The Bastion Project

Project: The Bastion Project

Site: The Bastion, Castlecrag NSW

Architect: CastlePeake

Engineer:  Hyve Designs

Builder:  Parkzip Constructions

Budget:  $100k +

Tonnage:  7T

Installation:  MAM Engineering

Overview:    MAM Engineering has had a long, successful history with both the architect and builder. Prior experience ensured MAM was entrusted with the shop drawings and fabrication. The shop drawing process was an arduous task due to the complicated connection details necessary to execute the beautiful design by Castlepeake. The fabrication involved a complex ‘twisted steel’ layout.

Fabrication started in April 2022 and installation of the main roof was completed mid-May.

Residential – Steel House Grays Point

Project: Residential – Steel House Grays Point.

Site: Grays Point Rd, Grays Point.

Client: Private

Budget: $200k +

Tonnage: 15T

Installation: MAM Engineering

Overview: This project commenced in 2019 when MAM Engineering were commissioned to supply the 3D modelling and shop drawings by the client. Due to the difficult site progress was slow and required the garage slab to be built first for our crane to be suitably positioned.

Due to the proximity of the location to water, all materials were required to be Hot dipped Galvanised (HDG) to adequately protect the steel from the corrosive environment for the life of the home. This is a costly process but will give the steel the 50+ years of service as required.

Fabrication started in February 2022 and installation of the first floor in May. Progress is quick when possible but major rain delays have impacted progress. Here are some progress photo’s.

Commercial – Georges River Council

Year: 2020 – 2021
Location: Georges River Council (Oatley Park & Edgbaston Park)
Materials: Hot Dipped Galvanised Steel
Project Duration (3D modelling, Fabrication & Installation): Approx. 7 weeks

 

Over the last two year, upgrades to local council amenities in the Georges River Council has seen many new facilities utilising structural steel portal frames.

MAM Engineering has been involved in the supply and installation of multiple buildings via different buildings companies. The entirety of both projects has been 3D modelled internally with approval by the clients prior to the fabrication process. This modelling process takes approximately 2-3 weeks and an additional 2-3 weeks for fabrication and galvanising. For the portals sized as pictured, the installation time was 1 week.

Commercial – Highland Property Agents Cronulla, Office

Year: 2021
Location: Highland Property Agents Cronulla, Office
Materials: Raw/untreated Steel
Project Duration (fabrication & Installation): 2 days
Builder: MAC Developments

The architect firm- Innovate, were after a ‘rustic’ look partition made from steel and coated clear to frame the two meeting rooms in their revamped office. The slimline sliding door setup was achieved using the Brio Zero track and accessories.

Commercial – Beaconsfield

Year: 2020
Location: Beaconsfield, Sydney
Materials: Structural Steel
Project Duration (3D modelling, fabrication & Installation): 4 weeks,

The structure is made from a series of 380 PFCs and 310UC158 beams attached to two concrete columns, and a slab edge creating an additional 140m 2 of floating office space. The concrete columns were scanned to ensure that none of the proposed structural bolts would interfere with the reinforcement and undermine their integrity.

Industrial Peakhurst

Year: 2021
Location: Peakhurst
Materials: 460UB82.1 beams, Roof area 732m 2
Project Duration (3D modelling, Fabrication & Installation): Approx. 6 weeks
Builder: Consulted Projects

This roof structure is for an industrial building located in Sydney’s southwest.It required a clear span to provide unhindered floor space for the proposed gym site. The 24-metre beams were pre-cambered and joined onsite to achieve the open space. This process also made the project more economical in regards to delivery and installation on site. The installation site was located on the first floor. The materials were required to be lifted to the slab, manoeuvred into position and then lifted with a crawler crane. The method was utilised to avoid the high voltage powerlines located along the properties perimeter.

Architectural Mosman

Year: 2021
Location: Mosman, NSW
Architect: Collins & Turner Architects
Materials: Aluminium
Project Duration (Fabrication , Design & Installation): Approx. 6 months

Affectionately known as the ‘Screen House’, locals have come to admire and are intrigued by the simplicity and volume of the screens covering this home. The owners of the house approached MAM Engineering P/L directly after no other contractor would deal with both the screen and the balustrade framing together. Privacy screens were mandatory for this home. The owner’s brief was to minimise the framing supporting the screens and balustrade as to not completely block their views of the water. Additionally, the owner ask that the screen would have a minimal look and act as a balustrade in certain areas. Minimal in detail but extremely difficult to execute, MAM Engineering P/L had the building 3D scanned and modelled internally to control the tolerance and ensure the finished product aligned over the three floors. The framing and screens are made from aluminium. Each panel has been laser cut and folded with over 400 slotted holes each. There are a total of 384 screens that encompass the three levels.

Residential Tamarama

Year: 2021
Location: Tamarama
Materials: 16mm mild steel plate
Project Duration (3D modelling, Fabrication & Installation): Approx 12 weeks
Architect: ROAR

This was a difficult and testing project.This required the installation of over 9 tonnes of 16mm plate into a house that was near completion. The client commissioned MAM Engineering directly. This was due to the previous contractor abandoning the project after realising the complexity of the balustrade. The plates are set 10mm off the side of the gyprock covering the stairs. The detail is to create the illusion of the panels being independent of the stairs and hence floating adjacent to the structure. The completed concrete stair was 3D scanned and modelled internally to focus on critical junctions and consistent shadow lines to gyprock finishes.
