Dynamic Winter Activity

O

ne of the many alluring and enduring attractions of living in Western Australia is being able to enjoy an incomparable outdoor lifestyle throughout the year. The same applies to the design and building industry. Even during the colder months, work continues apace on a vast and diverse portfolio of projects that further enhance and embolden the state as a chic global destination for those seeking a holiday home by the sea or others planning a more permanent move or change of residence. Just how appealing our part of the world is – as a major standard-bearer in contemporary architecture and construction – becomes even clearer when leafing through the pages of the latest quarterly issue of The Builders Choice Magazine. Our showpiece project featured on the cover truly offers the wow factor in

Scarborough: the magnificent VetroBlue Apartments by Pyramid Constructions. Also stunning is Tribe Hotel’s new initiative for modern travellers, completed in West Perth by Probuild and featuring a pioneering modular design that represents a revolution in the hotel industry. Elsewhere this issue, we showcase another hotel project, Aloft Perth (built by the BGC Group), the Centennial Park East sporting pavilion centrepiece in Albany (completed by Smith Constructions), and the evocative Ku De Ta Perth restaurant on the Swan River (Ashbraye Building Services). We also feature luxury apartment blocks in Springs Rivervale (Tribeca East by BGC Development), Hillarys (Zahra on Angove by REN Construction Services), and Mandurah (31 Aldgate Street by Sidi Construction); as well as a music-themed home in City Beach (head

building contractor Q Group WA) and a deck addition in Yallingup (Dane Design Australia). If there is a common denominator in all the projects featured in the following pages it is a resolute commitment to environmental protection and sustainability, and one leading the way in this respect is the Cleanaway super materials recycling facility (completed by 3B Build). Finally, we join the Premier Mark McGowan for the official opening of the Aubin Grove train station, completed with the key development involvement of the Georgiou Group. Just a selection of the magnificent building projects dotted around Perth and Western Australia's highly coveted coastal areas that fulfil the ultimate lifestyle aspirations of discerning homebuyers and captivated holidaymakers.

As a consequence the company is able to provide direct contact between the client and the owners of the company, in circumstances where at least two of the owners have an intimate and detailed knowledge of all aspects of the project's

progress and execution on a daily basis. In addition to the ongoing involvement of the directors in the project's progress, there is a nucleus of highly experienced permanent site managers and contract administrators that the directors are able to draw upon.

apartment complex, in the heart of the vibrant Scarborough redevelopment precinct It consists of one, two and three-bedroom luxury apartments and six double-storey penthouses on the top floor, as well as four retail tenancies on ground floor level, a basement car park and a short-stay hotel component on levels one and two. The project brief, “to create an iconic building in the Scarborough precinct”, has been accomplished with resounding success. The key to this success was a strong professional relationship between the builder, developer and superintendent, all of which helped overcome some of the main challenges associated with the project – highlighted by a dedicated commitment to achieving high standards of finishes. For the project's developers, their most important achievement was “to complete a very complex project within the allocated time frame”. Spacious Design and Quality Finishing As for the apartments, all have their own private balcony, and feature a spacious open-plan design and quality finishing throughout. Meticulous attention to detail means each residence is designed for absolute comfort.

“VetroBlu is a magnificent 10-storey mixed-use apartment complex, in the heart of the vibrant Scarborough redevelopment precinct” The two-storey penthouses have separate living and bedroom floors, include a feature skylight, and have been designed for intelligent use of space and to maximise views and airflow. The overall VetroBlu complex contains a penthouse-level gymnasium complete with relaxing sauna, an outdoor spa, and a sky-lounge terrace offering stunning panoramic ocean views. As the developers proudly note, “Yes… VetroBlu is literally this close to the ocean!” One of the most significant general aspects of the building is the use of various different materials, and a “bold” and mixed colour palette for the external finishes and façade. Specifically, these include:  Zinc cladding – selected to complement the coastal location, due to its durability properties.  Gold-coloured aluminium screens (privacy sliding screens) – a design feature to mirror the setting sun in the west and transmit a gold reflection onto the building.

