The new building
has concrete pad foundations, reinforced concrete ground beams and trench
fill foundations. The structural steel frame and ‘holorib’ reinforced
concrete slab construction comprises the structure of the building. Included
within the building are goods and passenger lifts and the landlords
services. The structure is to be completed to basic shell standards for fit
out by the future retail tenants.
The exterior of the building is
carefully designed to use high quality materials such as the constituted
stone and frameless glazing. The external works include a granite sett
paving to the boundary in Fitzroy Street that will contribute to improving
the street scene of the busy pedestrian thoroughfare.
