Holiday Inn in Sunshine Coast is a new nine story hotel on First Avenue, Maroochydore which will feature 181 rooms, a roof-top swimming pool, bar and dining venue, conference and function facilities, parking and ground-level retail space.
In alignment with our client’s commitment to sustainability the hotel had been designed to achieve a 5-star NABERS rating, making it the first hotel on the Sunshine Coast to achieve this.
This project will provide a significant economic boost to the region with up to 1500 people working on the project during construction as well as 30 full and part time staff employed when the hotel is operational.
Hera Engineering has been originally appointed for a general review of the proposed structural solution. Our team identified cost savings opportunities especially in the foundations. Our solutions dramatically reduced the amount of reinforcement required in the RAFT and reduced overall program by 4 weeks. We then have been appointed to redesigned the whole structural system and supervise the construction on site.
Our final solution has led to substantial cost savings, overall improvements regarding the efficiency of the structure and speed of construction.
