Feature Project

Penleigh & Essendon Grammar Junior Boys School

Hive Engineering was engaged to provided Structural and Civil Engineering for an architectural complex building at Penleigh and Essendon Grammar Schools Junior Boys Campus.

The building is formed by extruding a silhouette of a house along a 50m length.Within this shape are two floors containing new classrooms and teaching spaces.

Hive utilised a highly detailed an accurate model to engineer this building using composite construction and steel and timber. The detailed model also included the external areas and civil works.

Feature Project

Melbourne Clinic Hospital Extension

Hive Engineering provided Civil and Structural Design services on the extension to a mental health facility in Richmond. The project budget was approximately $12M and encorporated a new multistorey carpark and new wing of wards. The structural design included both fully post tensioned slabs and traditional reinforced concrete slabs.

Feature Project
