A 51 unit development consisting of four 3 storey blocks with a basement car park under one of the blocks.

Construction was precast panel walls with precast floors and external walkways, supported on piled foundations. The development included a number of units specifically fitted out for disabled clients.

Canam worked closely with the client and consultants prior to construction commencing through in a value engineering process to enable optimisation of the project design. We then worked with the client to resolve challenging foundations and subsoil problems in an economic and timely manner, which allowed the project to be completed within the required budget and construction period.
