Handover of Boronggook Drysdale Library

14 April 2023

Another successful handover for Argall

Working with The City of Greater Geelong Council, Argall has engineered the construction a new regional community and learning hub in the town center of Drysdale, which is known as the Boronggook Drysdale Library.

To reflect the community values the design had a strong focus on sustainability. The team succeeded in incorporating environmental aspects into the design while using sustainable low maintenance, yet robust material to future-proof the building for many generations.

Embodying more amazing architecture and sustainable design, it was a pleasure for Argall to be part of this project. More information on the Boronggook Drysdale Library can be found here on our projects page.


Argall was founded in 2017 by Andrew Gall, an engineer with a passion for complex design and breaking the mould. His work experience as a senior structural engineer across a variety of project disciplines made him realise there was a real need for a bespoke people and service-oriented structural engineering consultancy that would inspire sustainability practices and innovation often lacking in big companies.

This is over and above his experience in traditional procurement roles, his work with builders in the design and construct field, managing projects in sport, tertiary education, the arts and zoological fields, as well as community, commercial, residential and multi- residential enterprises. With such a wealth of knowledge and understanding of different design methodologies, he has the expertise to challenge the status quo in his new venture.
