frames to support stage lighting and acoustic systems, and a new plant deck built over the adjacent building in order to house ventilation units. Due to the liquefaction prone ground under the buildings, new slabs and slab overlays were designed to allow for loss of support and differential settlement in order to reduce future earthquake damage.

    Work was done in three stages; demolition and/or strengthening of the buildings, construction of new structure, followed by the kitchen and site works.

    Completion: 2018

    Architecture: Fulton Ross Team Architecture

    Construction: Simon Construction

    Located in Addington adjacent to the Tower Junction retail development and the car park of the Christchurch Railway Station, the heritage listed building is a decommissioned water tower built in 1883 from concrete that originally serviced the Addington Railway Workshops. Working in concert with the project team to protect the Heritage values of the tower we were engaged by the Christchurch City Council to provide structural advise starting with securing the building after the 2011 earthquake and going on to assessing the building’s seismic strength and developing repair works to restore the building to the strength if was prior to the earthquakes.

    The seismic assessment was complicated by the poor ground conditions (the tower had settled unevenly during construction, a 1964 survey found the top of the tower was displaced by 190mm from the centreline) requiring assessment of the rocking action of the tower. The design made use of BIM modelling to calculate building mass and centre of gravity.

  • Pacific Tower, 166 Gloucester Street, Christchurch

    Completion: 2010

    Architecture: Foley Design

    Construction: AMC Construction

    The 22-level Pacific Tower is tall and slender, needing a structural steel building system that provides a light structure to reduce foundation sizes and allow fast construction. However, there are seismic and wind sensitivity issues in such a tall building. Structex met these challenges by including an eccentric k-braced tube up the centre of the building to limit torsional effects, and carefully located and detailed structure to suit hotel room configurations. Christchurch’s tallest building performed well in the 2010 earthquakes, being one of the few remaining CBD high-rise buildings which could be readily and economically repaired. Today it is home to the Rendezvouz Hotel.

  • Tiwai Point, Bluff

    Completion: 2011

    Construction: Fulton Hogan

    Designed and constructed between 2008 and 2011, this project involved the overall project design and coordination, assessment and reburbishment of the existing bridge piers and design of new approaches and abutments for a total deck replacement of approximately 500m length. The new deck consisted of a two-lane wide 900mm double hollowcore structure. The deck units were a Stahlton design-build component. Structex worked with contractor Fulton Hogan to design a bespoke gantry crane system to remove the old sections of deck and place the new double hollowcore units. This unique construction methodology gave Fulton Hogan a competitive advantage, enabling it to secure the contract with the Invercargill City Council.

    Completion: 2008

    Architecture: Weir Walker

    Construction: Hawkins

    Originally known as “Club Tower” this was the South Island’s first A-grade office accommodation tower with a five-star green building rating. It comprises a nine-storey steel frame tower over a three-storey pre-cast concrete podium with full basement parking.  The site presented geotechnical challenges caused by its proximity to the Avon River; ultimately a reinforced concrete basement raft foundation was adopted that extended to the boundaries and neighbouring buildings on all sides. HSBC Tower suffered only minor damage and was passed fit for reoccupation following the Canterbury earthquake of February 2011 without requiring any structural repair. The building’s performance is widely credited to the expertise of the Structex team and the quality of workmanship.  It has been described as the safest multi-level building in Christchurch, and has become a case study for the successful design of high-rise buildings in an earthquake zone.

    Construction: Kumanu

    This house was built on a site after the original house was demolished following the Canterbury earthquakes. It is located on the top buffer zone of a mass movement zone on the Port Hills, and so has specialist foundations to anchor the house to the more stable upper part of the site. The house sits on a braced steel subfloor which forms a carport and storage area, with living areas upstairs. The house utilised prefabricated insulated wall and ceiling panels and has been designed to a higher standard of energy efficiency and performance than minimum Building Code requirements. The house is clad in Totara harvested by the Department of Conservation following a windfall event, increasing sustainability of the house. Structex provided structural design of the foundation and subfloor, with input into SED timber elements in the skillion roof and walls.

The house is clad in Totara harvested by the Department of Conservation following a windfall event, increasing sustainability of the house. Structex provided structural design of the foundation and subfloor, with input into SED timber elements in the skillion roof and walls.

  • Location: Hari Hari, West Coast

    Structex was engaged to design the powerhouse for the 7.7MW Amethyst Hydro Scheme. This involved the design of a precast concrete building envelope with a removable roof for equipment installation. The foundations were over 4m deep to encompass the penstock generator and tailrace. A challenging design due to the impact of the Alpine Fault located less than 1km away. Health & Safety was the key driver in the design due to the harsh environment and depth of excavations.

  • Addington, Christchurch

    Completion: 2005

    Architecture: Fulton Ross Team Architects

    Construction: Fletcher Construction

    The design of these three-storey townhouses was challenged by constraints of time, style and serviceability, demanding a design solution outside of the normal approach.

    The solution developed used the benefits of a precast concrete system. Floor systems were a custom precast element including service ducts. Complex stair shapes with winders were formed in a mould with multiple re-uses. Elements were tailored to the capacity of the crawler crane. The architectural aesthetics of traditional cladding forms integrated with the appearance of the traditional neighbourhood.

    Design Features:

    • Fully precast walls, floors, and stairs with winders.
    • Efficient use of concrete for structure, acoustics, fire protection.

  • SH2 Motu Bridge Replacement Temporary Works

    Completion: 2019

    Construction: Fulton Hogan

    Structex was engaged to design the temporary works to enable both the construction of the new Motu bridge, and then the subsequent demolition of the original 1920s single-lane bridge. This involved a creative self-supporting cradle system which removed the need for substantial propping when casting the piers, as well as lifting plans and careful cross-reviews of designer and contractor methodologies. A key challenge which was overcome was ensuring the stability of the original structure when parts were being cut and removed to maintain a safe site for those carrying out the demolition works.

  • Re:START Container Mall, Cashel St, Christchurch

    Completion: 2011-2014 (staged)

    Architecture: The Buchan Group

    Construction: Leighs Construction

    The Re:START Container Mall was a critical part of re-establishing a commercial retail presence back in  the  earthquake-damaged  Christchurch  CBD. Restart  the  Heart  Trust  were  looking  to  create  a “funky” way to kick-start the CBD’s retail sector. It has proved to be a major catalyst to re-establishing business confidence, as well as a strong sign of the resilience of the people of Christchurch and their desire for a vibrant new centre. It has also enabled people, both locals and tourists, to have a close-up view of the demolition and reconstruction of the city, by establishing a “finger” of access into the cordoned red zone. The complex was relocated in 2014 to a prominent corner site alongside the Avon River to make way for  the  re-construction  of  permanent  buildings – further  fulfilling  the  fundamental  motivations  of the project.

    Some key design features included a fast-tracked programme of 3 months for detailed design, approvals and construction as well as a future-proofed design of the container modifications to allow for reconfiguration and further modification of the container buildings to accommodate future sites.

    Completion: 2016

    Construction: Leighs Construction

    The Hub is a large existing shopping centre on the west side of Christchurch. Design of major reconstruction started before the 2010/11 Canterbury earthquakes, and was then modified to account for increased seismic design codes. Whilst constructed in two main stages, the work had to happen around ongoing trading in the centre, requiring careful consideration of construction methodologies in close consultation with the contractor and operators. This implied significant temporary works design, integration with existing building elements and close relationships with the project team throughout to enhance buildability.
