Meeting the demands of problematic geology with ground-breaking technology.

Reflection Towers 1 and 2

STRUCTURAL / DEVELOPMENT AND CONSTRUCTION

Coolangatta, Queensland Australia

Two sister luxury residential beachfront apartment towers located on the stunning Coolangatta coastline, Reflection Tower 2 won all categories for its type at the Queensland master Builders Association Awards 2008.

The 2 x 20 storey beachfront mixed use towers was developed by Niecon Developments and built by Matrix Builders, a project which was made challenging by 2 x 3 level basements on complex geology with a high water table level.

Working closely with with Matrix Builders, we were able to incorporate precast concrete both in the retention system and in the building’s vertical components to allow the structure to get above ground level very quickly.

At the time the precast basement technology was ground breaking and still provides a water tight solution for the basements of both the buildings.
