This project included integrating and constructing both the award-winning Ian Potter Gallery and Art Conservation Centre buildings into one.

Sensitive integration was required to bring these two iconic buildings together. Our team developed a number of specialised details for the museum precast wall components so that a number of panels would simultaneously act as beams, walls and torsional elements to provide structural support to the floating facade and floors.
