The RMIT Garden Building*

The RMIT Garden Building is a 4-storey multi-purpose greenspace in the Central Business District campus of RMIT University in Melbourne. The primary structure consists of square glulam columns and long primary glulam beams. Spanning between the primary beams are long TCC panels with glulam beams and concrete topping. A 3D structural analysis of the lateral load resisting system including a combination of glulam bracing and a masonry core was performed to ensure all elements were detailed effectively to resist the lateral loads.