ribeca East by BGC Development is, the latest addition to the stunning 'Tribeca' apartment collection, located in the Springs Rivervale urban renewal precinct. Built on a 4,013m2 R60 medium density site with multiple street frontages, Tribeca East yielded 75 architecturally designed apartments offering 1, 2 and 3-bedroom configurations and 10 unique two-storey terrace homes, each providing two bedrooms plus a study, and ground level entertainment courtyard with direct pool access. Each apartment at Tribeca East features the high quality for which BGC Development is known. This was achieved through procurement and construction efficiencies, translating into a

superior finish, high specification standards and quality of materials, producing a more spacious and luxurious final product for buyers. Tribeca East is situated in the Springs Rivervale, on the banks of the Swan River and less than 100m from the brand new Aloft Perth hotel. The design intent for Tribeca East was to create a sense of community within the development itself, and this is enhanced by various communal areas that act as extensions to the living areas within each apartment thereby encouraging interaction and familiarity between neighbours. Residents can enjoy resort style common facilities such as the Soho Room, designed to provide flexible entertaining options to entertain guests, families or fellow neighbours and featuring a 16seat grand private dining room, lounge and theatre room and a fully equipped kitchen complete with scullery. The outdoor pavilion has a 15m heated lap pool and fully equipped Techno gym, all combining to create a secure self-contained lifestyle of convenience, function and comfort. To make full use of natural light, the design concept was centrally focused on a generous-sized courtyard, surrounded by massing,

providing excellent viewing opportunities and maximum light penetration. This also provided numerous outdoor break-out zones to promote a communal lifestyle. All apartments are provided with ample storage options, with basement storerooms and additional storage within the staircases of the terrace homes to promote an active lifestyle supportive of its location with the use of bikes, kayaks and fishing rods. In designing the Hawksburn Road streetscape, it was essential to ensure

the development both linked with and complemented the existing parkland and public open space by creating a uniform streetscape which drew residents toward the foreshore parkland. BGC Development sought to reinforce this connection in the design and landscape architecture of all three Tribeca stages, and have also introduced cross and through-linkages of green open space. The use of water-wise landscaping around the building ensures good interaction with the adjoining public open space, particularly around walkways. Existing trees have also been incorporated to good effect, softening the surrounding built form outlook. BGC Development has additionally ensured high quality landscaping of communal areas within the site to encourage residents to embrace communal boutique style living at its best. One area of note is the use of high quality materials for the façade of the development. The specific design intent for the complex was eye-catching street appeal, which was achieved through the use of handcrafted stone, various toned Alucobond cladding, painted render, louvered screens and public art, culminating in a unique, high-end finish. The terrace homes are a feature of Tribeca East, built with a style reflecting the surrounding local housing typology. This diverse dwelling option provides future residents of Tribeca East with a familiar housing style popular within the surrounding area, with an added benefit of resort-style apartment living. The terrace homes come with a 2 x 2 configuration, complete with a generous study, entrance courtyards, and with an added benefit of private bedroom balconies that allow increased natural light.

BGC Development is passionate about empowering Australians to lead a more sustainable and environmentally conscious lifestyle, choosing where practical to maximise the long-term environmental performance of Tribeca East.

system which is integrated with a typical 200mm thick insitu slab. This added a number of benefits to the build by enabling concrete mass reductions, which in turn led to reductions in building height, cost and build duration. The design takes into account the natural slope and contour of the site, with the low-lying land designed to include a semiunderground car park. The depth of the basement and foundations were optimised to minimise the requirement for temporary sheet piling. The structural arrangement was set out to allow the walling system to act as a transfer structure, a design feature that saved up to 400mm of concrete across the entire building footprint, resulting in significant environmental and cost savings. An integral relationship of the project was BGC Development's alignment with BGC Construction. This ensured universal objectives were reflected in the construction methodology, practices and the final product. Through BGC's integrated delivery model the majority of the materials and services were sourced through BGC's various divisions including BGC Builders Supplies, Brikmakers, BGC Plasterboard, BGC Fibre Cement, BGC Concrete, Automated Surveys, and Envirotechnics and Apartments WA. This meant that every party involved in the project was aligned to common goals around quality design, construction, customer satisfaction and stakeholder partnerships.

wenty year old Victorian bricklayer is training hard hoping to be named in the Australian team that will travel to Abu Dhabi in October for the 44th International WorldSkills Competition. Having won gold at the 2016 WorldSkills National Championship, Trystan has been training hard with expert Troy Everett from TAFE NSW Illawarra and with the support of the ABBTF. “WorldSkills has taught me the value of hard work,” he says.

