Miesian Plaza – Structural Alterations

May 16, 2016

Video of structural alterations at Miesian Plaza which involved the removal of central columns and internal load bearing walls from roof level down to foundation, which support a total of 11 number floors.

Our enabling works designer, J.J. Campbell and Associates, designed a temporary steel braced frame solution that offered lateral stability while giving vertical support in lieu of the original columns and wall. The Induced pre-dead load into the temporary steel frame was via pre-tensioned hanging vertical bars.
