Now that the DA submission has been lodged with Cessnock City Council, the four students from Newcastle University who make up egresStudio are hard at work on the construction documentation, both for CC and detailed construction. As the design and construct project of the proposed three short-stay tourist houses is likely to be assessed by Council by late February, it’s all systems go working with the consultants for this stage of the project. In particular, consideration and integration of the structural engineering specifications and details continues to introduce new levels of knowledge and experience into the project.
Alongside the integration of the structural and other engineering requirements is the review of fixtures, finishes and material selections, all of which is starting to come to the fore. Once the DA is determined the students are looking forward to getting on site and getting their hands dirty. Once the egresStudio are still looking for material sponsors for the project, with the promise of extensive publicity both once the project is underway and at completion.