“The journey has been nothing like I imagined, but it is totally worth it and as serious as it is, it's fun more than anything.” Trystan first got into bricklaying by doing work experience through his school and simultaneously his local footy coach took him on board at his work. “Really enjoyed the work and giving 100 percent to everything I do.” Earlier this year Trystan got to compete on the international stage travelling to China to participate in a training program with local competitors.

Trystan's final hurdle before he knows if he will become a Skillaroo is the Global Skills Challenge. To be held in Newcastle, NSW, this four-day competition will pit young people from 15 nations against each other. In bricklaying, there will be three nations with Trystan up against competitors from France and Malaysia. “I'm looking forward to testing myself against these overseas bricklayers.” So what about the rest of Trystan's plan. “After I make the team I want to win a medal. Then one day I'd like to open my own business.” If Trystan's dedication to making the Skillaroos team is anything to go by, the future looks very bright for this young man.

“Sustainable development forms a backbone to all projects,” says Dane. “Crucial elements of this include low energy use, water reuse, and employing materials with low toxicity.” DDA projects are documented within 3D modelling software, and every project is modelled in explicit detail. “The use of this software enables a high degree of accuracy of the documentation, which in turn allows thorough interrogation of the design, while offering the client an excellent medium to be able to fully understand the proposed design.” For Dane, the process of design is not just a matter of bricks and mortar. “Great service is essential and this begins and ends with the forging of a practical understanding between designer and client. We know when we have truly succeeded; this is when the owner tells us they enjoyed the process as well as the outcome.”

Autoclaved Aerated Concrete Panels Autoclaved Aerated Concrete is effectively concrete with lots of closed air pockets in it, enclosing thick steel mesh. It is lightweight and energy efficient, and is produced by adding a foaming agent to concrete in a mould, then wire cutting blocks or panels from the resulting ‘cake’, and ‘cooking’ it with steam (autoclaving). Why Build With AAC Autoclaved Aerated Concrete is an alternative building product used in residential and commercial construction.  FIRE RESISTANT  SOUND INSULATION  PREMIUM THERMAL QUALITIES  PEST FREE  FAST INSTALLATION  SOLID MASONRY  ECO FRIENDLY AAC panels are made up of mainly sand, cement and lime with a thick reinforced steel mesh inside to bind and strengthen the panel. Panels are made to very exacting dimensions with less waste and a lot less on-site mess to clean up.

The panels are fully biodegradable as the main part can be crushed down to powder form and reused in road base and the steel melted and reused, making it a substantial ecofriendly choice. AAC panels are ideal for owner builders and established building companies alike whom are looking for an alternative building product to mainstream brick and foam. Whether it be a new building or adding additional storeys or renovations to an existing home AAC is the perfect choice. The sound properties of AAC make the product great for party walls, music rooms or anywhere noise needs to be kept to a minimum or reduced, including double/multi storey buildings as flooring, and can be built on immediately after laying.

From single internal walls to external double panelled walls. This system can also incorporate aerated concrete staircases.

Superior Insulation A comforting thought for a comfortable living environment. AAC Building Panels unique construction provides superior insulation qualities for a masonry product. The unique combination of thermal resistance, along with thermal mass, makes building with AAC Ecopanels a smart choice for meeting Australia’s increasing building efficiency regulations. For home owners, the thermal efficiencies of AAC reduce the reliance on heating and cooling appliances – the combined effects of using a heater less in winter and fans or air conditioning less in summer can have a big impact on rising energy costs.

Structural Capability Lightweight yet solid and tough as masonry…

AAC Building Panels ensures lighter loads on structures compared to traditional masonry, this can lead to substantial savings in supportive concrete floors in multistorey developments. Panels can be used as internal load bearing and room divider walls and take the weight of a roof quite easily, it also provides a high degree of security between units (party walls) with the application of direct fixed plasterboard or render providing the solid feel associated with masonry. Panels can be used solely as the main structure of a wall of a dwelling or a cladding with the use of a frame either timber or steel. They can be used for internal divider walls of a dwelling also. Flooring panels also come in various lengths and thickness, 75mm and 100mm panels use joists at 600mm centre, with the 240mm thick flooring panels that can span 4m with no joists and can take up to 4kn or 400kg per sqm.

