I think I just found out what I am looking for after spending a lot time surfing the net.The judges' view of the academy was that the structural form fits this extremely curvaceous building like a glove. Floors are exposed flat slabs, and the roof over the central concourse is an elegant steel grid-shell. Just right!

Buro Happold's Perth Concert Hall wins prestigious Building Services Award 

Perth Concert Hall has won Project of the Year at the International Building Services Awards 2007. International multi-disciplinary consulting engineer Buro Happold, which has offices in Glasgow and Edinburgh, scooped the accolade for providing the building services engineering for the contemporary concert hall and conference venue. Perth Concert Hall is an organic building consisting of a 1,200-seat concert hall that, through the clever use of retractable seating and moveable staging, can be transformed into a number of different modes from flat floor to theatre in the round. Perth Concert Hall incorporates key features to help achieve the design team’s aim to create a highly sustainable building, including exposed thermal mass, extensive use of natural ventilation and façade shading. Initial energy monitoring figures show that the building’s energy use is below the industry standard. Buro Happold also provided structural engineering, fire engineering and environmental simulation analysis for Perth Concert Hall. Perth Concert Hall was also the winner of the Regeneration Award in the British Construction Industry Awards 2006. BDP was Architect, Interior Designer and Acoustic Consultant.
