As apartment living becomes increasingly prevalent across Perth, PACT Construction’s impressive apartment construction portfolio continues to build.
Completed developments include the prominent Wexford Apartments in the Subi Centro precinct and Millstream Apartments in South Perth, while other landmark projects such as Urban on Cambridge are currently under construction.
Wexford Apartments in the Subi Centro precinct saw PACT entrusted to deliver modern, well appointed apartments and additional mixed-use spaces in the heart of Subiaco. The $30 million project took 94 weeks to complete, with works spread across two sites. Navigating the challenges of a high-traffic area next to St John of God Hospital, PACT successfully completed all apartments plus contemporary retail, office and restaurant tenancies to a high standard of specification. A modern architectural façade adds to the luxurious character of the development, ensuring the finished product is highly competitive in the Subiaco real estate market.
PACT’s inner-city apartment development expertise is also evident at Millstream Apartments in South Perth. This $15.5 million project comprised 26 luxury apartments (including two deluxe penthouses) across nine levels. Resort-style facilities on-site encompassed a 40-metre concrete, gas heated pool, spa, BBQ, showers and sundeck. A high level of specification was achieved throughout the development, including travertine marble and granite in both the apartment and main lobby areas.
The timing of Millstream Apartments looked to challenge the project’s delivery, with production taking place during one of WA’s busiest construction periods. Despite the high demand for materials and trades, PACT’s strong supplier relationships ensured all apartments were delivered on schedule.
A hectic, inner-city environment and a tight building program were again confronted at 297 Vincent Street in Leederville. PACT was selected out of four key builders to develop the five storey, mixed-use development worth $11.1 million. The complicated foundations of the development demanded special expertise, requiring PACT to dig 2.2m below the water table to construct the full in-ground basement carpark. Above ground, high-voltage power cables hung precariously close to the development’s frontage. PACT developed a construction methodology that safely accommodated the cables without having to set back the building itself.
The Whitfield is a mixed-use development in the heart of the Bassendean Town Centre. Due for completion in January 2016, this $8 million project on Old Perth Road features a café, offices, carpark and 34 apartments across four storeys complementing the heritage-style of the area, the building envelope will feature traditional brickwork, glazed balustrading and Colorbond roofing.
Before construction could commence, extensive dewatering was undertaken due to the high water table. An existing sewer main also runs along the site with screw piling required along the northern boundary.
Looking west of Perth, PACT is also feverishly delivering Urban on Cambridge, a $24 million development in Wembley. This high-calibre project is due for completion in April 2016 and will appeal to those looking to enjoy the finer things in life such as floor-to-ceiling and wall-to-wall windows and doors, European-style appliances, and premium floor coverings. Committed to strength and efficiency, Urban on Cambridge’s floor plates will utilise BubbleDeck precast concrete floor panels with an in-situ topping, while the lift core, fire stairway, basement footings and all columns will employ in-situ concrete.
PACT is also creating stylish urban living at Fusion Apartments in Burswood. This $23 million, mixed-use development will boast 89 apartments and a five-star fitout, giving owners 47 different design specification options. Residents will also enjoy luxurious amenities including swimming pool, gymnasium and entertainment area.
PACT’s ‘whole of project’ approach has proven extremely valuable in the apartment development market, with PACT taking full responsibility for design, construction and project management. This complete ownership of project delivery enables their experienced team to execute first-class developments through one convenient point of contact. In addition to leading apartment developments, PACT is also behind significant projects in the education, government and commercial sectors.
PACT is currently constructing premier apartments in Bassendean, Wembley, Burswood.
With $220m in current projects under construction in Western Australia, PACT looks certain to add to their multiple Master Builders Association ‘Excellence in Construction’ awards in 2015 and beyond.
