Bank Street Apartments

Project No. 6624

The Bank St development is located in the heart of West End, Brisbane. Comprised of 23 apartments over 6-storeys – including a rooftop pool and deck, the project is designed to offer comfort, luxury and convenience. The development includes a two-level basement with carefully planned entrance to achieve circulation requirements and minimise the likelihood of flooding.

BE Collective’s commissioned scope includes the structural and civil hydraulic aspects of the development, including sewer upgrade, all the way through the design & documentation and construction phases.

Site constraints, maximisation of GFA, and achieving required circulation necessitated quite complicated cantilevered transfer slabs on the ground and first floors. The suspended basement slabs and substructure were also an area of significant challenge and success, with plain reinforced concrete slabs spanning over 8 metres to achieve isle width and ease of traffic movement.

Following on a successful design & documentation stage and development and DA approval, the project programme sees construction starting in early 2017. (more…)

Burwood Nursing Home

Project No. 6777

Burwood Nursing Home

BE Collective was proud to work alongside Jackson Teece on a 3 storey plus basement building, which will facilitate a high-end aged care facility for inner Sydney.

Our commission included preliminary structural, building services, a Stormwater Drainage Concept Plan (SWDCP), and mechanical consultancy on Heating, Ventilation and Air Conditioning (HVAC).

Our team had to work within rigid height restrictions and coding, specifically in regards to air conditioners placed on top of the structure. We proposed a cutting edge gas powered air-condition system, which would save the client energy costs over time, improve the sustainability of the building, and could be moved off the top of the building to ensure compliance. These kinds of systems are only just being introduced to Australia, and we’re aware of only one supplier in country, Yanmar. (more…)

Verde Apartments

verde1aProject No: 6441

Verde, the 12-storey, 82 apartment, development in West End was one of our most exciting projects to work on to date – we got to design and engineer what was the largest green wall in Queensland at the time. Our design made in onto channel 7 news and was featured in Brisbane Developments.

Our signature multi-disciplinary capabilities and long-term façade experience made us the perfect team for the Job. Designing a green wall façade required a range of specialist Structural, Civil, and Plumbing & Drainage contributions. Our solution also included the design of a 12,000 litre-per-day Class B grey water treatment irrigation system. The BE Collective Team were able to take care of the entire engineering scope under the one roof, and additionally offered a full multi-discipline scope of service for the rest of the building including

BE Collective provided Structural, civil, plumbing & drainage, traffic & ESD engineering consultancy services throughout:

  • The full 12-storeys of the building which cantilever more than 3 metres at the rear to facilitate parking via full height wall struts.
  • Our traffic engineering design which facilitates dedicated parking for 9 motorcycles – and over 100 bicycles, in support of sustainable design.
  • The landscaping inclusive of the green walls will require some 12,000 liters of irrigation water per day.
