Highlights from the 2021 online conference: 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 three keynote presentations from the Stadia and long span structures conference 2021 are now available to view on-demand:

  • Innovations in long span structures - Mark Sheldon, Technical Director - Aurecon Australia
  • The engineer’s influence on long span structures - Hugh Pidduck, Associate Structural Engineer - Arup, Giancarlo Torpiano - Senior Structural Engineer - Arup & Will Whitby - Lead Structural Engineer - Arup
  • Designing for flexibility and multi-use / Lifespan extension of existing structures - Peter Chipchase, Director - WSP
