Techlam worked with Henderson Construction right from the beginning to ensure a coordinated modelling and delivery process was achieved.
Sustainability was the key focus of the project. All timber was FSC certified, and the site had strict rules on materials and wastage.
Government funding for the project specified firm completion dates, and the sketchy supply environment at the time added an extra layer of challenges to the mix. So more than ever, working closely with the construction and design teams was vital to ensure we would deliver the project on time.
The Techlam Solution
Techlam collaborated closely with Beca, the engineers, as the modelling was complex and many of the parts of the structure didn’t fit together. We reviewed their modelling and helped them fine tune and refine the designs to make them work. Techlam advised pre-start meetings with Henderson Construction to rehearse the construction sequencing – the best way to lift and stand the portals, how and where to erect the structure. Henderson had experienced big supply issues with steel and other suppliers, so we flexed and adapted our manufacturing schedule to suit the changing game plan.
Techlam's team is a mix of diverse cultural backgrounds which helps us understand and embrace different cultural perspectives, ultimately adding value and meaning to the mahi we do.
