The ASI has organised a second presentation for Wednesday, 14 May with key players on the iconic new Macquarie Bank building being developed at Sydney’s King Street Wharf business precinct, due to record numbers booking for the event.

The unique external steel diagonal grid that is to support the building has drawn special interest from industry. Over 200 people registered for the first evening, almost 100 on the first day of bookings; being the biggest response to any of the ASI-sponsored high steel case study events organised to date. “Interest is certainly mounting in these events we organise, to convey why structural steel is deployed for these types of multi-level developments and we are currently planning even more to cater for the demand,” ASI National Marketing Manager, David Ryan said. “The Kings Street Wharf building presentation will offer an insider’s vantage on how the structure was created by a truly world class team through inventive design and engineering to overcome significant foundation and basement issues”

Speakers at the event will be James Fitzpatrick from architects, fitzpatrick+partners; Tristram Carfrae from structural engineers, Arup; Pat Murphy from builders, Brookfield Multiplex; and Brent Poll from Lysaghts D&C who leads the frame construction team. Bookings for the second presentation close on 7 May, or when full.
