National Museum Bike Storage facility

Project details

  • Location: Canberra, ACT
  • Client: Bike Storage (Builder)
  • Project Challenge: Structural design of an unusual bike storage facility with multi-faceted mirrored faced.

The Australian National Museum is an unusual building so it is not surprising that when they decided to add a bike storage facility it was not going to be straight forward. The architect’s design was for a mirrored stainless steel front wall with various angles that culminated in a cantilevered roof area at one end. Ascent’s engineer collaborated closely with the builder to develop a design and construction methodology that allowed for this seemingly complex project to be delivered efficiently – on time and on budget.
