Sunbuild Pty Ltd
ADG provided Civil and Structural engineering services for the new Community Corporate Hub, part of Carpentaria Disability Services Centre.
Sunbuild Pty Ltd were successful on a design and construct tender based on ADG’s engineering design.
ADG credits Julianne Osborne for project photographs.
The project incorporates two levels of office accommodation with a single level of basement car parking. Future flexibility of internal layouts was an important feature for the building which the structural design allowed for.
ADG provided a cost effective, post tensioned slab design which facilitated the internal layout of the building and provided maximum future flexibility with generous column spacing’s. ADG also identified conservative values in the geotechnical report and requested further geotechnical testing which allowed 350kPa bearing pressure. This resulted in a 30% saving in the cost of footings. The efficient structural design allowed additional items such as entrance canopies and covered break out areas be constructed within the budget.
ADG are proud to have been involved in this successful design and construct project which was delivered within the clients’ budget and timeframe.
