Facts & Figures
  • Steel tonnage: 600 tons
Our Role

Design Assist, connection design, detailing, fabrication and installation of 570 tons of highly complex Architecturally Exposed Structural Steel.

Perspectives

Architects
The ‘regenerative’ concept is accommodated through the exposed finish elements of uniquely shaped steel.

Structural Engineers
The Regeneration Hall framing – providing an open view with a very tall, narrow, and long tower without transverse structural elements to tie things together – presented a challenge to build and assemble with stability.

The exhibit hall features large 3D cantilevering, edge trusses accommodating MEP (mechanical, electrical, plumbing) components.
