Waters Edge Apartments – Gold Coast

Edge Apartments, Gold Coast Qld

Services: Structural and Civil Engineering, Project was undertaken by Jason Lenac (with Aurecon)

About: This project comprises of two residential apartment buildings of four and seven storeys rising from a common podium over single level of basement parking below the ground water table.Located close to the Gold Coast’s Broadwater, steel sheet piling was employed to retain the site perimeter and permit basement excavation in sand. A unique concrete retention wall system was adopted, both minimising the wall thicknesses and reducing construction costs for the contractor.

The carpark was re-planned to accommodate strategically located structure to eliminate transfer structure above enabling the floor height of the basement to be reduced, therefore lifting the basement out of the groundwater and reducing construction costs. The preferred design scheme adopted by the contractor involved loadbearing masonry vertical elements with in-situ concrete slabs as this yielded significant cost savings compared with a fully framed concrete structure.
