Cordelia St. Apartments Engineering Project, Brisbane Qld.
Services: Structural and Civil Engineering project undertaken by Odyssey Consulting Group
About: This 10 level apartment building is constructed over 3 levels of basement. The lowest basement is constructed 8 metres below natural ground level. The unique design of the basement slab consists of a high level foundation system with a conventional slab on ground. The basement is a drained basement to account for fluctuations in the ground water table which is located immediately below the lowest basement level, allowing considerable savings in the structure to be achieved, compared to a suspended slab on ground structure to accommodate ground water pressures.

The building over is designed using precast concrete walls and columns throughout. Walls being utilised as shear walls for lateral building stability were coupled together using a unique system, allowing floor construction cycle times to be reduced, leading to a reduction in the overall construction programme.
