The project faced challenges due to the limited site access caused by the proximity of neighbouring buildings, the retained facade, and the temporary retention framing.
Ensuring water tightness in the basement was a critical priority, considering it housed habitable learning spaces and a bookstore. The complexity was further heightened by the proximity of the basement to the retained façade.
The lower ground floor opened into a sunken courtyard, requiring the implementation of self-supporting boundary retention measures to ensure structural stability and safety around the courtyard area.
The project necessitated the incorporation of ballistics protection for the front facades, requiring innovative engineering solutions to meet the specified safety requirements.
Introducing glass bricks and their support system, which had not been used before in Australia, presented numerous challenges. The coordination of the facade and secondary structure with the primary framing required careful planning and execution to ensure structural integrity and aesthetic cohesion.
