description

This 110 unit residential development project consists of 3 buildings varying from 7-8 levels with a large podium and two basement car park levels connecting the buildings.

The vertical structure included a combination reinforced AFS Rediwall, Precast, and insitu concrete walls providing the lateral resistance to earthquake and wind loading.

A tank basement structure was required due to the ground water table, consisting of a post-tensioned hydrostatic slab and perimeter sheet pile retention wall.

Post tension slabs where utilised for the floor systems allowing large spans to the units and cater for the large cantilevered balconies.
