  • St Mark's College Accommodation

    Mossop Construction + Interiors were engaged under an ABIC Major Works MW-2008 contract for the construction of the $11million new East Accommodation Building and Car Park on behalf of the St Marks College who is a leader among university residential colleges in Australia.

    This project involves the demolition of three existing buildings to make way for the construction of a new 3 storey residential building on the eastern side of the tennis courts, and construction of a new multi-deck carpark affronting Kermode Street. Works also include new site entry, delivery canopies, gates and fences, site works and provision of all associated building services. Building works were complete in January 2015, in order to meet the colleges requirements for occupation at the start of the university teaching year.

    The 1,980m2 east accommodation building consisted of a 3-storey, 32 single student rooms accommodation building incorporating basement gymnasium, store and
    plant rooms and ground floor Library. The basement construction required full benched excavation with faces of excavation shotcreted to facilitate the construction of the basement footings and walls.  The deep excavation was in immediate proximity to adjacent structures specifically St Peter’s Cathedral’s Lady Chapel and boundary stone walls, careful propping was undertaken to provide additional support during the building works.

    Due to the structural nature of the build, Mossop’s team included an independent engineer to review the building activities as they progressed on site to ensure works were being conducted within design limits. Generally the building structure consists of pre-cast concrete panels with the ground and upper floors concealed by full height masonry walls (lower sections
    partly rendered) to match existing buildings on site, concrete in-situ columns internally and a combination of off-form and lost formwork suspended slabs.

    The 3,975 m2 split level 3 storey plus basement carpark building incorporated detailed facades to shield the building use and blend in with the overall streetscape. The construction comprises a combination of contiguous bored piers shotcreted to the seen face, in-situ concrete retaining walls, pre-cast panels and structural steel frame.  Both buildings have been designed and constructed with future expansion needs in mind with capacity for the additions of further levels on top of already constructed future floor slabs.

    Mossop Construction + Interiors enjoyed an excellent working relationship with the client and the design team throughout the project delivery.

Mossop Construction + Interiors involvement with procurement of trades was critical for the effective delivery of the project. The project was originally designed with steel frames. However, as the project was scheduled to start during the BER project period, structural steel companies were all very busy to quote and could have resulted in higher project costs. Mossop Construction + Interiors suggested changing the structure to concrete and was able to procure the trade for a significantly lesser cost to the project.

    Flinders University required modern and functional teaching facilities for the students which provide clear connectivity between the Flinders Hospital and Flinders University Campus.

    The three storey, 1,300m2 building constructed on a sloping site with underlying rock accommodates a 250 seat lecture theatre; eight seminar rooms; two meeting rooms, amenities, service rooms, and roof terrace.  Materials are typically base material finish, robust and yet refined and chosen for longevity of performance and minimal maintenance. The lighting deliberately enhances the open ‘lantern’ nature of the architecture providing a functional and welcoming contact point for the campus after dark.

    The building uses green principles through shading of all glazing, the use of openable windows, economy cycle air conditioning and rainwater capture and reuse.
    “In this project Mossop Construction + Interiors met the challenge of a difficult site to deliver a standard in both internal and external detailing of which any builder would be proud. Mossop’s innovation in construction methodology and collaborative approach in dealings with design consultants and subcontractors resulted in the project’s completion with in the client’s time expectations. The challenges of geography and geotechnical aspects of the site together with interfacing an operational facility were met head on by Mossop Construction + Interiors.

    Client relationships with all members of the Mossop Construction + Interiors team were exceptional and the project represents high standards of building delivery in all regards.” – National

    Judge’s Comments: “The contractor has delivered a well-executed building over two levels on a challenging site in an old excavated area, using a range of high-quality finishes that responded to complex design and constructability issues.  It completed the building ahead of schedule and within budget, enabling the University to meet its critical dates for commencement of lectures.”

    Inspired by the London Metropolitan University, Flinders University new School of Biological Sciences – Biological Discovery Centre located on the south-western side of the southern ridge of their main Bedford Park campus is a 3 storey, 2,000m2 specialist learning space that houses 5 laboratories split over the 3 levels.

    Mossop Construction + Interiors were engaged to undertake the construction of the open plan building featuring flexible spaces, super laboratories that caters for 240 students, equipped with mobile cameras and audio visual equipment to communicate and relay live and pre-recorded lessons, allowing lecturers to move away from fixed lecterns and roam amongst the
    students. Innovative features of the building includes the level 3 open roof deck and view room that adjoins the 3 storey bird aviary and biological ecosystem that wraps the northern façade of the building and interlinks with the external staircase that services both this building and the adjoining plaza at a split level.

    Situated in a previously excavated area that was being used as a dump and storage compound the site posed many challenges, a difficult sloping rocky site with ground works starting at the peak of winter, various latent conditions were struck early during the works.  This required the diversion of undocumented deep stormwater lines and incorrectly installed fire mains
    that fell within the building footprint. These challenges put the project program under immense pressure in addition to the universities fixed practical completion date that was tied to the delivery of a new curriculum within the completed facility. With rescheduling of the critical activities and a re-sequenced building methodology we were able to mitigate lost time and
    achieved Practical Completion ahead of contract. 

    “The contractor has delivered a well-executed building over three levels on a challenging site in an old excavated area, using a range of high-quality finishes that responded to complex design and constructability issues. It completed the building ahead of schedule and within budget, enabling the University to meet its
