Design and Construct.
Hines Constructions completed 20 single storey, 1-2 bedroom units including associated roads and infrastructure, services reticulation also involving upgrade of the main sewer line and upgrade to sections of Baillie and Havannah Streets which also incorporated a new pedestrian Island.
The design incorporated compliance with ‘Silver Level’ of the Liveable Housing Design guidelines.
Demolition was completed to remove two existing brick dwellings. A large portion of the project was influenced by heritage requirements, such as the bricks from one of the original dwellings which were salvaged and re-laid within the new front fence works, feature arches built within the verandahs and false chimneys installed to the roof of the units facing Baillie and Havannah Streets.
Units also featured modern kitchens, shared bathrooms/laundry, open plan living areas, enclosed yard and single carport. Other associated infrastructure included internal roads, external pole lighting, communal bin store, pathways and landscaping including public garden beds.
Project was completed within the desired client timeframe and Hines have been engaged by Housing Plus to complete Project 2 ‘Riverside’, which includes a further 9 affordable living units.
