The Indian Ocean Suites development is a landmark multi residential development for the Port Hedland region. With seven multi-storey apartments up to five storeys high, the development required an in depth analysis for stability under cyclonic and earthquake conditions. 

The site includes a 4,000m2 basement car park, which required innovative solutions to control stormwater drainage and flood analysis to provide protection in case of storm events. 

The regional location meant that a number of precast and prefabricated elements were used to minimise cost and maximise construction speed.
