Completion year 2017
The project involved the construction of two building comprising of 425 residential apartments over 43 levels and 251 hotel rooms over 16 levels.
The Fire Engineering team were successful in maintaining architectural intent in regards to the central core of the building by permitting the fire stairs to discharge within the building on the Ground Level. Extended travel distances and reduced fire rating were also taken into consideration in the design.
The residential tower cantilevers toward the Yarra River, designed to give spectacular views of Melbourne and the Dandenong Ranges beyond.
The short timeframe for construction provided new challenges to the design team as a whole. WGE were able to assist the team to ease the process, including providing advice around fire compartmentation strategies and internal and external materials.
