East St, Toowoomba

Project No: 6880

BEC was commissioned to provide multi-discipline engineering consultancy services in support of renovations and an extension to a gorgeous 3-storey pre-war heritage listed dwelling in Toowoomba. The works included internal alterations, addition of Northern and southern veranda roof, reoccupation of veranda as bathrooms, and further external works.

We provided a dilapidation audit of the existing structure and prepared a structural condition report outlining key recommendations with respect to H&S and budget allowances. We prepared structural design of new works including footings, floor, wall and roof framing, bracing, tiedown and retaining walls. The BEC team also handled inspections and documentation for design and construction, coordination of energy efficiency report, and a soil testing report.

We provided extensive ESD services for the project too, which covered model creation and initial simulation; consultation with client, model glazing and insulation improvements, energy efficiency reporting, and glazing and insulation specifications. (more…)

Harrup Park Country Club

Project No. 6485

BE Collective were proud to be a part of the Harrup Park Country Club project team, which recently received two awards at the Keno & Clubs Queensland Awards for Excellence 2017.

Harrup Park Country Club was the 2017 Winner in the Best Central Queensland Club category, and a close second in the Club of the Year Category.

The BE Collective team provided significant civil and stormwater consultancy services, along with some structural design works.

Our commission focussed mainly on carpark drainage issues, where tight restrictions necessitated a very shallow carpark and a stormwater diversion.  Our design allowed for the carpark to act as a detention basin, and included planning and design for possible future extensions.

Aside from regular sporting events and screenings, Harrup Park offers wedding and event hosting.    (more…)
