KO&Co Architecture | COVID-19 Status Update

This has been one of the most tumultuous times in modern history. As lives and jobs are lost and the economy plummets, all our clients, consultants and builders have been consistently in our thoughts.

We have been closely monitoring advice from the World Health Organisation, our Chief Medical Officer, State and Federal government advice and will follow recommendations as they are announced.

We are aware the industry has implemented social distancing in different ways and at different rates. We want to reassure you we have successfully set up remote access for all our staff and have been effectively working remotely with minimal disruption to our deliverables.

The health and safety of our team and our clients is our priority, however, I also wish to reassure everyone our business operations and productivity continue as usual.

If you have any queries or concerns, please do not hesitate to contact our studio on 0417 007 458.

Cornwall Street project breaks ground

The Cornwall Street project in Woolloongabba broke ground this week. Designed for BHC and built by Stokes Wheeler, the new affordable rental housing will provide 32 apartments for youth and key workers. This development is the first to be constructed under the Queensland Government’s Partnering for Growth initiative.

Located on a small yet prominent site, the 9 storey apartment building will include a mix of studio and one bedroom apartments, designed to respond to the Brisbane City Council’s ‘Building’s that Breathe’ design guidelines.

BHC’s Rebecca Oelkers and Eloise Atkinson, were joined by the Hon. Jackie Trad MP, Deputy Premier and Treasurer, the Hon. Mick de Brenni, Minister for Housing and Public Works and Annemaree Callander from Brisbane Youth Service for the sod turning.
