Refurbished industrial shed

Project details

  • Location: St Marys, NSW
  • Client: BDA (Builder)
  • Project Challenge: Renovation of existing single storey brick industrial shed into two storey height extension

The builder’s client wished to keep the existing masonry walls of this building and add another storey of height. On inspection it was apparent that although structurally adequate to act as single storey walls, the existing brickwork would need strengthening to have the capacity to support the weight and wind loading from the proposed extension. Ascent’s structural design incorporated an unusual combination of existing masonry walls, new steel portal frames and engineered timber roof members.
