Sky Residences

Located in the centre of the Civic Cultural Precinct in Newcastle, Sky Residences features 180 modern apartments and 1,100 square metres of amenities, including a state-of-the-art fitness centre, heated outdoor pool and a landscaped garden retreat.

BG&E provided structural engineering services for Sky Residences, specifically, we designed and analysed both buildings and basements for vertical and lateral loads, including the design of the raft foundation of the buildings.

The two reinforced concrete residential towers of 19 and 10-storeys will be on a common two-level basement and are being constructed on a site with a high-water table, mine subsidence and a deep compressible clay layer.

Upon completion Sky Residences will serve as a contemporary home with close proximity to the Civic Light Rail Station, art gallery and University of Newcastle.
