Deniz Subasi contacted Solution for Construction, seeking structural design experts for his trailer-mounted home project. He had purchased a mobile home on a trailer from the United States.
This meant, his new ‘home’ was produced and designed to American standards. It was our Structural Engineers’ job to modify it to comply with Australian regulations… while also making it as lightweight and cost-effective as possible.
Our role included structural design, drafting, quantity estimation, project management support and cost control. However, our key purpose was providing structural advice.
The entire project included the following structural engineering analysis:
Solution for Construction implemented a combination of steel and timber framework. As a result, Deniz now has a compact two-person home on wheels – comprising a bedroom, kitchen, living area, laundry and toilet.
This project is a great example of a client who purchased a mobile home design he loved, then having a team of engineers adjust it according to local rules and regulations.
The estimated build value for this project was $50,000 [Contact a builder or fabricator for more precise pricing].
