Melbourne residents, along with all other Australians, have been battling an extreme heatwave. On January 6, temperatures soared to an astounding 41.6C in Melbourne, which was the hottest the area has been in two years. Although this type of weather makes it uncomfortable to be outside, the right home design will alleviate or at least will reduce much of the discomfort associated with unusually high temperatures.
A team of experienced architects and structural engineers can create the home design that ensures your inner air quality doesn’t suffer during a heatwave. For example, passive cooling and thermal mass are often used together to naturally reduce indoor heat absorption.
On New Year’s Eve, everyone celebrates as the ball drops, signifying the start of a new year. The beautiful design of the ball is captivating, and its precision timing makes sure everything happens exactly when it should.
This same concept is true for building engineering. But instead of dropping a ball, structural engineers create the perfect blueprint for success. This ensures a home that has the stability you need to be happy and comfortable in your living environment throughout the New Year.
Many Australians will be looking for a fresh start on January 1, 2018.
Many families throughout Australia, and the world, will be coming together this year to celebrate Christmas. Of course, in Australia, we do things a little differently. Children are already on holiday from school, making the Christmas season the perfect time to travel. Whether your tradition involves gathering at your home or taking a holiday camping trip, the most important part of Christmas is spending it with your family.
If you want to host the perfect holiday get-togethers, it’s vital to have the right amount of space. Keep in mind that two homes could both be 231 square metres,
The design and construction of a beehive is one of nature’s most beautiful elements. Behind the brilliance of these pieces of habitable art is one central tenant: They must fulfill the needs of the entire colony. In other words, the worker bees must carefully consider how to plan their beehive, or town, to ensure that everyone has a safe and suitable living environment.
Everything about the hive’s construction influences the lives of tens of thousands of bees. Worker bees have many factors to consider, including location, access to food, security, building the honeycomb, proper storage of pollen and nectar,
Ants aren’t desirable in the home, but they can certainly teach us a lot about how to design a house that’s fully efficient. In fact, these creatures work in tandem to serve the needs of their entire community. One of their top tasks? Building an ant colony that is structurally sound. At the same time, ants highly value efficiency.
Ants are well-known for their strength. In fact, they can carry up to 50 times their body weight! This helps them carve out a tunnel network containing the shortest possible distances between point A and point B.
Seasons really matter where the question of structural engineering rises. Every season has its specific beauty but spring is the metaphor of reconstruction, happiness, and new life.
Designers think of new designs, planners think of new plans , civil engineers get new inspiration from the blooming surroundings where birds chirp, nature sings, and greenery dances with the air.
Newly-completed projects enhance the beauty of nature and the joy of the residents of these homes. Melbourne Consultants feel the pride of being in harmony of the nature and human hearts both.
Every project that we do adds real value to our portfolio in this season.
Nature is just amazing. So are the patterns of the nests built by the birds across the globe. There is a lot of variety in their nests and styles according to their particular needs, sizes, region, climate, and natural phenomenon around them. It is not only surprising but impressive too to find how intricately they weave the building stuff. A nest is a bowl-shaped collection of weeds, straws, leaves, twigs, and other building material. Right? Maybe. It is not that simple. A nest is the lesson of structural engineering that offers further breakdown in shapes, locations, and sizes.
