Lake Street Carpark, Cairns
Lead for a sub-consultant team for the design and upgrade works to an existing post tensioned concrete multi storey carpark building.
Works were undertaken in stages beginning with a full Condition Assessment and Report informing repair and upgrade works requirements to extend the life of the structure for a further 30 years.
The building was fully stripped of existing services including a lift and fully refurbished with new services, lift, security screens, traffic barriers, new roof sheeting, refurbished structural steelwork, illuminated and painted signage and a feature, powder coated aluminium façade patterned to a rainforest theme.

Intense work was required to design and install fixings for barrier and façade works to avoid a 3D weaving of post tensioning strands combined with as constructed strand and concrete profiles that varied up to 75mm out of tolerance both vertically and horizontally.
