KOA Wellington Engineering Manager, Ander Pontesta’s technical skills and over 10 years of experience in concrete and steel structures were an advantage in the initial detailing of the design for the project.
KOA Shop Drawing Manager, Brendon Schaare, then detailed the project from Ander’s design, within the Tekla Structure software. The Micrographics project utilised one model for the supply of detailed structural drawings, structural steel shop drawings and precast concrete shop drawings.
The project consisted of two levels of office space of approximately 1500m2 and a warehouse of approximately 460m2. There was 67.2 tonnes of structural steel and purlins, with 53 precast panels weighing approximately 332 tonnes.
