Westlake House Extension Photos

Cornell Engineers proudly provided the structural engineering and design certification for this fabulous house extension and renovation project overlooking the magnificent Brisbane river in Westlake.

We collaborated with builder CBA Building and architect Steve Drake Architect to bring this project to fruition.

The house renovation and extension is constructed on a steeply sloping site and adjacent to an existing swimming pool and overlooking the mighty Brisbane River.

The design overcame (and adapted to) the site constraints of large trees and tricky ground. Large concrete masonry piers fortify the patio extension and a framed timber floor and roof. Mass concrete piers pinned into the earth ensure this extension is  firmly grounded.

The new deck and patio extension capture the vibe of the river and bring the river life into the house.

During construction, Cornell Engineers also provided construction phase site inspections and finalised the job with a Form 16 inspection certificate.

We’d like to congratulate the owners of this beautiful building extension and thank them for choosing Cornell Engineers to be their Brisbane Structural Engineer.
