8-day construction for 6-storey complex

A six-storey apartment complex in South Hedland in Western Australia is on track to be built within eight days, 20 per cent faster than originally estimated by modular builders Hickory Group.

Work began on 5 May and was completed on 12 May!

Using an innovative Australian-made building system, the 77 pre-finished apartments for Concorde South were delivered to South Hedland from the company’s Melbourne factory.

Hickory’s managing director Michael Argyrou said, “Our integrated structural building system accelerates onsite and offsite construction programs by up to 50 per cent and provides a real solution to the issues of quality, affordability, materials and skills shortages that often prevent regional development projects getting off the ground.”

The company said they are committed to providing quality, sustainable developments in regional Australia.

Unlike imported modular construction products, the Hickory System is an Australian made construction system that does not have set sizes, building heights or layouts. We can adapt to complex architectural designs that make a positive contribution to the skyline whilst having a minimal impact on the environment. The Pilbara region has been very supportive of our technology, which uses a unique delivery system that creates construction opportunities in the Pilbara as well as manufacturing jobs for displaced auto-workers in our Melbourne factory.”

The Concorde South project is being delivered in partnership with developers Acier, Maximus Australasia and Gold Star Consulting, a team with an established history of progressive project development in Western Australia, particularly in the North West.

Agents Hedland First National have been appointed to sell the apartments, which offer a mix of one, two and three bedroom layouts.
