  18. 18. State Theatre of Western Australia Australia Client Department of Culture and the Arts The landmark State Theatre of Western Australia, located in the Perth cultural centre, is a new theatre complex comprising a 575 seat auditorium, 200 seat studio theatre and ancillary rehearsal and performance spaces. Aurecon assisted with the preparation of the business case and site selection study, before providing key sustainable building services design during the second project phase. During the mechanical services design for the facility, Aurecon engineers used extensive computational fluid dynamics simulations to analyse various air conditioning concepts. The simulations gave a highly accurate selection of displacement ventilation system and high-level jet diffuser options and performance data, which was matched to the building design. A number of design considerations specifically aimed at minimising the energy consumption of the building were also modelled to deliver improved ecologically sustainable outcomes. Our global success stories
  19. 19. Nelson Marlborough Institute of Technology (NMIT) Arts and Media Building New Zealand Multiple award winner Award-winning solutions Institution of Structural Engineers UK, Structural Awards 2011 Category: Education of Healthcare Structures Property Council of New Zealand Awards 2011 Category: Education and Arts This unique building employs Low Damage Design to resist earthquakes, which is a world first for a timber building. This revolutionary earthquake technology has been developed by Aurecon’s structural engineers and is based on the latest timber research from the University of Canterbury. The building incorporates several new timber structural systems for floors, beams and columns, and truly demonstrates the possibilities for using structural timber in multi-storey construction.
  20. 20. Freedom Park Museum South Africa Winner Award-winning solutions South African Institute of Steel Construction Steel Awards 2010 Category: Architectural The museum forms part of the Freedom Park heritage development in Tshwane, South Africa, which serves as a centre of remembrance and aims to promote unity, peace and reconciliation in South Africa. It is designed as a group of asymmetrically shaped buildings on different levels. Aurecon provided an innovative structural steel solution to meet the major construction challenge posed by the architectural concept. The steelwork accommodated the large spans and high volumes required, while being constructed economically and within tight timeframes. The use of structural steel also made it possible to sculpt the complex shapes the architect required, which was not possible using other construction materials.
  21. 21. Nelson Mandela Bay Stadium South Africa Winner Award-winning solutions Consulting Engineers South Africa Glenrand MIB Engineering Excellence Awards 2010 Category: Soccer stadiums Aurecon was part of the structural design team consortium that created this magnificent sports stadium in Port Elizabeth, South Africa. The roof design, made to look like a flower with a series of white ‘petals’ has been described as an ‘engineering masterpiece’ by Consulting Engineers South Africa. Situated on the coast, wind comfort for spectators was a major consideration in the roof design and enclosed walkways were provided on the upper levels. The stadium features good sight lines and limited distances from the seating areas to the pitch.

The Sail @ Marina Bay Singapore Winner Award-winning solutions Building and Construction Authority Construction Excellence Award 2010 Category: Residential Buildings One of the tallest residential buildings in Singapore, The Sail @ Marina Bay consists of two towers of 70 storeys and 63 storeys. Performance glass façades were chosen to maximise views of the new downtown resort. The façade system design needed to achieve both functionality and constructability. As façade consultants, Aurecon’s solution was a curtain wall system that used a rotating sill trim to allow variation in the vertical tilt of the system, while also enabling manufacturing to be optimised.
  23. 23. Wembley Stadium United Kingdom Winner Award-winning solutions Engineers Australia, Engineering Excellence Awards 2008 Working as part of the Mott Stadium Consortium, Aurecon was engaged to undertake the structural engineering of the arch and roof, and provide advice on the initial concept design for electrical, vertical transportation and mechanical services. With its stunning arch visible from over 20 kilometres, Wembley Stadium stands as a landmark on London’s skyline. The unique toroidally-shaped rectangular roof, hung from a basket weave lattice arch with a span of 315 metres, is an innovative and structurally efficient solution. It provides coverage and unrestricted views for 90 000 spectators and ensures maximum sunlight on the pitch, using seven independently-driven retractable roof panels. Both fixed and retractable roof panels are supported by very slender and long-span bowstring cables up to 180 metres in length. These are stabilised by an elegant ‘double fish belly’ cable net, which casts minimal shadow on the pitch when the roof panels are open.Image © Nigel Young/Foster + Partners
