FEATURES

    • Project construction serviced by 2 tower cranes and a twin man/materials hoist.
    • Cost efficiencies delivered in tender phase throughout all trades and services whilst still achieving design intent.
    • Short procurement window from contract award to construction start, requiring careful planning, particularly in relation to the complex curved façade and crown (condensed period to confirm concept design, shop drawings, sample approvals, fabrication and delivery).
    • Optimised design of the feature façade fins resulting in material reduction of over 50% and lowering operational energy consumption by 20,000 watts.
    • Over 25,000 historical artefacts were uncovered during excavation, most dating back to the earliest days of Melbourne’s settlement. Hickory worked with archaeologists to excavate the items and the design team to incorporate some artefacts into a permanent display in the residents lobby
    • 3 separable portions requiring detailed coordination and planning around shared access.
