• 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.

  • New Brighton Waterfront, Christchurch

    Completion: 2018

    Architecture: AW Architects & Select Contracts

    Construction: Heb Construction

    Structex was engaged to provide the structural design of the playground, pool, splash pad & family area located at the New Brighton beachfront which formed part of the greater New Brighton regeneration project. The original New Brighton whale pool & playground held a special place in the heart of the local community for many years, but was in desperate need for an overhaul. This multi-faceted fast-track project required Structex to collaborate with many other designers and project stakeholders to develop a modern facility which also mirrors the past – including a clone of the original whale!

  • Structex continue to engage with a wide range of climbing walls and equipment.

    When it comes to climbing walls, structural engineers must have a heightened regard to the safety and security of design options specified for what are bound to be high-profile projects, accessed and used by large numbers of public users and spectators. Innovative new technologies as well as good, solid engineering are required in this area.

  • Structex has been engaged to design 5 ziplines overlooking the beautiful Kaikoura mountain range for EcoZip Flying Fox Adventures. The adventure tourism attraction is proposed to traverse across the Rakanui valley, with short walks through native bush between each zipline. Key challenges included working within the local topography to achieve desirable rider speed profiles, limited site access for construction, and accounting for natural hazards including flash flooding and rockfall. Structex has worked collaboratively with many other designers to provide an innovative zipline design, focused entirely around user safety and rider experience.
