Sylvan Avenue Auckland

Sylvan Avenue, Northcote, Auckland 

Project Background

High end architecturally crafted new build residential property over extensive piling system, on difficult geotechnical site.

The site was located on a steep slope on the side of a volcanic crater. Geotechnical requirements included palisade walls and piles extending to a minimum of 4.5m, while the superstructure included large, clear span portals to provide the architect’s large open communal space areas.


Solutions Provided

Stroude acted as design engineer and main point of contact for the architect and client. The design incorporated an extensive stability system incorporating various combinations of large clear span portals, standard panel bracing and vertical reid bar cross bracing.

We used REVIT to document our design and assist with architectural changes after successfully bidding for the job.
