Studco top hat sections support the curved façade of the building.

With a growing population in the Northern District area, the new primary school will consist of 43 learning spaces for 1000 students and 70 staff. The three-storey circular design, by Conrad Gargett Architects, wraps around a central courtyard at the heart of the school campus, to encourage student curiosity and collaboration.

Richard Crookes Construction engaged Studco Building Systems® to design and supply external framing solutions that would support the buildings continuous arc shape and façade cladding.

The construction of the school’s curved external walls posed significant challenges for the contractors and Studco’s engineering team; resolved through collaborative designs and engineered solutions. The designs ensured a structurally sound external frame, using Studco’s structural stud and track and top hat sections, without overcomplicating the installation process for the installers on site.

Studco takes pride in working closely with clients to provide effective solutions for external framing. Get in touch with Studco’s Sydney engineers to find out how we can make a difference to your next project on 1300 255 255.
