West Moreton Anglican College

Karrabin, Queensland, Australia

To cater for future growth at the school site, Calibre Consulting provided civil and structural engineering services including contract documentation and construction verification, for a new two-storey middle school building. The development also included a new carpark and set down area, as well as a suspended bridge and walkways between carpark and middle school building. Two existing classrooms were extended as part of the works.

Our team’s use of finite element modelling (FEM) was fundamental to the success of this project, as it allowed us to maximise the suspended first floor level and the striking structural steelwork over the courtyard area.

The suspended walkways and bridge structures were constructed using concrete slabs supported on bondek and structural steelwork as a cost-effective, easy to construct and aesthetic solution.

As the site was steeply sloping, a key challenge was to ensure compliant pedestrian and vehicular gradients, while also establishing overland flow paths to prevent water entering the building.
