On the 22 September 2007, a fire broke out in the Myer store in the centre of the Hobart CBD, which eventually destroyed the complete Liverpool Street section of the building and, at one stage, threatened the rest of the CBD. JMG was called in during the fire to assess the structural stability of building elements ensuring the overall safety of fire crews.
Marine and Safety Tasmania funded the demolition and re-construction of parts of the public jetty at Dover. The jetty, which is very popular with local fishermen and tourists, has reached the end of its design life. JMG were engaged as engineering design consultants and project managers.
JMG investigated the feasibility of expanding the capacity of a major inner city car park by constructing new decks on top of the existing facility. This project required substantial amounts of investigative work, leading our client, Hobart City Council, into making financial decisions based on engineering inputs.
In 2006 the University of Tasmania initiated a major upgrade of its Cradle Coast campus by expanding the existing facilities to include two new buildings. JMG were engaged to provide structural, civil, hydraulic, mechanical and electrical design services.
The expansion of the St Michael's Collegiate Middle School on their existing site required innovative architecture and engineering to produce a state of the art modern school facility. JMG provided Structural, Electrical, Data, Security, Fire detection, Hydraulic and Mechanical engineering services.
