Flinders Street Station Administration Building
Iconic landmark in the Melbourne Central Business District
Flinders Street Station is an iconic feature of the Victorian state as well as being Melbourne’s operational rail infrastructure. The cultural significance of the station is reflected in its inclusion, and in its totality, in the Victorian Heritage Register. In late 2014, Bonacci Group were the lead consultants providing structural and civil engineering services, and sub-consultants providing facade engineering services for the Flinders Street Administration Building. We provided detailed structural investigation and feasibility study for this project.
Key elements of this study included seismic assessments, geotechnical investigations, and modelling of the sub-surface conditions in the vicinity of the rail corridor. Our engagement was further extended to provide investigation, design, documentation, and construction services for the full refurbishment of the building exterior including clock tower seismic strengthening.
These refurbishment works also included both major upgrade of the roof slab and the waterproofing and strengthening of vulnerable parapets and ornaments. As part of the works, the exterior feature lighting was replaced with state-of-the-art dynamic illumination.
