Mulberry Apartments – ACT, Australia

The Mulberry Apartments are designed to promote a unique and innovative urban living experience.

Located just outside of the Canberra CBD, Australia, these one, two- and three-bedroom apartments exhibit world-class modern features that are designed to create an environment that connects both indoor and outdooring living.

The Apartments have been carefully designed to cater and add value to the modern individual’s lifestyle, offering lower utility costs through embedded networks, that provide power, hot water and internet including continual WI-FI access throughout Mulberry’s communal spaces.

Flora Street – QLD, Australia

ELLUC Projects were responsible for modelling the precast structure to produce full shop drawings and RC drawings for these luxurious apartments.

Designed to create a desirable resort style living for residents, Cello Apartments is comprised of two individual buildings, offering a mix of one, two- and three-bedroom apartments that aim to combine full city living with private and suburban aspects.

Located right outside Brisbane’s CBD within the Stones Corner Village retail and café precinct of Greenslopes these boutique apartments are designed to compliment an individual’s lifestyle.
The Flora Street apartments are expected for completion mid-2021.

Parramatta Light Rail – NSW, Australia

The Parramatta Light Rail is one of the New South Wales Governments latest major infrastructure projects. The Parramatta Light Rail will consist of two stages that will result in a 12-kilometre track that will connect Westmead to Carlingford, via the Parramatta CBD and Camellia.

The infrastructure project consists of a large number of bridge and tunnel structures. ELLUC Projects have been involved in the initial works for modelling the bridge structures and providing full prefabrication documentation.

The Paramatta Light Rail is due for completion in 2023.

East Palm – QLD, Australia

ELLUC Projects were involved in the development of the East Palm Beach Apartments. Compromised of 34 boutique, two- and three-bedroom apartments with beautiful panoramic ocean views.

Distribution Centre

ELLUC Projects were involved in the development of a 66,000sqm state of the art temperature-controlled warehouse and distribution centre in Redbank, Queensland, Australia.

This facility will utilise low energy led lighting, solar power generation and 180,000 lifters of rainwater storage capacity to reduce water use on-site.

Chorlton Street – Manchester, UK

Cringle Corporation Ltd and Staying Cool Ltd have partnered to create a high quality aparthotel with additional restaurant in the heart of Manchester. The development will provide 41 high quality apartment hotel rooms, associated with ancillary space and 480sqm of Restaurant / bar space.

In the heart of a conservation area and located close to Piccadilly station and within walking distance of many commercial, shopping and eating venues in and around the city. These attributes make the site an ideal location for an aparthotel.

40 Chorlton street is an early 20th Century warehouse building that has been substantially altered and stands at 4/5 storeys in height. The scheme will be completed using 3D modelling methods to provide for increased opportunity for the design to be enhanced and refined, and the sometimes complex issue of M&E co-ordination to be resolved more easily.”

There were many benefits and lessons learnt from Chorlton Street, the main advantage being all of the sectors involved with the project working to Level 2 BIM with all of the design produced on 3D software.

From doing this, you can ensure the co-ordination and accuracy of this project is to the highest of standards. The main output from doing this is clash detection, which checks elements from different
sectors and highlights any issues, if there were clashes between architectural and structural elements for example. This was especially useful for this project considering that there was very limited floor to
ceiling height. We could resolves issues through Naviswork prior to any construction taking place, in doing so, saving time, and capital later down the line.

Snape Lane – UK

ELLUC Projects were engaged in the design and development process for Space4, an initiative established to assist one of the UK’s largest house builders.

Upon ELLUC Projects commenced negotiations with the council, Environmental agencies & statutory bodies, of which we successfully secured a runoff rate of 200L/S, providing financial savings in exes of $800,000 through reducing he onsite attenuation.

Due to our success of significantly reducing the abnormal costs, ELLUC Projects were further engaged for the detailed infrastructure engineering designs.


– Negotiated the greenfield run off rate to 200l/s

– In excess of $800,000 saved through reduction of on site attenuation

– Brickwork factory to produce 88 million bricks per year to supPly the developer

The Rectory – UK

ELLLUC Projects were commissioned as Hydrology, Civil & Structural Engineering consultants for the development of a new Autism Centre, with residential housing.

There was initial concerns as there were several watercourses both in and around the site. ELLUC Projects noted that the EA maps indicate flooding from catchments above 3km². However the watercourses on site had catchments of less than 3km² and so were not highlighted on the EA Flood Maps. Liaison with the Lead Local Flood Authority (LLFA) was required to understand if there were any past records of flooding on the site and agree that the construction works were

The LLFA initially responded that the proposed layout wasn’t acceptable, this was due to the positioning of the main carpark being above the existing watercourse. In principle, the culverting of a watercourse is not allowed except for access. In response to this ELLUC Projects successfully negotiated an alternative method. This involved diverting the existing watercourse to flow around the carpark and then culverting the watercourse beneath the access road. This was accepted by the LLFA and the proposed layout was therefore not altered, allowing the client to achieve the most efficient solution.

New Cross – UK

ELLUC Projects provided a full Structural design and Precast services on the scheme. Due to the demanding onsite programme and tight site constraints we have designed a completely offsite fabricated solution for the superstructure.

Using our specialist team of precast concrete engineers a fully brick clad composite panel system was developed for the façade with solid precast cross walls and slender 250mm prestressed floor slabs. By doing this therefore allowed the client to begin phase two of the development ahead of the tight timescales, consequently enabling them to increase the capital of the scheme through savings in construction time.


– 274 New Build to rent homes

– $124m Gross Development Value

– Delivered through the New Cross Neighbourhood Development Framework in consultation with the Council

– 2 Blocks delivered simultaneously

– Executed to BIM Level 2 standards alongside producing full design & detailing services for the precast panels

Fortis Quay – Manchester, UK

The Fortis Quay landmark development will consist of 756 build to rent apartments over four phases. ELLUC Projects were engaged on phase 1 of the development for the conversion of two former office buildings, to be extended by 4 & 6 storeys.

Phase 1 of the development is to consist of 276 Apartments developed by Beaumont Morgan & Fortis Developments on behalf of Clarion.

The existing buildings at Furness Quay in Salford comprised of two buildings of six and eight stories. The buildings, designed and constructed in the 1970’s, had space until 2016 when our client, Fortis Developments, purchased the buildings and submitted a change of use to convert them to residential. We undertook extensive desktop studies during the early stages of the project to identify any redundancy in the existing structure and assess the potential for extension and conversion.


– $450m + Gross Development Value

– Light weight steel frame to increase the buildings by 4 & 6 storeys
