PACT Construction has started work on Iris Residential’s 46-apartment development, One Mabel Park, in Jolimont.
The $55 million multi-residential development, designed by Cameron Chisholm Nicol, will feature solar rooftop panels and sustainably sourced timber, among other environmentally-considered elements, to meet a 7.1 Star Average NatHERS rating – the national standard for rating the energy efficiency of a home.
“As always with property, it is the location,” Mr Trevisan said.
“One Mabel Park with its direct frontage on two of Perth’s most beautiful established inner-city parks, was clearly the best located project in the precinct.
“The best location always out-performs especially when all the important ingredients to a great project are also present: design excellence, good transport options if you want to leave your cars in the secure parking provided.”
The development falls within Parkside Walk; a joint-initiative by DevelopmentWA and the Town of Cambridge, which will see the redevelopment of land that had sat vacant since 1994 into a residential estate.
Other projects within the Parkside Walk precinct include; Stirling Capital’s $42 million 49-apartment development; Giorgi Group’s 17-grouped dwellings project; and Southern Cross Care WA’s $55 million six-storey aged care facility.
One of PACT’s biggest logistic challenges so far has been ensuring no damage comes to the vast root system of a large heritage listed fig tree on Henderson oval adjacent to the site.
PACT general manager Jason Thomson said the group’s strong partnerships within the construction industry, as well as its backing by the ABN Group, was helping the company grow and expand and attract talent.
“Jonathan Wilson, project manager for One Mabel, recently returned to PACT, bringing with him experience with previous iconic projects including The Camfield, Willetton Senior High School and Methodist Ladies’ College,” Mr Thomson said.
