• 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.

    Construction: Bushnell Builders

    The complex was damaged by liquefaction and lateral stretching towards the Heathcote River after the February 2011 earthquake. Starting after the February earthquake, Structex provided assessments on the condition of the buildings, advised and oversaw repairs, assessed the seismic strength, and designed strengthening for the existing buildings. With areas of the resthome remaining occupied during construction work in other areas. The wing closest to the river had the most damage and was replaced with a new structure in 2017/2018 which featured ground improvement using stone columns. Structex provided structural design of the new wing including a new concrete ground floor slab designed to resist deflection due to ground movement.

    Architecture: Bob Burnett Architecture

    Construction: ZBuilt

    A residential house rebuilt following the Canterbury earthquakes. The site is located in a mass-movement zone on the Port Hills and is subject to rock fall risks. Rockfall risks were reduced by a catchment area. The house is supported on a robust foundation system consisting of braced timber piles with plywood subfloor bracing and steel ties to reduce structure movement due to land movement down slope. The house uses a CLT floor and CLT skillion roof over the front portion of the house. Timber walls were prefabricated which reduced construction time. The house has a 6 Star homestar rating due to insulation and energy efficiency detailing and featured in the 2018 Superhome tour.

    Completion: 2018

    Architecture: Fiona MacPherson Architecture

    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.

    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.
