Hirt & Carter
Hirt and Carter is a 40 000m2 Print Park & Office Block - Part of the facility consists of large temperature-controlled printing rooms, in which heavy-duty printing presses (lithographic, silk screening, digital printing, and so forth) run non-stop. The base for these machines is 20 metres long, and two metres wide, and finished within tolerance of four millimetres from end-to-end.
The intricate details on the office block structure are a unique and complex element that has provided some challenges in construction. There are six pods and the main entrance that house meeting rooms and boardrooms, and protrudes from the front façade of the building. These are independent concrete structures, and the only spaces in the office buildings that have received ceilings. All other areas are exposed concrete soffits.
