Project Description: Award winning residential development on former Defence site in Randwick. The development comprises two rows of two-storey townhouses with basement carparks. Garden space is provided at the rear at ground floor level.
Engineering: All floors are of reinforced concrete supported by load bearing masonry walls above ground floor and columns at the basement level. The buildings are located over a deep profile of sand which is of medium density at founding level immediately below the basement floor. Differential settlements were limited to acceptable levels through the use of a raft slab foundation supporting the heavier loads and screw piles bearing on the same stratum for lighter loads.
