Common Ground: Supportive Housing Project

Bonacci Group offered structural and civil engineering services to Grocon, to support an inner-city homeless shelter, located at 660 Elizabeth Street, Melbourne.

This 12-level project was developed by Grocon, in partnership with the State Government and Yarra Community Housing.  The project provides innovative supporting housing of 120 units for Melbourne’s homeless and is based upon the New York model known as “Common Ground”.

Bonacci Group provided engineering services for conceptual design, sketch design and design development ‘pro bono’, and ‘cost recovery’ for contract documentation and construction stage services.

The ‘Patron’ for the project is the Victorian Government and Therese Rein.
