The Gateway

Our quantity surveying team is supporting the development of a landmark new commercial project for the city of Newcastle – The Gateway.

Challenge

Designed as a showcase commercial building for a city in the process of economic transition, the award-winning design of Stage 1 features a striking curtain wall that gives a unique sense of movement to the building, and a sweeping spiral staircase that offers a rare sense of connection across floors. Due for completion in 2019, Stage 2 will add another 23,300 m2 across six storeys, along with car parking facilities.

The Gateway, Newcastle NSW

Solution

Initially engaged to prepare a cost report for submission to Newcastle City Council as part of the project’s Stage 1 development application (DA), our team was subsequently contracted to provide quantity surveying (QS) services to the project financier during the delivery phase.

RPS has provided a range of QS services to support cost-effective construction, including helping the developer to navigate quantity and cost implications when additional building levels were approved. Our team has also helped development stakeholders to understand and account for the impact of updated design criteria when a decision was made to integrate fitout works for anchor tenants with the base build.
