PROJECT COMPLETION | Scape Student Accommodation

This is our first venture into student housing, and it has been a collaborative and innovative journey. Working in close collaboration, senior project manager, Michael Buckthought, and Scape's senior construction manager, Shane O'Keefe, led the charge in creating modern student living spaces. Situated close to Melbourne University, this 14-floor development features 300 student beds with balconies, laundry rooms, games rooms, landscaped areas, and communal study spaces.

Our innovative use of offsite pod bathrooms and advanced 3D modelling showcases our commitment to efficiency and safety. By working closely with Scape and our project's consultants, we were able to value-manage the exterior and deliver a high-quality finish that aligns with residents' expectations.

Completed in just 13 months from bottom-out to PC, this project highlights the power of effective collaboration and a shared commitment for a quality outcome by everyone involved. A big thank you to all stakeholders, trade partners and consultants involved in this student accommodation project.
