This Canon Hill building is a six-storey residential building with five apartments per level. This Stage A was the first part of a development which will comprise a total of four similar size buildings, connected by a common basement-level car park.
A shared fire service system was installed in Stage A to eventually serve the entire development. This process was managed to ensure re-work was minimised.
The air conditioning units were located on small platforms at each level, to reduce pipe runs and costs, as well as improving the quality of the development by moving the condensers off the balconies.
Through strategic use of natural ventilation openings around the basement, the carpark was deemed ‘open-deck’ and as such did not require mechanical ventilation or sprinklers, at a major cost saving to the project.
With the building fronting a busy section of Wynnum Road, the acoustics of the apartments on this side were also a consideration, and a cost-effective solution was achieved.
Providing a power supply to the site became an involved process, with several existing supplies requiring relocation as a result of the development, whilst also making allowances for a widening reserve along Wynnum Road.
The lighting and power fitout in the apartments was designed with both functionality and visual appeal in mind, and achieved a high quality of finish.
