LEVEL BEST SOLUTION
Creating a high-end finish with the paving on this mixed-used development in Collingwood was easy with the use of a revolutionary pedestal system.
The Smith & Co development on Smith Street in Collingwood is a mixed-use commercial venture by developer Banco Group. Known for its edgy bars, cafes, restaurants and vintage shops, Smith Street is one of the hippest up and coming urban environments in Melbourne.
A combination of private and communal facilities, Smith & Co is a “finely crafted residential and retail development, curatorially designed around capacious gardens expressing Collingwood’s sense of community and the sites proud history.”
Built by the Hacer Group, the development incorporates a 7-level apartment building and extensive commercial space, with a 100m frontage on Smith Street that includes the first Coles supermarket in Melbourne. The facade of this historial site was restored to its original glory during the development, keeping the Coles history alive.
As a luxurious celebration of the community, the development was designed around a series of communal spaces, including three themed courtyards – Indigenous influences, European styling and edible gardens. These spaces were created with the assistance of Buzon Screwjack Pedestals from Pasco Construction Solutions.
Suited to the design and construction of raised floors, Pasco’s Buzon pedestals were the perfect solution for creating the many paved courtyards, as well as the spacious private balconies and rooftop entertaining facilities.
Designed for use with pavers, timber or steel grating, Buzon pedestals are used to create raised floors on balconies, terraces, green roofs, temporary floors and water features, which allows builders to conceal services and offer easy access for maintenance. Incorporating a patented slope-correcting device to ensure a level floor finish, and interchangeable spaces to accommodate gaps between pavers for positive drainage and air ventilation, the Buzon pedestal supports were a sustainable and easy choice to achieve the high-end finish required by Smith & Co's builders.
Designed, manufactured and tested in Belgium, Buzon pedestals have been used on projects all over the world, and now includes the Smith & Co complex as part of its illustrious portfolio.
