Residential Buildings

MAJCON's services in residential housing vary from luxury housing, apartment blocks to alterations and additions with project values up to $15M. The sites for luxury houses have been challenging structurally varying from steep sloping blocks close to adjacent properties on the Sydney Harbour foreshore, requiring complex side retention systems, to cantilevered floor structures with minimal vertical support on the foreshore elevations to maximise open views to the water.

Apartment blocks with basement car parking within high water table areas have been typical challenges for MAJCON to resolve the construction technique of in ground retention systems and to provide watertight building envelopes.
