Inertia completed the structural and civil design for this two-storey post office. Our structural scope consisted of a value engineering assessment of the structure, schematic, preliminary and tender design documents as well as construction documentation and supervision. The civil scope included Preliminary and Construction Drawings as well as lodgement of water and sewer connections and operational works approvals.
Working closely with the designer and builder, the warehouse design had to account for large delivery vehicles and include the consideration of construction of a mezzanine level at a later stage. Inertia’s engineers were also able to reduce construction costs by rationalising the use of glass in the original concept design and assist with obtaining adjoining property owners consent to connect to existing stormwater infrastructure.
