Project management of construction & post-construction.
This development has delivered 8 new social housing units for the Newcastle community.
The project saw two ageing fibro houses transformed into a safe and contemporary two-storey development made up of one- and two-bedroom units, with ample parking.
Located opposite Cook Park and close to public transport, local shops and the Newcastle CBD, the project was specifically designed with three separate façade frontages, which appear like detached homes and complement the surrounding streetscape.
Delivered in line with the Newcastle Local Environmental Plan, which permits residential apartment buildings in this low density zone, the project has delivered 4 new social housing properties for every one replaced.
