Learn about innovations in long span design and construction and how these can be applied to projects of any scale.

Structural engineers are continually pushing boundaries to innovate long span structures. As roofs become lighter and spans become longer, engineers must further understand the dynamics involved to achieve the desired outcomes. Attendee experience is playing a crucial role in these advances, meaning engineers must design beyond the structure to ensure it is inclusive for all.

The online conference, spread across three consecutive afternoons, will cover aspects of innovative design, temporary structures, and sustainable future design. Using examples of major international tournaments and award-winning projects, speakers and panels will provide insight into the holistic approach of design and construction.
 

Learning outcomes

  • Discover the latest advances in long span structure design
  • Hear case studies from major international tournaments
  • Discuss how current codes and standards impact cutting-edge design
  • Get guidance on the procurement, design and use of temporary and demountable and stadia and venues
  • Learn how to improve construction productivity and efficiency
  • Find out about advances in sustainability and repurposing in response to the climate emergency
  • Understand how the lessons learnt from these complex structures can be applied to projects of any scale
 

Intended for

The conference for engineers of all levels. The examples from stadia and large-scale stadia projects will design principles to any project.
 

Key speakers

Knut Göppert

Partner, schlaich bergermann partner
Knut has been responsible for numerous realized stadium projects so far, including stadiums for the Football World Cups in Brazil, South Korea, Germany and South Africa as well as sports venues for the 2012 Olympic Games in London. He has won significant awards for projects consisting of lightweight structures, buidling membranes, and retractable roofs.

Mark Sheldon

Technical Director, Aurecon Australasia
Based in Aurecon’s Melbourne office, Mark has spent much of the last 25 years designing stadia throughout Asia. His award-winning projects include the home of cricket in Australia (the 100,000 seat MCG), and Wembley Stadium’s operable roof. He lists a career highlight as watching Marvel Stadium’s roof panel sections 168m long x 26m wide being fabricated on the ground then hoisted and rolled into position.