Located on the Mandurah line between Cockburn Central and Kwinana stations, the new station is expected to be used by 3,900 people each day. Mr McGowan said the $72 million train station and associated Russell Road upgrade were built while the line was still operational. “This project represents a feat of engineering,” he said, “with the station largely constructed off-site and then sections craned into place over the last 18 months.” In February 2015, national engineering and building construction company Georgiou Group commenced the 20-week Early TH ET EA M

Contractor Involvement (ECI) process for the WA State Government's Aubin Grove Station (AGS) Project. Through the ECI process, Georgiou worked with the client, Public Transport Authority (PTA), to provide advice on design, constructability and detailed program and costing advice. Georgiou also led a separate design team in collaboration with Main Roads Western Australia (MRWA) to establish traffic modelling parameters for the existing network including the new Aubin Grove Station. At the completion of the ECI stage, Georgiou was awarded two separate Design and Construct contracts: The Aubin Grove Station (AGS) for PTA, and The Russell Road Upgrade (RRU) for MRWA. Georgiou's involvement in the ECI process resulted in a complete engineered solution for the Aubin Grove Station including accurate traffic modelling to ensure the Russell Road Upgrade and surrounding infrastructure could cater for the present and future needs of the Aubin Grove Station. Georgiou's participation in the ECI also brought about significant cost savings to the WA Government and WA taxpayers, through

innovation and smart construction strategies and achievement of an ambitious timeframe which carved 12 months off PTA's standard fouryear “go to whoa” program for the development of a new station. Throughout the ECI phase the Georgiou project team worked closely with the Public Transport Authority and Main Roads WA to ensure planning was on track prior to construction commencing, thereby ensuring the project finished on time and on budget. This close relationship is considered key to the successful delivery of the project. The project scope for the AGS multi-modal station featured 2,000 parking bays, a pedestrian bridge across Kwinana Freeway and bicycle facilities including 80 spaces for bikes and connections to local paths. It also features passenger amenities which include toilets, lifts, stairs, escalators and a kiosk, together with staff amenities. The scope of works on the RRU project included the construction of a two-span, eight precast concrete beam bridge, spanning both the Mandurah Rail Line as well as the Kwinana Freeway, together with additional lanes on the approaches to this new structure on Russell Road and Gibbs Road. Additional lanes were also added to existing freeway on and off ramps. Both projects came with special challenges for the Georgiou project team, including working between two live and fully operational 25kV train tracks, a fast and relentless program (with over 70% of the station works scheduled activities being either critical or within two weeks of critical), heavy lifts for station elements, footbridge and bridge beams over electrified rail and freeway, severe space constraints (7.8m wide and 150m long), the risks associated with working adjacent to rail lines, limited freeway closures, immovable dates set 18 months prior and complex stakeholders interfaces.

cocktail bar and lounge and relaxing alfresco area, 8 on the Point can cater for almost any occasion. 8 On The Point is about traditional Chinese cuisine with a modern twist. The food is a rich tapestry of the new worlds of Cantonese cuisine with a nod to the Hong Kong palate. But behind this sophisticated, luxurious and stylish establishment there lies a story of a race against the clock to complete the fitout in time to meet a vital deadline. CDI was selected as builder for the project, based on their reputation for quality – important as this was to be a 5-star restaurant – and their ability to deliver on time. CDI's works included not only the restaurant but also the main entry hallway running through the complex. This was a mixture of porcelain panelled walls, raw cut stonework and a gold anodised aluminium baton ceiling with a wave pattern through it over its length. Custom made solid stone trough style hand basins were installed in the toilets.


