Project Description

Amia is a seven storey apartment building with a single level basement on a 1800 square metre site in East Brunswick. There are two commercial tenancies with 82 car spaces over two levels and 76 apartments.

The building superstructure designed by MacLeod Consulting includes:

  • post-tensioned in-situ floors supported on reinforced concrete blade columns and walls;
  • blade reinforced concrete columns are hidden in inter-tenancy acoustic walls;
  • precast concrete stair cores and external walls;
  • lightweight timber and steel beams and column roof structures

Due to site access constraints and the close proximity of the basalt rock to ground level, reinforced concrete sprayed panels to an excavated rock face were chosen by MacLeod Consulting as the most efficient and economical retention system.

Civil design included modifications of adjacent street levels (with Council approvals), seepage drainage, roof drainage and water storage for recycling.
