The eight storey Trinity Apartments provide large inner city, up market living. All apartments have outdoor living areas with views to the north or south.
An innovative precast concrete shear wall system was developed by Silvester Clark, the Architect and the Contractor. The system was tested to comply with E2 requirements. The system provided a structural wall cladding that was both straightforward to erect with tolerance and a low risk watertight barrier.
A 300mm thick reinforced concrete central shear wall provides the lateral load resisting system in the other direction (east/west).
The floors are constructed in speedfloor and foundations are a mix of belled and straight shaft bored cast insitu piles.
