CLAMROC CONSTRUCTIONS

Located at the end of a peaceful cul-de-sac in Broadbeach Waters, this pair of three storey free-standing bespoke waterfront villas capture stunning water and hinterland views. Our client’s scope for these villas was to have them designed and constructed using lightweight materials to reduce construction costs. The main challenge an engineer faces when designing such tall narrow villas with lightweight materials is providing sufficient lateral structural restraint to prevent excessive lateral sway from wind and foot traffic loads. Due to the lack of lateral walls within the architectural design of these villas, this was achieved through the careful design and positioning of structural steel portal bracing frames and lightweight timber floors and wall structures.
