Verdant Aparments, Stirling Street

The second project currently being undertaken by Fineform on Stirling Street who have again partnered with BGC Construction the construction of the Verdant Apartments in Northbridge. The project is backed by private boutique investment group Stirling Capital based in Subiaco, who have developed the award-winning Mindarie Oceanside apartments and have a further two projects to be completed on Stirling Street in the near future. 

The 21-storey, 136 apartment building optimises the use of natural lighting to reduce energy consumption throughout the seasons and has a solar-boosted central gas hot water plant. The building is surrounded by life, located a short distance from the Northbridge Entertainment District, Beaufort Street, Perth’s CBD, Perth Train Station, NIB Stadium and the WA Museum, there is no shortage of things to do.

•    Formwork
•    Concrete Pumping
•    Concrete Finishing
•    Pre-Cast Installation

Unlike Verdant’s neighbouring PBSA, no jumpform was to be constructed, however there are some small challenges which were presented. Verdant sits on a small block in Northbridge with buildings either side of the development, therefore traffic management is required when transferring materials from the roadside onto the job site. Another structural encounter is cantilevering of concrete slabs six floors from the ground, all of FineForm’s knowledge and prior construction experience will be required to ensure that weight distribution is significant to withstand the downward force of the building.

Currently developing the eighth floor of the building, Fineform are quickly progressing and are on track for scheduled completion in early 2019.
