PROJECT SNAPSHOT

This prominent 2200m², 4-storey multipurpose development saw PACT again successfully partner with Aria Projects while embarking on a first-time collaboration with property developers FJM Property and architectural firm Taylor Robinson. Our team won the project via a competitive tender process.

Major features include a 2-level basement car park, ground floor retail areas, two storeys of corporate office space and top floor apartments.

OVERCOMING CHALLENGES

  • Halfway through construction, the client changed Level 3 from residential to a mix of commercial and residential, resulting in a host of challenges that our team had to overcome, from services design input to architectural and structural changes.
  • The site’s busy location on the corner of Barker Road and Rowland Street also required careful navigation. All crane lifts and deliveries had to be very well coordinated and on most occasions involved road closures, requiring all permits and traffic management to be arranged prior to lifting.

HIGHLIGHTS

  • The striking structure, with its attractive combination facade of glazing, render, brickwork and cladding, gives no hint of the intrinsic build process that took place behind the scenes.

FEATURES OF DEVELOPMENT

The building was constructed utilising the AFS wall system; a modular building system consisting of concrete core filled sandwich panels lined with fibre cement sheets, partnered with a conventional concrete and structural steel structure.

To realise the potential of every person and every project.
