Project Summary

Located on the CBD fringe close to Albert Park Lake and the Botanical Gardens, the former Fawkner Centre – a 20 level concrete-framed 1970s office complex – was converted into 253 two and three-bedroom apartments with the addition of a penthouse level to the existing roof. An eight-level addition – with an impressive porte-cochere – to the front of the building includes a residents' swimming pool and leisure amenities. As part of its role Adams verified the existing structure to current Australian standards – including earthquake codes – and designed the associated strengthening work as well as the conversion of an existing lift shaft to a services riser.
