• Recent earthquakes in New Zealand have shown a disconnect between winery infrastructure design and desired seismic performance. In particular has been the protection of liquid processing and storage operations. Out of Structex’s Lyttelton team was born ONGUARD, the first genuine seismic tank system specifically designed to protect liquid storage tanks and their contents from earthquake damage and loss. Structex continues to provide ongoing technical expertise to ONGUARD in New Zealand, California and other international regions susceptible to the effects of earthquakes.

  • 193 Travis Road, New Brighton

    Completion: 2018

    Architecture: Architecture HDT

    Contractor: Apollo Projects

    The new $38.6 million QEII centre replaces the former Commonwealth games venue that was significantly damaged and subsequently demolished.

    The 5500-square-metre facility features a 130m long hydroslide, a 25x25m lap pool, a toddlers pool with adjoining splash pad, a lazy river, a learn-to-swim pool, a hydrotherapy pool, a spa, sauna and steam room. The hydroslide boasts New Zealand’s first Aquasphere, where riders enter a giant sphere and bank around the walls before dropping back into the high-speed twists and turns.

    Among the engineering innovations present are the moveable pool floor and ground improvement works. The 25m 10-lane pool has a moveable floor, which can be raised and lowered to allow for deep-water activity at one end and shallower activities such as aqua fitness and swimming lessons at the other. As the area suffered major liquefaction in the earthquakes, the building footprint sits atop some two thousand rammed aggregate piers (RAP’s). The 600mm diameter RAP’s extend to a depth of 4m and serve to create a stiff soil crust that supports the foundations and reduces the susceptibility to liquefaction and differential settlement.

  • 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: 2019

    Construction: T&D Construction

    To accommodate the large volumes of grape marc produced each vintage, Structex was engaged early 2018 by Yealands Estate Winery to design a new storage facility. The first stage of the development consists of an impressive 80m long x 26m wide building capable of storing some 10,000m3 of material. A large steel framed roof structure sits above an unrestrained and joint-less steel fibre reinforced slab. The high performance 40MPa slab slopes to perimeter precast walls allowing leachate to drain and be placed in large storage tanks alongside it. Significant efforts were made in the detailing to enhance durability and accommodate the very high exposure category from both the leachate and close proximity to the coastline.

  • Addington, Christchurch

    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.

    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.

    Construction: Robinson Construction

    Winstanley Kerridge is a three-storey commerical building in the Blenheim town centre. The building provides hospitality and office space, predominantly to its namesake accounting firm Winstanley Kerridge. Structex acted in a lead consultant role while undertaking full structural design services for the project.

    The building is primarily of precast concrete construction, including the flooring system, columns and walls. The latter typically forms the lateral load resisting system as well as much of the exterior facade. These were detailed to reduce the amount of damage in an earthquake event. Curtain wall glazing and a decorative aluminium screen complete the exterior look. A large geogrid reinforced gravel raft sits beneath the building to mitigate the risk of lateral spreading, due to its proximity to the nearly Taylor River.

    Completion: Expected early 2020

    Architecture: Fulton Ross Team Architects

    Kilwinning Lodge No. 23 is a unique two-storey building that has been a focal point of the Lyttelton community for some 140 years. Structex’s Lyttelton office acquired the building after it was badly damaged following the 2010-2011 Canterbury earthquake sequence. The proposed strengthening and redevelopment activities require substantial work to bring the building up to the requirements of today’s building code requirements while maintaining its heritage fabric and unique character. Local Christchurch firm and specialist conservation architects, Fulton Ross Team Architects, have been actively involved in the re-development plans. The building is currently in the building consent process with construction expected to begin mid-2019.

    The Woolstore project involved the strengthening and refurbishment of an existing industrial building located in the Te Ana Marina development. The building, historically used as a woolstore, was converted into offices and ablutions for the marina, and hospitality and retail spaces. The work included installing glazing and entrances along the south side of the building to provide a visual and physical connection to the water and marina. It also included installing a series of steel braces with new shallow concrete foundations throughout the building to bring it up to current code requirements. The existing large-span timber roof trusses, timber columns, and timber wall framing were retained.

    Structex also provided structural engineering services for the auxiliary structures around the new Te Ana Marina development

  • 62 Worchester Boulevard, Christchurch

    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.

    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.

    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.

    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.

    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.
