Office Relocation – Toowoomba

We’re keen to announce the relocation of BE Collective’s office in Toowoomba.

We couldn’t be more pleased to be bunking alongside award winning local design firm Alisco Designs. The office space is just south of the CBD, and promises to improve our productivity and reach in the Toowoomba region.

With this new bolstered interest we are keenly looking for opportunities in the area, do you know of anyone who might be interested?

Touch base with the Toowoomba office here.

BE Collective Noosa Retreat – Christmas 2016

It’s the most wonderful time of the year – and perhaps the busiest.

But that didn’t stop the BE Collective Brisbane team from downing tools, donning our recreational attire and heading up to Noosa North-Shore for a few nights.

Our haunt of choice is Beach Road Holiday Homes, which boasts a collection of architecturally inspired homes, designed by some rather big names (including our friends at John Cameron Architects).

Thursday, Friday and Saturday were packed with barbecue, drinks, beach cricket – even a rerun of Fast and the Furious, Tokyo Drift.

Rest assured – it’s now all hands on deck up until the 19th, when our office closes for Christmas break.

Structural Use of Bamboo Series – The Structural Engineer

img_3005Those with access to the Institute of Structural Engineers’ (ISE) primary publication; The Structural Engineer, have been treated to a 5 part feature series which aims to summarise current knowledge and best practice on the structural use of bamboo.

The in-depth technical articles will be covering bamboo introductory information, durability and preservation, design values, element design equations, and connections.

The BEC Team have just finished with Octobers’ edition, which covered the various bugs, fungi and termite attacks to which bamboo is particularly prone. Keeping bamboo off the ground and dry appears to be the best way to preserve it pre-installation, and once installed treatment with boron (for internal applications) or modern copper based wood preservatives (for exterior applications) are the best methods of preventing damage and decay.

Those interested can purchase the magazine online here, otherwise swing by our office for a coffee and take a peek at ours!
