DCA was initially commissioned as the hydraulic design consultant by the Plumbing Contractor to prepare hydraulic shop drawings, Project Management requested Dennis Cairns & Associates review the existing design. For buildability reasons Dennis Cairns & Associates were then commissioned as hydraulics design consultants to complete a full hydraulic design including sanitary and trade waste drainage, hot, warm, cold, rainwater and non potable water services, natural gas service, roof gutters and downpipes.
The project is aiming at a 4 star green star rating through measures such as the installation of water efficient fixtures, rainwater tanks, sub meters and leak detection system. Using innovative delivery methods, our team have been proud to be associated with and provide our leading services to such a high profile Heritage listed site within the Brisbane CBD.
“The Brisbane City Hall project was a complex project that required particular consideration to services reticulation through the buildingand complex co-ordination challenges with all services trades as a result of the sensitive heritage fabric. On appointment Dennis Cairns & Associates tackled this challenge effectively and were proactive in their approach to design co-ordination and responsive to site issues as they arose. The re-design and documentation was completed in very tight time frames which were met by the DCA team.”
