Parap Apartments

village@parap design and construct project sits on a 9,000 m2 site in the inner city suburb of Parap, Darwin and consists of 5 x four storey buildings totalling 100 1, 2 and 3 bedroom apartments with secure underground basement car parking for 200 vehicles and a centrally located ground level open urbane finished podium of approximately 1600m2. All apartments constructed achieved a NABERS rating of * 6 * or above.

Due to development taking entire site and involving 5 separate accommodation towers the structural design solution was made to provide the ability to segment the construction of the structures to maintain crane access throughout the entire construction period including the transfer of loads from each tower without the transfer structure being complete. It was also necessary to construct the podium slab to carry high loads and stiffness characteristics, due to the loading bay being located at the podium level.

Project Value $40 million

Completed November 2012
