Location, sustainability and lifestyle are all key facets of this mixed-use precinct – where business and lifestyle unite. The Hamilton Harbour Development enjoys prime exposure to Kingsford Smith Drive and views along the Brisbane River.
Key technical challenges
The project includes three residential towers to 22 levels plus a commercial tower with ground level retail and restaurant precincts. The project also includes a four-level basement car park servicing all towers.
Significant and interesting aspects of the project and Robert Bird Group’s role include the following:
- The four-level basement layout was configured to avoid excavation under the residential towers, thereby minimising transfer structures. All towers are linked to the basement carpark at Basement 1 level.
- The basement shoring walls are designed as cut-off walls to avoid the use of an expensive hydrostatic slab at Basement 4 level.
- Flat plate post-tensioned slabs were used throughout the development to maximise headroom and minimise floor-to-floor heights.
