Downtown Queen St


Kwanto was engaged by Asean Properties in 2015 to review the contractor tenders, provide financial administration services during the construction works and provide monthly financial reports to the client's bank.

We worked closely with the client and the project team (RDT Pacific & Waide Construction) to ensure the costs were kept at bay and the client was in the loop.

The construction was split into two stages and the first stage was quite challenging, with significant issues with the foundations and ground works early in the project, the dedicated team of contractors pushed through the difficulties to produce an immaculate ground floor retail space along with a structurally stable building. This was achieved by installing a new steel frame which is tied back to the new foundations, all within the confines of the existing external brickwork walls. The historic Queen Street façade was retained, with repair work and repainting.

The second stage of this project involved the fitout of an office space on level 1 and two multi-level apartments on levels 2 & 3.

This building boasts an abundance of character and has been brought back to its former glory. Queen Street received a Merit award in the catergory 'Heritage & Adaptive Reuses' at the 2018 Property Industry Awards.
