The Point @ Varsity

Commercial / Structural
Varsity Lakes, Gold Coast, Queensland
Project Value
$8 Million

Varsity Lakes is one of south-east Queensland’s most desirable commercial, retail and residential hotspots. Located on the bank of the picturesque Lake Orr and directly in the heart of the Market Square commercial precinct stands this uniquely designed commercial development.

The Point @ Varsity offers 1500m2 of commercial space over 3 levels and incorporates a single basement car park level. The basement layout was designed to accommodate an existing property easement. During the construction phase, design contingencies were considered and ultimately implemented to accommodate a section of the basement which was built under open public car park space within the precinct.

The design team worked closely with the project stakeholders to provide innovative design solutions for minimising transfer structure which culminated in construction timeline efficiencies.

Key Design Aspects:

  • Preliminary concept, design development and construction design services.
  • Adjacent building foundation influence investigation and reporting.
  • Waterproof basement raft slab and sprayed insitu wall retention.
  • Raft slab foundation system incorporating hydrostatic uplift water pressure resisting screw piles.
  • Curvilinear entry atrium reinforced edge beams.
  • Large span boxed shaped cantilever balconies.
