Hera to design the two highest towers in Canberra in keeping with Value Engineering


An important new threshold for Hera Engineering. We have been chosen by Geocon to redesign Canberra’s tallest towers. The height of tower 1 is 117m, while tower 2 is 112m, with a total of 27 floors , plus 3 underground levels. The project is actually more extensive involving the development of 5 towers on a common podium.

Geocon originally contacted Hera Engineering to gain some advice on how to proceed with construction and being very satisfied they asked us to propose a design alternative. This proved to be more innovative than their building method so as a consequence they hired us to complete the work. We have removed over 1500 cubic meters of concrete from the project, but at the same time this solution has greatly accelerated construction, making the project’s realization become possible through reducing expenses.
