RMA was ere engaged by Stockwell to deliver the structural engineering for this 77-unit development in Brisbane’s West End. RMA was engaged in the Pre DA phase of this $100 million development, working closely with design consultants to find structural efficiencies.
We demonstrated our local knowledge of the poor ground conditions by implementing a structural scheme that aligned the structure through the building, from the lower basement level, and throughout all floors. This allowed the transfer structure to be simplified whilst maintaining individual unit design with open river outlooks.
The basement level was also elevated to sit above the river and natural water table, removing the costs and complexities associated with designing the carpark at the river-level.
