5 Storey student accommodation with single level semi-basement on sloping lot.  Structural and civil engineering completed including stormwater design.  Flat plate insitu concrete transfer slab at ground level transitioning to on-grade raft slab at the rear of the building.  Value engineering reviews of different building systems resulted in the use of AFS permanent formwork in-situ concrete walls for both basement retaininng and upper level load-bearing elements.  Light guage cold-form steel frames utilised for upper level framing to reduce concrete load, crane costs and construction time.
