This presentation provided an overview of the materials selection, structural design, performance-based fire engineering approach, and construction of the structural frame of 8 Chifley. The presentation described the integrated design approach undertaken by the client, architect, design, and construction teams in order to successfully achieve a building of structural simplicity and fine detailing.

The presentation discussed the materials and techniques used to construct the exterior megacolumns and exterior bracing, including the unique articulated node. The methodologies for alleviating the need for fire protection, the jump-start transfer structures, typical floor plates, roof louver array, and frameless glass lobby enclosure were also discussed.
