A multi-storey apartment block consisting of 2 basement levels with single, 6-storey towers and a podium level. The structure is primarily a concrete framed building with single combined stair and lift cores for lateral stability. The building roof level is split into two portions with the lower half as a rooftop terrace. All columns, walls and vertical elements are predominantly reinforced concrete elements and post-tensioned slab elements as the main horizontal elements.

ADG worked closely with Mijollo International Architects and other external services consultants on this project to provide maximum structural efficiencies throughout the project from concept to tender documentation stage. ADG was also involved in the preliminary design of soldier piled shoring walls around the site for pricing purposes.

The building was fully modelled in a 3D structural software package and information on all structural elements were exported into a dedicated design module. Since the design process was automated and independently verified, ADG was able to undertake the design of all vertical elements efficiently with quick overall turn-around time.

This project was fully documented in a 3D Building Information Management (BIM) software which allowed streamlined coordination and clash detection for architectural, structural and building services disciplines throughout.
