    Judge's Comments:

    The project consists of a new tower at 478 George Street, totaling 18 levels with two basement levels. The project is located in an area of high pedestrian activity, directly adjacent to the QVB. The site is flanked on all sides by existing multi-level structures, including the Hilton Hotel, the heritage State Theatre as well as an extremely active bus lane to the site’s street frontage. 

    A collaborative approach by the engineers and head contractor led to the design of the structural steel to retain the overhead heritage façade and to carry the weight of the adjacent two storey structure. This enabled the demolition of structural walls for the pedestrian tunnel to pass under and through, allowing Built to deliver the project safely without incident whilst maintaining public access to one of the CBD’s busiest thoroughfares, all through safety in design.
