VICTORIA SQUARE BRINGS NEW LIFE TO BUNBURY CBD
Located in the heart of Bunbury’s CBD, BGC Construction’s latest mixed-use project, Victoria Square, is proving popular with occupants and the community.
Completed in March this year after 48 weeks of construction, Victoria Square is an eye-catching addition to the Bunbury CBD streetscape, featuring a bold colour palette and modern metal joinery.
Beneath its striking appearance, the hidden structural steel frame which accommodates the precast concrete panel façade is indicative of the efficient and high-quality construction of the Square.
A mixed-use project located on the corner of Victoria Street and Clifton Street, the building’s design includes a cohesive synergy between its commercial, retail and residential elements.
Victoria Square’s ground floor comprises commercial, restaurant and retail spaces providing amenity to the building’s residents and the surrounding community, while the first and second floors offer commercial office space with secure parking and service access provided from Clifton Street.
The top floor of the development is home to two penthouse apartments. BGC Construction Regional Manager Ross Marshall said Victoria Square was designed to cater for the individual requirements of its mixed-use tenants for the long term.
“The building has been constructed with simple, practical and low maintenance finishing techniques, ensuring durability and longevity,” Ross said.
BGC Precast also contributed to the construction of Victoria Square, collaborating with BGC Construction to manufacture precast concrete panels, hollowcore concrete floor planks and precast concrete stairs. GTEK plasterboard – another BGC product – was used throughout the development.
Other materials and finishes featured in the building include off-form concrete, exposed aggregate concrete, aluminium joinery, ceramic flooring, concrete and plasterboard partition walls, stainless steel metalwork, painted fibre cement panelling, stainless steel finished elevators and featured brickwork façades.
