The Crown Towers Perth development has been celebrated in the 2017 Master Builders-Bankwest Excellence in Construction Awards WA – proving a major winner in both overall and subcategories for Airey Taylor Consulting. The development has won the overall Bankwest Best Project as well as Best Building Fit-Out, Best Multi-Unit Development (Over 20 units/Over $50 million) and Best Subcontractor of the Year Award for Commercial Aquatics Australia.
Airey Taylor Consulting were engaged by Central Pre-stressing to provide engineering services during construction, following their design and extensive shop drawing documentation of all post-tensioned levels for the development. It features a split 15 and 22 storey tower with 3 podium levels.
The use of post-tensioned concrete suspended floor slabs and piled foundations was significant as they enabled building upon a problematic site that was a reclaimed garbage dump. The completed designs were delivered to meet an aggressive construction schedule and were fully co-ordinated for a gross floor area of 80,000 square metres.
The 500 guestroom, 6 star hotel is now the largest hotel in Perth – and will serve as a landmark development for Western Australian hospitality. Congratulations to all contributors in bringing this beautiful and iconic project to fruition.
