IronAsh columns support the Macquarie University Incubator building

Australian Sustainable Hardwoods

Macquarie University’s Incubator building represents education, technology and innovation. This building may not be the tallest or largest mass timber structure in Australia, but should be equally celebrated for its total commitment to prefabricated timber. The Macquarie University Incubator was a collaboration between Lipman, Architectus, Strongbuild, Taylor Thompson Whitting, Arup and Against the Grain. The design required a prefabricated structure, to enable future dismantle, relocation and reassembly. Through the unique collaboration of the entire team the building was erected in just 37 days and the entire project completed within 6 months.

Wapping Wharf

Artform Urban Furniture Limited

Artform were approached by Gillespies to explore some ideas for using bespoke granite blocks on this new development at Wapping Wharf. Communication & coordination were key to making sure that the bespoke granite blocks were the precise measurements required for the lighting columns to be fitted correctly. The advice and experience provided by Artform helped to solve problems that other suppliers were unwilling to address or tackle. The particular aspect of this project that was most innovative was utilising the granite block for the functional purpose of a foundation for the lighting column, but in a decorative manner.

Montparnasse Tower, Paris

Guthrie Douglas

Currently the European Union’s 14th tallest building, it offers views that extend 40km across Paris from its viewing terrace on the top floor. Design challenges included high wind speeds and a requirement for no columns to be installed, in order to preserve the exceptional 360 degree views. Guthrie Douglas TESS™ 512 systems were installed, suspended on steel support cables, providing a vast, column-free, floating canopy. Steel rods were incorporated within the fabric panels to meet the wind resistance requirements, and wind sensors applied to automatically retract the shades in extreme conditions.

76-88 Wardour Street, London

AET Flexible Space

In particularly shallow areas where the floor void was less than 200mm, the latest TUS-EC slimline Fantile units were installed allowing a minimum floor to ceiling height of 2.6 m to be maintained on all five office floors.

Bollard sleeves for Bomber Command Memorial, London

Furnitubes International Ltd

As part of recent paving improvement works the bollards have been upgraded to high security versions, but these plain steel sections alone would be out of keeping with the memorial. The solution was to cover the steel cores with decorative sleeves, designed to complement the Doric-style fluted columns. Furnitubes developed a 3d digital model of the bollard sleeve, from which a new pattern was created to cast the sleeves in aluminum, which is a light enough material to make lifting over the steel posts easier, and with the benefit of having an appearance very similar to other traditional cast iron products.


TRC Restoration

With its legendary address and bold ionic columns, the Grade II-listed Selfridges building on Oxford Street has been a British institution since its doors first opened in 1909. Designed by American architect Daniel Burnham, its traditional external styling hides a more modern steel structure. When a new restaurant was planned, some of the building’s famous bronze-framed windows – some as tall as 8m - needed to be restored and adapted. With our specialist expertise, construction managers Sir Robert McAlpine commissioned TRC to undertake the 6-week contract.

005. Salesforce Transit Center, San Francisco

It involves horizontal fire-rated glass, structural glass, and spacers with air-gaps to avoid replacing glass due to dirt and condensation issues that would develop with foot traffic and the outdoor environment.
