Wiley in-house design specialists provided an alternative, environmentally sustainable and cost-saving design solution during the
tender stage; ensuring minimal disruption to operations during the construction phase and ease of maintenance in the long term. This design solution differed from the conforming bid by:
Running services aerially, rather than in trenches
Building roof access to the canopies via new bridges spanning from the existing building—replacing the vertical ladder access to each canopy in the conforming tender.
A parapet design that complements the existing market facility, in place of Monowills handrail system.
The brownfield project includes:
Six structural steel canopies spanning 2.2 hectares
4,332 solar panels generating 1.95-megawatt power to support
onsite energy requirements
8,200,000 litres of rainwater catchment capacity per year
