The newly build Buddhist Vihara (Temple) of Queensland is situated on 2.5 acres of bush-land setting in Goodna on an elevated land. Its native vegetation along with ample wildlife creates serene and calm surroundings, with the stone Buddha statue in meditation posture in front of the main building. The main building houses the shrine room with a beautiful Buddha statue, monks’ quarters. Disability access is from the back of the building. Toilet facilities for the visiting public are located at the ground floor area. The place can easily accommodate 500 visitors during a major festival. The veranda around the upper floor of the building provides ample space for a quiet sitting for meditation.
MBM produced initial budget cost plans as well as several design development cost plans to monitor cost during design, followed by review of lump sum tender prices to assist in contractor selection. Full review of all post contract costs including progress claim and variation assessments and negotiations. Detailed cost reporting to capture all project costs. We were involved in the project from the concept design stage to completion of the project, by working closely with the client through each stage of the project MBM was able to provide maximum return across the whole project in terms of cost and time.
