Shellharbour Civic Centre

Client: Shellharbour City Council
Architect: DesignInc / Lacoste
Status: Complete

enstruct were structural & civil engineers for Shellharbour's Civic Centre; a 17,000sqm mixed use civic development. Community facilities include a library, museum, auditorium, meeting rooms, Council chambers, offices, a civic square and car parking.

A central design consideration was stormwater management as the development is located adjacent to a creek and connecting undersized drainage infrastructure. Hydraulic modelling together with enstruct's innovative thinking allowed environmentally sustainable design solutions to be integrated into the landscaping. Another key challenge was the structural design of the complex 'wave roof' geometry atop the library which is a core architectural feature.
