Innovation in steel

Case Study on Australia’s first steel high-rise residential tower 80 Arthur Street, North Sydney

This 30 storey residential tower developed by the Meriton Group is a first for Australian high-rise apartment buildings. It incorporates many new design and construction concepts.

Comprised of an innovative steel-framed structural system utilising universal column sections as primary beams supporting deep trapezoidal floor decking in the secondary direction, the building houses 218 serviced apartments and a modern retail space.This design allowed a structural floor depth of 290mm to be achieved whilst maintaining the 3050mm floor to floor height originally intended for a concrete-framed building.

Key areas to be covered in the presentation include:

  • Cost competitiveness against other building materials
  • The structural solution – light weight, minimal depth, construction speed
  • Benefits of off-site fabrication
  • Achievement of Fire and Acoustic requirements

Schedule: Registrations 5.30 pm for 6.00pm start to 7.45pm finish

Refreshments are included. Join us for drinks and networking following the presentation.