8 On The Point THE BUILDERS CHOICE

The biggest challenge for CDI was time. The initial program was for 13 weeks starting at the beginning of December 2016 but this was dramatically reduced by six weeks to a seven-week program which ran over the Christmas/New Year period. This was because the restaurant owner wanted the opening to coincide with Chinese New Year, which is significant when opening a business, and the concurrence of other factors which occur only once every few years. The project's seemingly impossible time frame became a challenge to all involved to prove that it could be done. However this meant 4am starts, working 12 to 14 hour days and sometimes seven days a week. All trades sacrificed their Christmas and New Years break to keep the project on program, an effort and commitment feted as being unique. However there was some consolation in that restaurant owner Joe Lam kept workers happy with test cooks from the Caterlink kitchen during the build.

Consultants Datum101 and Hubble Design made themselves available at all times providing assistance in the background and keeping information and answers flowing to feed the project. The fitout included a 680m2 restaurant with two kitchens – a main kitchen and a DimSim specific kitchen – containing over half a

The main kitchen included an enormous single extraction hood measuring 10m while the DimSim kitchen had its own 4.5m extraction hood. Installations around the restaurant included acoustic ceiling panels of various shapes and sizes, feature tiled walls, marble clad columns, Brazilian marble reception and bar tops, and full perimeter glass and aluminium doors and windows looking over the river. The mechanical requirements for the fitout were immense, with air conditioning units, extraction fans and ductwork from the kitchen as well as fresh air supply fans and ductwork to the kitchens. All of this had to be contained within the ceiling space as it was a horizontal discharge system. The entire job hinged on the mechanical team from ENVAR being able to successfully overcome the deadline and complete the install in stages to allow other trades to continue with their work. As everything was contained within the ceiling space it was extremely crowded due to height restrictions which were complicated by a requirement for the highest possible ceiling panel achievable. Co-ordination with commercial kitchen designers and

installers Caterlink was also crucial for the kitchen installation. It literally came down to CDI tiling specific areas of walls and floors, then equipment coming in for installation while CDI continued to tile other important area. Despite the many dire predictions, the project was completed not just on time but three days early, a tribute to the teamwork and co-operation of all involved. CDI are actively growing the Hospitality/Food and Beverage aspect of the business and the 8 on the Point Chinese project is part of that expansion. The opportunity to be involved in such a project was an important addition to the works already completed in this sector and a natural addition to CDI's commercial fitout works. Through this project, CDI built a very close relationship with Caterlink. It became very obvious early in the piece that the cultures of the companies, their customer focus and the quality of product of both companies were a perfect match. CDI Group personnel who worked on the 8 on the Point Chinese project were Project Manager Jasen Nunn, Site Manager Stuart Robertson and CA Nick Richards.

Micro cement, natural stone and recycled timber are the main materials used throughout the dining areas. Notable features in the construction of the fitout include the incorporation of suspended elements, such as the old Bunbury

jetty sleepers and the custom-made and designed lighting system in Ku Deck. Custom-made suspended burnt wood panels feature in Ku Dining. These took a lot of creative involvement from the team to ensure they were positioned in the manner in which they had been envisioned.

Ku De Ta Fitout THE BUILDERS CHOICE

‘‘A carpenter by trade with experience in residential, civil and structural construction, Mr Spencer founded Ashbryae in 2014, initially concentrating on small renovations and large shed installations. The company is now involved in a broad scope of works in both residential and commercial fields’’ Also of note was the kitchen installation of one of the largest single unit hoods in Western Australia, with the unit weighing some 1.4 tonnes. This particular operation called for a certain amount of creativity and a great deal of team involvement. Such a unique and ground-breaking project will, of course, throw up special challenges to be overcome, not the least of these being to ensure the opening deadline for the restaurant was met. Finding some of the more exotic materials and working with them to ensure they complied with the designers' vision was also challenging. Sometimes elements of the design could not be

made to work in they way they were envisioned and quick thinking and resourcefulness were needed in order to find suitable alternatives in order to keep the job moving forward. Many of the problems that presented themselves were overcome through the implementation of split shifts, reverse building and creative scheduling. Since the completion of Ku De Ta Perth, Ashbraye Building Services continue to carry out residential works but have begun to take on more commercial projects, with a number of restaurant refurbishments on the horizon.

