Located at the heart of the Kelvin Grove Urban Village, 25 Musk Ave is a mixed unit development for the Brisbane Housing Company, an organisation that provides appropriate, secure and affordable rental housing in the city of Brisbane to people in need.

 

The 50 unit building has a concrete frame and blockwork construction with an internal atrium and courtyard connected by balconies. The site is cut into a hill and incorporates two levels of semi-basement carparking and commercial office space. Two levels of complicated transfer structures were required to achieve the best parking, office and residential spaces within the building.

 

McVeigh Consultants provided structural and civil engineering services to help achieve a robust, but cost effective building that complemented the neighbourhood within the client’s tight budget.
