A boutique apartment project, Harris HMC was contracted to design and construct 25 multi-residential apartments. Unique to this project was allowing purchasers to individually customise their apartments. As specialists in early contractor involvement, Harris HMC supported our client to deliver on this promise. Our agile approach and ability to collaborate allowed for adjustments throughout the design and construction process to deliver the extra 1% our client was seeking.

The scope of works involved the design and construction of a four-storey building (including a basement level) with a total of 25 apartments – 11 one bedroom and 14 two bedroom. The basement was constructed of bored piers with shotcrete walls and a Dincel wall system. The structure of the building consists of AFS type walls and post-tensioned reinforced slabs.