The project structure consists of AFS walls, bubble deck precast floors, external face brick façade and internal stud wall. AFS walls were used for boundary walls, because they were quicker than block work and provided all the correct acoustic and fire properties; and AFS was used for the lift shaft. The internal walls are all stud walls, which had to comply with section J, fire and acoustic. And the main challenges? According to the builders, there were tight site restrictions with access problems (the tower crane was installed in a lift shaft). Furthermore, all the roads are one way and had dangerous services running through them that restricted crane sizes. The water table was also high and they had to dedicate a full month to de-watering. Great care was taken with the archaeological condition of the site once the ground was opened up to determine if there were any remains of a 1910 bakery; and a façade wall built of steel lintels was cast into the slab edge.

he thriving southern regional centre of Albany continues to expand in both size and population and, with that expansion, comes the necessity for the constant development of infrastructure and amenities. Prominent on the list of priorities is the need for upgrading sporting facilities.

Smith Constructions, one of the longest established construction companies in the South West and Great Southern, were chosen as the Construction Contractor, being engaged on a lump sum contract through the tender process. The company believes involvement in this landmark project was an excellent opportunity to showcase the ability of their team to deliver a high quality finish on a project with a complex and unique design. All building works were overseen by Site Manager Adrian Van Den Berg and contractual requirements met by Contract Administrator Marilyn Carpenter. Adrian and Marilyn were backed by an organised and committed team of the company's Albanybased employees who worked over a 13-month period to deliver the project.

‘‘The building serves as both the community event hub and football heartland of the precinct. Close consultation with the clubs and the WAFC and clever planning of shared space has been undertaken to ensure success of this facility’’ The major challenges of the project for Smith Constructions included extensive use of structural concrete that required architectural finishes, particularly the class 2A crème concrete coloured precast panels that could not be supplied by any precast manufacturers. In order to overcome these challenges an in-house team of carpenters, steel fixers, grano workers and riggers was assembled to manufacture the panels onsite. This eliminated the possibility of damage during transport, though performing this work outside of a factory environment added other variables and difficulties to control.

The major materials used included cavity-filled reinforced masonry blockwork, in situ class 2 walls concrete, the crème tilt panels, and exposed aggregate external pavement. The roof frame was structural steel, and site-milled Colorbond kingclip roofing was used. Walls were prefinished CFC with soffit linings. The interior features blackbutt flooring with rock maple wall lining. The building serves as both the community event hub and football heartland of the precinct. Close consultation with the clubs and the WAFC and clever planning of shared space has been undertaken to ensure success of this facility. Smith Constructions is involved in a number of other exciting projects including a Multi-function Centre for Juniper Retirement Living which is nearing completion on Townsend Street, and the Albany branch is about to complete the new Albany Bus Depot on Barker Road. Architects Gresley Abas were successful in winning a public tender for the role as lead consultant for the Centennial Park Sporting Precinct. Jane Redford is the Project Architect and Ahmad Abas is the Design Director, while Ryan Deyonker and John Pham

are supporting architects who assist with documentation. Gresley Abas was established in 2004 by Philip Gresley and Ahmad Abas and has since grown into a cohesive team of 17 dedicated professionals. The practice operates across a diverse range of fields which include public/institutional buildings, residential projects, major public art commissions, international design and ideas competitions, urban design and master plan studies. Gresley Abas' overall vision for the Centennial Park project created a strong pedestrian and service spine which connects revitalised sporting fields and a variety of activity nodes along the 2km long precinct. The scheme also fosters connections back into the community and adopts best practice water management strategies. The Pavilion is joint-use and was thus a challenge insofar as it is also the home of both the Royals and Sharks football clubs that utilise the precinct. Each of the sporting groups has access to secure office and storage as part of the community meeting rooms. The spaces have been planned to allow the greatest opportunities for shared use, while acknowledging the need for security and

privacy. The wide verandahs and generous glazing to the Function Hall allow unobstructed views to the playing fields on both sides. Creating multi-purpose spaces within the sporting complex to promote social inclusion and use by the greater community was central to the designers' brief. The function block incorporates a commercial kitchen, bar, kiosk, two cool rooms, function area and multiple office and meeting areas while the detached Change Room Block provides spacious areas to incorporate change rooms, ablutions, property rooms, first aid rooms and umpires rooms all nestled behind a tiered viewing platform. Gresley Abas led a large sub-consultant team delivering a holistic and visionary precinct plan, along with two major buildings within the precinct. The first phase of this project involved a comprehensive and integrated masterplan for the entire precinct, together with the design for the two key sports facilities: the Soccer-Cricket Pavilion and the AFL Football Stadium building. Notable design features of the project included the one-piece bullnose curved roof sheeting of which the longest is 42m, and the

