Flinders Street Station Façade Strengthening and Conservation | Lovell Chen
Melbourne’s iconic Flinders Street Station has been restored to ensure the treasured landmark is preserved for current and future generations.
The original Flinders Street Station was completed in 1910, designed by James Fawcett and H.P. Ashworth of the Railways Department. As part of the Victorian Government’s refurbishment project, Flinders Street Station underwent both exterior and interior works.
In need of urgent attention, the landmark required structural strengthening, heritage façade restoration, replacement of majority of the concrete roof, extensive repair of the copper and ballroom roofs, removal of hazardous materials, repair of the clock, structural repair of the ballroom, new high-tech LED façade lighting and upgrade of the Flinders Street awning. To preserve the landmark’s history, existing fixtures and fittings were collected and stored in archive rooms. DCWC is delighted to have provided Quantity Surveying services for this heritage project.

HOTA Outdoor Stage | ARM Architecture
The Home of The Arts (HOTA), Gold Coast’s latest cultural hub, offers users a dynamic and innovative outdoor space. Visually striking, the ‘black-box’ theatre opens onto an amphitheatre, featuring a concert lawn which can cater to audiences of up to 5,000. The fully accessible precinct features an adventure-based green roof, providing a family friendly space for the public to utilise at all times.
ARM Architecture was awarded the 2018 AILA Landscape Architecture Award (Civic Landscape), 2018 AILA National Landscape Architecture Award (Tourism) and Tourism Award of Excellence for the HOTA structure. Our team assisted in the delivery of the project through providing Quantity Surveying services.
