Jensen Hunt are providing structural and civil engineering design services for the conversion and extension of an existing Victorian school and the construction of an adjacent new build block of residential apartments.
The new build apartments utilise off-site fabrication panels designed by JHD taking the form of timber wall and floor cassettes. A glass walkway links the new and existing buildings.
The floor levels in the existing school building has been altered to increase the number of floors whilst enabling natural light from the existing windows. The existing roof trusses have also been moodier to maximise floor area.
