Buranda TOD – Stage 1 Development
The $1.1 B project includes demolition of the Royal Brisbane Children’s hospital and refurbishment of 120 year old state heritage listed buildings, to create a global leading benchmark for health precincts.
The development covered six hectares and adjoined the busy Royal Brisbane Hospital precinct. The site was heavily constrained and was surrounded by sensitive hospital buildings, research laboratories and state- listed heritage buildings all needing to be preserved.
The project offered the opportunity for Monitum to work with our client on the project to design and supply, deformation, vibration and noise monitoring IoT sensors in various stages of the development.
How we did it
The project required spatial enablement of a large number of construction processes. This included, capturing the state of adjoining buildings before the commencement of construction work, installations of over 100 IoT sensors to alert and warn our client of the potential of damage or disruption to sensitive buildings and structures, terrestrial laser scanning to re-create a heritage staircase buildings precisely in 3D, regular RPAS flyovers for building inspection and bulk precise excavation progress volumes and finally the customisation of a monitoring digital data sharing platform so the client could easily consume and share the data internally and with project stakeholders.
These services assisted our client to not only mitigated risks of program delays but also minimise the impact of their construction work to sensitive heritage buildings.
