RIS­ING TO THE CHAL­LENGE

The Courier-Mail - Home - - HOME -

A CHAL­LENG­ING site and one of the largest con­struc­tion pro­jects in Montville – RCQ Con­struc­tion’s Gavin Wuiske has his work cut out for him.

Al­ti­tude on Montville on the Sun­shine Coast will have apart­ments, a ho­tel and a restau­rant on the Black­all Range.

Mr Wuiske said the re­cent pour of the restau­rant-level slab was a ma­jor achievement in the mixed-use project.

“From a con­struc­tion per­spec­tive, it’s a chal­leng­ing build as the site has a 9m cross­fall along its length.

“In or­der to main­tain the build­ing’s height re­stric­tion, each unit has been ar­chi­tec­turally de­signed to fol­low the nat­u­ral lay of the land,” he said.

“Fif­teen sep­a­rate slab pours sep­a­rated by in­tri­cate block­work have been sched­uled over the next month to com­plete the struc­ture.

“Se­quenc­ing of the slab pours and sub­con­trac­tor team sizes are crit­i­cal to en­sure that no pro­gram de­lays oc­cur.”

Some of the trees milled from the site will be reused in the project build to cre­ate cus­tomised bar tops and fur­ni­ture.

The site is be­ing de­vel­oped by the Pur­cell fam­ily, who cre­ated the Montville Cafe Bar and Grill in 2008.

Al­ti­tude will have twobed­room stu­dios with spas on pri­vate decks, two-bed­room apart­ments with coast views, and three-bed­room apart­ments with rain­for­est as­pect. All apart­ments will have ocean views and fire­places.

Prices range from $350,000 to $450,000. Con­struc­tion of the project is ex­pected to be com­pleted in Septem­ber.
