Police Station,
Cranbourne

For the 24 hour police station in Cranbourne attention to detail was key to the cost effective design of the civil and structural works. With significant falls across the site, the effective use of batters was critical in reducing the extents and costs of the retaining walls. However, the extent of the earthworks was tempered with a desire to reduce the scope of works and the possibility of retaining a portion of the existing stormwater system.

Additionally, particular attention was paid to the curved pre-cast panels to ensure their cost effective construction, transportation and erection. This focus on the panels coupled with the judicious use of partial composite slab and beams and use of prefabricated trusses enabled a speedy construction schedule that produced additional cost savings.
