The Oracle Broadbeach is one of the Gold Coasts most luxurious skyhome and apartment developments. Dennis Cairns & Associates won the tender to provide the full spectrum of hydraulic services to the development that includes two towers of 40 and 50 levels, a street level retail and café precinct, multiple swimming pools and water features, indoor spa and heated pool. Completed in 2010, this sophisticated development gave Dennis Cairns & Associates the opportunity to implement a number of unique design features including multi-pressure zone fire hydrant and fire hose reel system, and a multi-zone hot and warm reticulated water supply system from a single hot water plant.
“The Oracle had particular challenges in that the two towers were built at the same time which put a stretch on all trades and therefore consultants. This is where Dennis Cairns & Associates came into their own in particular the 1.5m deep transfer slabs where most of the services were cast in, is where we relied on Dennis Cairns & Associates documentation to be both accurate and on time which meant close coordination between Dennis Cairns & Associates and structural engineers with very small lead times. The design accuracy of this part in particular was second to none, to not only make sure that the design complied with relevant standards but also that the design would fit within the parameters of the transfer slab. The Oracle itself being a very large project required a large amount of documentation not only drawings but correspondence and attending site meetings which they always delivered on time.”
