Designed by the world-renowned Woods Bagot Architects, Momentum Apartments consists of 112 stylish one and two bedroom apartments.
Momentum Apartments features 8 apartment levels with parking and high-quality retail units on the ground floor. The development is located in close proximity to the CBD, Perth Airport, the Swan River, Carousel Shopping centre and Curtin University.
We won the project through a competitive tender process.
- Asbestos was discovered in the top layer of earth on site during earthworks. Investigations were undertaken by an environmental engineer and contaminated fill was identified and removed. Contaminated waste was also removed from the laydown area.
- Existing soil on site was screened after the identification of asbestos on site. This mitigated additional contaminated waste and the requirement for importing fill.
- The existing footings of a bank building were adjacent to the intended location of the footings for Momentum. Construction of the Momentum strip footings would have undermined the existing bank footings. Vibration management was also required to avoid disruption through vibrations.
Momentum Apartments delivers a show stopping timber void artwork as a feature wall that extends to the roof through 6 floors that is met with an integrated timber deck on the third floor.
Features of development
The building offers open plan living apartments with full height sliding doors opening directly onto private balconies. High specification finishes feature throughout, from quality stone benchtops, to generously sized showers, built-in robes to every bedroom, electric clothes dryers and Bosch kitchen appliances.
The structure extended to all four boundaries. AFS structural walling with lightweight partitions led to an efficient and relatively fast construction with limited disruption to neighbouring shops and residents, whilst providing an attractive finish.
