Architect: Therien Pty Ltd
Year: 2017
Project Value: $2M

The Project:
Therian Architects and the owners took on an ambitious project to convert this warehouse building into a modern veterinary practice. The location of the warehouse, was on one of Alexandria’s busiest roads. Our structural team was engaged to complete the structural design of a new mezzanine floor, lift shaft, additional floor strengthening and a new car park, with the hydraulic team providing the stormwater management plan and public domain upgrade.

Core was engaged as the lead structural and hydraulic engineer to provide services to the owner. The brief was to transform a tired, existing structure to the specific requirements of the client. Our team provided structural engineering services on:
- Replacing the concrete driveway and parking area
- Structural engineering of the internal fit out 

Our Process:
Clever design and use of materials for this project resulted in cost savings for the client. Our engineers challenged the council requirements and designed a stormwater system exceeding the requirements which saved the client thousands of dollars. To manage a project of this scale, it is important to take a holistic approach on desired outcomes, cost and time frames. Core ensured that the quality and timeliness of our advice was meticulous to ensure that the client received the best possible end result.

The Outcome:
This case is a great example of two engineering disciplines working together to achieve a great result for our client. It proves we provide outside the box solutions and challenge the norm. We work for our clients to save them money and achieve great results.

With the architect’s interstate, we demonstrated our strength in communication, keeping them abreast of the project progress at all times. The client was delighted with the result and the quality of the finished product combined with the visibility of the site which enhanced the business appearance.
