Introducing hydraulic design measures that overcome typical high-rise limitations while also saving our client money and space

Adjacent to Rhodes train station, Rhodes Central was conceived to accommodate the district’s growing population. Connected by walkways to Sydney Olympic Park, the mixed-use residential development will deliver 39 floors including 662 apartments, 4 levels of retail podium, and 8 levels of basement for resident and retail parking.

Our team provided the hydraulic services design and documentation for the building. We reduced overall probable simultaneous demand on the Sydney Water Network, allowing the site to be serviced by a single connection from the infrastructure mains with an on-site storage and reticulation system. The overall design was based on a reduced velocity drainage system to help reduce cost and give back some valuable real estate. A hot water distribution system was also introduced, designed and developed to overcome the limitations associated with circulation of hot water in high-rise buildings and dealing with semi-dependent pressure zones.

Rhodes Central is set to become the tallest tower within Sydney’s Rhodes suburb, standing as a notable landmark for the thriving area visible from at least 3 to 4 kilometres away.
