Pymble Ladies College, NSW

#The Pymble ladies college located near the upper north shores of Sydney, NSW, is now home to the state-of-the-art Pymble indoor aquatic centre which offers the ladies college & general public access to a wide range of activities & services.

The Indoor Aquatic Centre was designed to replace the outdated outdoor pool with a 50m x 8 lane pool 2m to 3.7m deep and movable boom swimming facility. The Indoor pool includes 1m, 3m, & 5m platform diving facilities & a Learner’s pool open to the public which is suspended over manicured plant rooms, blurring the lines between the exterior landscape & interiority of the newly designed space.

Palmview Schools

#Project No: 7086

BE Collective were pleased to work with James Cubitt Architects (JCA) on the Palmview Schools project. The DoE commission was for the development of three new schools on a greenfield site. We delivered a coordinated multi-discipline service offering including Structural, Civil, Hydraulic (including Wet Fire), and Section J Energy Efficiency.

Our team was involved from the master planning phase, through concept, schematic, and detailed design for the new State School, Special School and State Secondary School (with a combined functional space of 18,000m2).

The scale and complexity of the project, combined with its proximity to protected wetlands proved to make the time-sensitive project a challenge. We worked closely with the Client, JCA, Cadence and  Place Design Group’s Landscape team, to ensure an optimal result. A concerted multi-discipline approach facilitated a smooth delivery & a project we’re proud of.

PNGFP Timber Bridges Design Review & Certification

#Project no. 6887

BEC was engaged by PNG Forest Products Limited (PNGFP) to urgently provide Structural Design review, certification, and documentation for three timber bridges in Papua New Guinea.

The bridges were constructed from plywood decks with LVL girders. Our review was specific to the structure strength, durability, serviceability & connections with reference to current versions of the nominated standards.

This project is one of many that helps the team at BEC hone in on their multinational design & documentation expertise, and we are proud to have worked with PNGFP on this. 

FiCK Brewing

Project no. 7188

The BE Collective team is excited to have worked on yet another brewery project.

Recently featured in The Crafty Pint, our Client, FiCK Brewing Company has converted an existing raised character building in Brisbane’s Northgate into a glossy new bar & kitchen, complete with onsite micro-brewery. BEC were called in to provide Civil pavement & QUU Endorsed consultancy in support of the unexpected sewer & water connection requirements.

Following an assessment of existing infrastructure, our team were able to deliver detailed design, QUU lodgement & liaison, and site coordination & inspection services through to a successful completion.

We are happy to once again play a part in Brisbane’s thriving local brewery culture. BE Collective has previously worked on Brisbane Brewing Co.’s Brewhouse Brewery in West End, Newstead Brewery in Milton, and the new Stone & Wood Brewery in Fortitude Valley.

Congrats to Nadresha Costa & Fabrizio Ceccarelli at FiCK!
