Brief: Design and Documentation. The original St. Vincents church in Surfers Paradise was demolished when the main Parish church moved to Broadbeach Waters and became The Sacred Heart Church. A new St. Vincents church retained the inner city presence. It was built to a tight budget and severe site restrictions (ambient noise management). The structure used tilt panel walls (then a new technology). This plan also featured a radial layout with a sloping floor for optimum visibility.

Includes: Project no. 63.06, working drawings, sequentially numbered WD.01 to WD.013 and WD.18, for landscaping, floor plan, roof plan, details, sections, elevations, internal elevation, window schedule and furniture details.
