  • 1100mm-thick basement slab, poured in two stages, in order to prevent water ingress from the water table in the area.
  • Remaining levels – 225mm-400mm post-tensioned decks, designed and constructed by Lahey, and portal steel framing to the roof and plant areas.

Project Details:

Works involved constructing a two-storey, concrete framed structure with a basement car park, ancillary works and landscaping. The project also included decanting police from the existing station adjacent to the site, and then demolishing the existing buildings and structures.

Using the concrete framed design allowed Lahey to perfect the construction of post-tensioning to areas that would later require fall, such as secure cells and wet areas, by successfully offsetting the camber in certain areas.

The basement consisted of 186 600mm diameter piles with ground anchors and shotcrete infill to create a wet wall structure, with the original design including contiguous piling to the basement area. However, Lahey proposed a more effective system of piling and shotcrete – saving the client money and meeting the needs of geotechnical investigations.
