Toyota Australian Head Office
Toyota Motor Company (TMC)
Port Melbourne, Victoria, Australia
Calibre provided the structural design for the Toyota Australian Head Office, a striking open plan office space with minimum columns. Maximum natural lighting is provided through full length perimeter glazing and no bracing bays.
The structure boasts a large column-free auditorium, which was made possible through 16m continuous composite steel transfer beams over the supporting columns.
The building is a continuous composite steel construction with full height columns, minimised steel tonnage and structure height with pin-ended arch atrium structure to create a slender and elegant facade.
We used rigorous three dimensional dynamic analysis to carry out the design. This comprehensive and efficient method enabled construction to be completed ahead of time and event-free.
