480 Queen Street, Brisbane
Remedial waterproofing and rectification works across a 1,600 m2 suspended floor plate
Located at 480 Queen Street in Brisbane, this Dexus-owned building comprises a mixture of retail, educational and commercial spaces. Neighbouring buildings are a variety of residential, commercial and retail outlets.
Following practical completion of an earlier project in the building, the client engaged Buildcorp for additional remedial works which included:
- Full removal of existing garden beds on Level 4, including four horizontal gardens, raked gardens and vertical gardens on Adelaide Street & Queen Street
- Repair of waterproofing membrane
- Installation of new planter boxes across a 1,600m2 suspended floor plate
- Level 3 water damage repair works to structural steel and passive fire.
Buildcorp worked in collaboration with the client and consultants to understand the cause of the inherent defects/issues, providing Dexus with a detailed design solution.
Working in a fully occupied, live environment demanded full attention and consideration of tenant/public safety and amenity at all times. To help promote this, safe access including a well-ordered site and neat and tidy overhead gantries, hoarding and scaffolding remained of paramount importance.
