Contractor: Paul Y. Construction Company Limited
Structural engineer: Ove Arup & Partners Hong Kong Limited
Products Used: Everdure Caltite, Aquapel, Driwal P6, Calform WB
Type: Retail, Commercial
Where Used: Basement

A 2 level basement, constructed off the busy Bay Street in Port Melbourne. The site requires the excavation of 30,000m3 of bulk excavation, installation of 238 temporary ground anchors, construction of two lift cores and 50 pad footings. The site is also below the water table and does require the installation and maintenance of de-watering of the site. 173m3 concrete treated with Everdure Caltite was used. This allowed a permanently inherently dry basement at lower cost than conventional membrane methods.
