PROJECTS

Verve on Cotton Tree

Verve on Cotton Tree is an 8 level residential development with underground basement valued at $12 million. Empire Engineering was commissioned to provide both civil and structural services to support development approval through to construction.

Brightwater Retail and Medical Centre

This shopping centre, retail and medical centre forms part of a $40 million development by Pratt Property Group which also includes a tavern and multi-storey unit development. Empire Engineering was commissioned to undertake the civil and structural engineering services which include a 7,500m2 basement carpark and over 4,800m2 of retail and medical office facilities. The podium slab was designed as a post-tensioned concrete slab to provide the most cost effective solution for the client.

Residential Houses

Empire Engineering has provided structural engineering services for over 3000 residential houses throughout Queensland. Empire Engineering is capable of providing structural engineering services for all aspects of residential house construction including, slab and footing, steel and timber framing, bracing, block-work, suspended slabs and retaining walls. Empire Engineering also has extensive experience in a variety of alternative construction methods such as waffle pods, screw piers and thermo-wall style products.

Sunshine Coast GP Super Clinic

Empire Engineering was commissioned to undertake the civil and structural engineering services for the construction of this Commonwealth funded medical centre for Ochre Health. The site covers approximately 9000m2 which includes 2900m2 of multi-level construction.

6 Storey Residential Complex

Empire Engineering provided civil and structural engineering services for the construction of this $8.5 million 6 storey residential complex. The project comprised of conventionally reinforced suspended slabs supported by load-bearing block walls. Of particular note was the use of the upper level load-bearing fire rated walls used as deep beams to effectively reduce the number and depth of beams to the podium level.

Lexus Vehicle Showroom

Empire Engineering was commisioned to provide the structural design and engineering aspects of this $2 million vehicle showroom. The glass façade of the showroom provided limited bracing opportunities for the building. However, as the façade was an essential feature of the building, Empire Engineering developed a hidden framing and bracing solution that did not detract from the required building aesthetics.

North Lakes State College Multi-Purpose Hall

As part of the Federal Government\'s Building the Education Revolution scheme in 2010, Empire Engineering was commissioned to perform the structural engineering design and documentation of numerous general learning and multi-purpose buildings including North Lakes State College. This project featured clear spanning steel portal frames throughout the vaulted roof providing a multi-purpose facility free from internal columns to maximise versatility.

Bargara Cultural and Community Centre

Empire Engineering was commissioned to provide the structural design and engineering for this award winning architecturally designed structure. Our engineers were required to undertake complex steel framing modelling and analyses to develop suitable structural solutions, allowing the eye catching angles and lines to be constructed in this cyclonic coastal region.

Parklands Rural Residential Estate

Empire Engineering has been involved with the ongoing rollout of Parklands Rural Residential subdivision, particularly stages 7, 8 and 9. The developer of Parklands Estate specified that a new standard in rural residential estates be set with Parklands. Our engineers came up with a design including a one-way cross-fall road with asphalt and concrete edges, which resulted in an infinitely more saleable product to that of the traditional bitumen seal and table drain construction. Empire Engineering also devised an alternative trunk drainage strategy for Parklands Estate which negated the need for a substantial detention basin as previously proposed by other consulting engineers. This allowed 8 hectares of additional land to be contributed as parkland.

Tannum Sands Gladstone

Tannum Sands is a 5 storey residential and commercial development located in Gladstone valued at $7.5 million. Empire Engineering was commissioned to provide both civil and structural enginering services to support development approval through to construction.

Saintsun Apartments Caloundra

Saintsun Apartments is a 9 storey residential development with three levels of underground basement carparking located at Kings Beach Caloundra valued at $10 million. Empire Engineering was commissioned to provide both civil and structural enginering services to support development approval through to construction.

66 Lot Residential Subdivision

Empire Engineering provided civil engineering services throughout the concept stages of this development right through the construction phase of this $5.8 million 66 lot residential subdivision. Empire Engineering provided the civil engineering design of all elements of the development including roads, stormwater, sewerage, water and earthworks. Our engineers also undertook stormwater quality and quantity modelling and prepared a Stormwater Management Plan for the development. Empire Engineering also undertook the role of operational works applicant for the project.

Churches of Christ Development

Churches of Christ Brookfield is a $40 million staged development comprised of 7000m2 multi storey carpark and 6 multi storey commercial and residential buildings . Empire Engineering was commissioned to provide both civil and structural engineering services to support development approval through to construction. Design aspects of note were the customisation of retaining systems to maximise economy given the sloping nature of the site.
