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
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.
