Part of Cedar Woods’ prestigious new residential community development, the Wattle Apartments feature 60 inviting contemporary one-and-two bedroom apartments in the heart of vibrant multicultural Clayton South.
Constructed over four levels and incorporating a concrete slab on ground, suspended concrete slab to level one and three storeys of lightweight timber frame construction, the complex is clad in painted fibre cement weatherboard, selected face brick and rendered walls. Architecturally designed interiors boast a mix of carpet and tile flooring as well as laminated joinery and aluminium windows throughout.
A previously successful collaboration with the same client on the Newton Apartments at Williams Landing, enabled us to draw on that experience and work closely with consultants to streamline the project design, optimising material selections, fire rating and acoustic treatments.
Adding complexity to the overall project was the integration of 5 separate internal stairs with their respective curtain walls and glazing systems into each of the allocated sections. While integrating a number of difficult façade works into a combined concrete, steel and timber structure initially presented challenges, they were subsequently resolved successfully.
Construction of the Wattle Apartments was completed mid-May 2018, in line with our scheduled programme, ensuring the client was able to organise purchaser inspections as early as possible.
