Structural engineers work collaboratively with a professional design team to deliver the vision of clients and architects. Many challenges arise along the process of project delivery, varying from concept to design to site-related. In this talk, specific design challenges will be discussed related to several projects, including long-span timber floor systems, folded plate timber roofs and an upside down car art installation. The importance of carrying out research to inform the design philosophy will also be addressed.

This talk is part of the Engineering Department Structures Research Seminars series.
