BOTANICA RISES ABOVE THE BRISBANE BOOM

'EVERYBODY seems to know the Botanica building.'

These are General Manager Otis Towill's proud words as he reflects on the completion of PBS Building's latest multi-award winning project, the Botanica Residences at Edmondstone Street.

PBS won the competitive design and construct tender for Botanica, commissioned by the Aria Property Group, delivering a portfolio defining masterpiece within a swift 18-month timeframe.

Otis says his team went above and beyond to create a project that stood out amid Brisbane's swelling construction market.

"This was a great building for us, it started around the time the building boom was really kicking off in Brisbane," says Otis.

"The attention to detail and higher specifications set the project apart from the basic investment units being built, this meant the building received more than its fair share of attention."

The building boasts 180 apartments with high quality interior finishes and a spacious rooftop amenity which includes a pool, gym, boardroom and entertainment area.

A project in itself, the building's facade features one of the largest green-walls in the southern hemisphere, with plants grown and transplanted from Victoria.

"One of the things that was quite different about this job was that the client was looking to use this project to over-deliver on expectations," says Otis.

"They had several competitors in the market building a similar style project, so we ended up managing a moving beast on finishes and inclusions - client driven upgrades continued through to the last day of construction."

Off the back of Botanica, Otis says the PBS team is currently building two more projects for Aria, alongside a few other significant developments in the pipeline.

Botanica received the Residential Building (high-rise over 3 storey) over $20 million award, and the Excellence in Energy Efficiency and Environmental Management award at the Master Builders Brisbane Housing & Construction Awards.
