PROJECT: Botanica Residences, West End Village
VALUE OF JOB: $50 Million
CONTRACT VALUE: $300 Thousand
CONTRACTOR: Aria Property Group engaged PBS Building (QLD) to deliver the Botanica Residences Project
SCOPE OF WORK: Architectural metal works, including the ground floor awning feature fins, perforated metalwork, roof terrace perforated sheeting and beams to pool, common area and outside gym.

Botanica Residences consists of 179 apartments set across 20 levels, roof top recreation areas, ground floor retail spaces together with associated car parking and servicing facilities. The building was designed so that it provides a diverse mix of housing options for the community, offering a choice of inner city living in proximity to various public transport networks and key community, educa- tional, commercial and retail facilities.

Botanica Residences is the largest multi-unit residential project to be awarded EnviroDevelopment accreditation from the UDIA, having achieved the full six-leaf certification. The design incorporated a large array of contrasting finishes, Along with a highly detailed, kinetic façade to stand out from other buildings in the area. The façade was made up of glazing and elliptical precast panelling that alternated on each typical level thus provided a shadowing effect during different times of the day.

AMA were contracted to complete architectural metal works on the project, including the ground floor awning feature fins, perforated metalwork, Roof Terrace CNC pattern sheeting and pergola beams to pool, common area and outside Gym.

The Botanica Residences was delivered ahead of time and on budget, whilst encountering a variety of complications, drawing heavily on construction planning and programming skills in order to facilitate a seamless hand over to Aria and their tenants.


Complexities ranged from asymmetric façade, bespoke interiors, requirement creep, volatile economic conditions, and unpredictable weather patterns.

"AMA were a huge part of the successful outcome of the project." Tom Morahan, Contracts Administrator at PBS Building explained, “The rooftop architectural metal work was never intended to have custom perforated leaf screening attached to it, until requested at the final stages of construction. In turn the screens made the scenario unfavourable from an engineering perspective with wind loads. Sam and the team at AMA sourced a suitable product that ensured the architectural intent could be met and the screening installed.”

Tom at PBS Building said of Sam and the AMA team, “They provided a professional and respectful service from tendering through to the final install. The products and materials used were of a high quality, sourced locally and installed with attention to detail in mind. AMA also assisted with last minute works that were not contracted in order to keep the project from been delayed, which was key to PBS Building (QLD) delivering the Project ahead of time,” Tom continued.

Since the Botanica Residences has been completed, AMA have since been contracted on other company projects from internal referrals by the Botanica Project team. PBS Building stated that they would have no hesitation in recommending AMA and the quality of their work to any of their industry partners. ◉
