Engineering features and challenges evident in the project are exposed Class 1 off-form concrete finishes; an aggressive exposure environment just 40m from breaking surf, large cantilevers with thin profiles, slender supports, highly bespoke concrete detailing, recesses for architectural features; and an exceptional curved concrete shell "column" that was matched to adjacent curved brickwork shells and worked as a strut-and-tie beam.
