Construction – Atherton Terrace

We got to pull on our steel caps and hard hats for this video production and photography shoot in Melbourne inner suburb of Glen Iris.

Atherton Terrace is an architecturally designed townhouse development located within Melbourne’s inner suburb of Glen Iris. This development consists of 11 townhouses, built over 3 levels with a below ground level basement.

The Atherton Terrace site is sloping towards the back of the site by approximately 3m, which has allowed for a partial basement design, whereby the rear 5 townhouses can enjoy a lockup garage and master bedroom opening onto natural ground level, with their own private court yard.

G&P Consulting Engineers have been consulted to provide both the structural design and drainage design for this project.

The basement has been constructed of a piled basement, to provide protection to the neighbouring properties during the excavation process. G&P has designed each pile to the basement walls with efficiency and accuracy, to ensure our client is provided with the most cost-effective design, while providing full coordination with the neighbouring development, and the positioning of their ground anchors to their basement wall.

The Atherton Terrace building was modelled in 3D analysis software to ensure accurate modelling of the suspended concrete transfer slab, over the basement level parking. In providing accurate calculations G&P were able to locate slab zones accurately to reduce concrete thicknesses, bringing savings to our client.

Many angled walls to the upper levels, full height glazing, and facades form part of the intricate architecture of this project.

G&P Consulting Engineers are a team of solution thinkers. They have detailed and documented all the framing necessary to support the angled walls, glazing and facades of the built form.

Their projects are designed to be built. Leaving ease for the steel fabricators and onsite framing installation through detailed design and coordination with the architecture of the building. By their team accurately designing the roof and basement drainage system, G&P were able to justify a gravity fed drainage system, contrary to many basement drainage systems.
