Kingston Building was awarded the contract to construct a two storey unit block consisting of 4 x 2 bedroom units and 4 x 1 bedroom units for affordable general housing.
The works involved the demolition of two existing dwellings and the construction of a brick two storey building.
Features of the project included numerous retaining walls to ensure correct levels. All internal walls were direct stick plasterboard to brickwork. Bathrooms included rendered and tiled brickwork with services chased.
The kitchens were manufactured and installed by Kingston’s joinery shop.
The main difficulty associated with the project involved excavation works in extremely hard rock which needed to be saw cut and hammered with a 30t excavator in order to remove it to achieve the correct building levels. The discovered rock was not identified on the geotechnical reports and caused delays to the upfront works which were countered by fast-tracking the building and fit out works to achieve the contract program.
