Sidewalk on Scottsdale
Mixed Use Development

Client: Robina Projects Australia

The project consisted of a four storey building including basement car parking within the ever expanding Robina township.  Lambert and Rehbein were engaged to provide both Structural and Civil engineering services for the design and construction of this building.  The development consists of 13 commercial units at ground level varying in size from 73m2 to 105m2 and 26 (number off) 2 and 3 bed residential units spread over the upper two floors.

The works included providing the footing and large retaining wall designs to support the superstructure.  Due to the slope of the site and change to the underlying strata the footings were constructed using both piles and conventional pads all founding into natural rock.  The superstructure consisted of reinforced concrete floor slabs supported on a series of reinforced masonry walls and concrete columns. Transfer slabs were used at both ground (above basement) and at level 1 to accommodate the change of supporting structure from the car park layout through the commercial units and into the residential units above.  The lightweight steel roof was framed using primarily timber rafters supported on pole plates with some steel posts and beams.