parallelogram-shaped crème precast panels. The building also features a unique curved roof which is designed to be reminiscent of the granite-capped mountains and coastline that is endemic to the Albany region. Another important design feature is the elongated spectator area facing the oval, with a long bar facing it, enabling all patrons to see the match. The club bars on the other side of the main bar also have a clear view as the back wall of the bar is all glass. Other significant work in which Gresley Abas are currently involved includes Wickham community hub (going to tender soon) Laverton Community hub (currently in documentation) Dayton sports precinct (in documentation), Wyndham Aboriginal centre in Victoria (documentation) and Midland Youth Centre (completed this month).

3B BUILD CLEANAWAY RECYCLING PROJECT

Mega recycling project – potential to process the city's entire waste

W TH ET EA M

ith Perth's population set to reach three million by 2020, a new $20 million Cleanaway Super Materials Recycling Facility will slash the annual volume of waste that goes to landfill by up to 234,000 tonnes of recyclable material. Almost 500 Olympic-size swimming pools of recyclable materials will be processed per year at the South Guildford mega recycling project, giving it the potential to process the city's entire waste and thereby significantly reducing the amount of waste Perth residents send to landfill.

Phone: 9322 9656 www.3bbuild.com.au Phone: (08) 9381 8511 www.meyershircore.com.au

The Cleanaway facility is the most advanced commingled recycling system in the country, with eight optical sorters in operation to separate materials such as plastics and cardboard. Typically, a materials recycling facility operates with a maximum of three optical sorters and so the new technology employed at the new Cleanaway facility provides a capability unmatched in Australia. The facility is a complete recycling service in which refuse is delivered, sorted, packaged and removed from the plant. Having previously undertaken a project with Cleanaway, 3B Build Pty Ltd was invited to tender for the South Guildford facility and was subsequently awarded the design and build contract, with some well-defined parameters being provided. And, being a design and construct contract it allowed 3B Build to alter and modify

construction value of $8.7 million, the National Lifestyle Villages' complexes at Tuart Lakes and Baldivis, projects valued at $8.1 million, several bespoke industrial warehouses for specific uses worth in excess of $50 million, a range of bespoke architect designed developments such as the Karrinyup Medical Suites and the West Leederville Medical Suites worth $6.9 million and several luxury residential developments totalling in excess of $20 million.

The Recycling Project THE BUILDERS CHOICE

‘‘Situated on approximately 2.7 hectares of land, the site consists of concrete and bitumen areas that surround the substantial warehouse-type structures which house the recycling plant’’ The Cleanaway Recycling Facility project involved initial demolition of an old trucking depot and associated buildings in order to prepare for the extensive infrastructure that will house a state-of-the-art computer-controlled process. Situated on approximately 2.7 hectares of land, the site consists of concrete and bitumen areas that surround the substantial warehouse-type structures which house the recycling plant. 3B Build employs a management structure whereby each of the three directors is involved in the execution of every project the company constructs. One director manages the commercial considerations, while the other two directors undertake construction manager roles. This structure ensures that every project has at least two of the owners of the company involved in completing and overseeing the project at any given point in time. As a consequence the company is able to provide direct contact between the client and the owners of the company, in circumstances where at least two of the owners have an intimate and detailed knowledge of all aspects of the project's progress and execution on a daily basis.

