Project no. 6028
State Finalist: Engineering Excellence Awards 2013
Winner: AIA Project-of-the-Year, Darling Downs
Construction Budget: $4 million
The BE Collective Team was engaged to provide structural and civil engineering services for the construction of a new civic centre in Esk. The original heritage listed facility was unfortunately destroyed by fire. Our brief was to enable the space to be as flexible as possible to facilitate a variety of uses, including celebratory dinners, theatrical performances, art exhibitions and meetings.
The building form reflects the rural nature of the area, being a modern interpretation of an agricultural structure. Industrial structural steelwork is employed to provide the large spans, with particular attention paid to connection detailing in support of architectural intent.
