Fabrication of the curving glass roof of the Chadstone shopping centre is no straightforward task.

The free-form steel and glass gridshell roof, a 7,080 sqm steel structure with 2,672 panes of insulating glass, flexes and moves during construction.

AAM, working hand-in-hand with Seele, a leading international glass and steel design firm, is responsible for the construction survey works, set out, as-built and monitoring of the roof structure.

AAM performs daily checks to ensure the live structure is behaving as predicted as tonnes of glass panels are inserted.

AAM's advanced structural monitoring systems continue to check the “dimensional control” of the massive steel and glass shell roof, ensuring it is being built in the right place and monitoring how much the steel frame moves as tonnes of glass panels are inserted.