In the case of the Cleanaway project the dedicated site manager and administrator was John Voorn, with support from Sam Davidson as director/construction manager and Ross Cooperwhite managing contracts. The project involved certain challenges, with construction of the various facilities continuing while at the same time allowing for the provision of access to staged handover areas. This ensured the internal fitout could be completed virtually in line with construction completion. Site coordination was paramount to the success of the project and demanded complete and unwavering attention to coordination. The tight program had to be overcome by detailed and minute planning which, again, underlined the importance of coordination to ensure client needs were met with early access during construction. The majority of the materials used consisted of concrete, structural steel and colour bond cladding to enclose the vast warehousing needed for the complete recycling process, where rubbish enters the facility at one end of the plant and is processed into recyclable product by the time it reaches the other end.

ribe Hotels have always been clear about how to look after modern travellers. “We know it's not out-of-date services, hotel clichés or hidden extras. We started Tribe to create a contemporary design-driven alternative. An edited hotel experience.” In the case of their state-of-the-art project in West Perth, this meant circumventing traditional construction methods and embracing a smarter, more efficient production model than those used for average builds. “We've pioneered a proprietary modular build system that slashes construction costs and environmental footprints, allowing us to pass on the cost savings to our guests.” To undertake this revolutionary project in the Australian hotel market, Tribe turned to Probuild, one of Australia's largest and most

successful construction experts, and Idle Architecture Studio. According to architect Anthony Pintaudi, the key design considerations were based on a firm commitment to enforcing the Tribe brand “through innovative architectural design with highquality finishes within a low-cost operation model”. To that end, they utilised the flexibility of modular building capabilities together with Tribe Modular's exclusive manufacturing/construction facility. “The upfront design development and prototyping of the module design allowed for an efficient and high-quality end result.” The studio team was just as focused on ensuring maximum efficiency in the use of space in order to reduce operational costs; and took advantage of innovative building services and fire engineering techniques. One of the main challenges, according to Anthony, was solving complex issues related to the integration of traditional building methodology with modular construction. The overall building specifications did, nevertheless, follow a classic hotel model. The 126 rooms are distributed over seven

Design-Driven Accommodation in a Progressive Location When initially contemplating this cutting-edge hotel project, Tribe began from the premise that “every idea starts with a problem”. Theirs was, fortunately, quite simple. “Good hotels are too expensive and plagued by out-dated services and hidden extras. We established Tribe to create an accessible luxury alternative. Contemporary, designdriven accommodation (without the clichéd extras) in progressive, central locations that won't leave your wallet bare.” For Tribe, this new breed of traveller is independent and environmentally aware. “They're a group that travels far and wide, often.

Part of the challenge of this project was to preserve the existing trees within close proximity to the building in order to create a home set among established trees. This connection to nature utilises large windows to take full advantage to the outlook to enhance the charm of the building. The design and orientation maximizes the passive thermal properties of the site with louver windows allowing the client to take full advantage of the sea breezes to cool the house. The sophisticated architectural flair of this building has created more than just a well-built residence, but rather a treasured home. Q Group WA Pty Ltd was the head building contractor and it was Builder/Director Glenn Smith's responsibility to ensure that all aspects of the home were executed to the satisfaction of both the architect/project manager and the clients.

Typifying this trend is the recently completed group of seven apartments by SOL Construction in Lilacdale Road, Innaloo. The apartment complex is not a typical block of units stacked one on top of the other. Rather, it consists of two separate buildings with generous space between that accommodates a secure car park. This modern design ticks all the boxes for inner city apartment living with overall street appeal.

the size of the complex is not immediately apparent. Continuing with the clever design of the block, a total of seven apartments were accommodated on a site that would normally only fit six, yet it still retains a sense of uncluttered space. Also high on the list of design requirements was the need to ensure that the seven individual neighbouring properties had a high degree of privacy and security. Further enhancing security, the complex is gated and secure with intercom to each apartment. NBN fibre has been installed in every apartment instead of copper. Other notable features include the central driveway which passes under the upper floor apartments, and the face brick arch to the front elevation. A combination of face brick and acrylic texture coat finish to was used on external walls. Materials used include concrete slabs, brick for the walls and metal for the roofing. The interior design continues the precept of spaciousness with each apartment consisting of two bedrooms, two bathrooms, kitchen, living, meals, alfresco or balcony and storeroom.

Also challenging was the need to hold construction to front ground floor apartments at plate height until the rear apartment building had reached a point whereby restricted access – head height – would no longer pose an issue. This added at least two months to the build program. SOL Construction had worked for the client for this project previously, having done an extensive renovation on their own home in Floreat. They also took on the job of gutting and
