Value Engineering Solution
  • Precast concrete floor system aided construction time and construction cost.
Unique Design Items
  • Load bearing brick, precast concrete floors.
  • Near coastal durability.
  • Maintained use of the existing concrete grain silos.

This mixed multi-storey resort complex consists of both retail and residential accommodation together with underground parking.

Built under a design and construct contract the project utilises precast tilt up retaining walls and a precast suspended flooring system supported on load bearing brickwork to the upper floors. Located directly on the waterfront due consideration was given in the design and specification of concrete elements and exposed structural steel elements built into brickwork to ensure durability.

Speed of construction and cost efficiency were key aspects that determined the correct structural solution for this project.
