Large-scale projects on tight, inner-city sites throw up many challenges, usually not directly related to the construction process. This seven-storey (plus two carpark levels) apartment complex at the city end of South Melbourne was no exception. However the manufacture and supply of 210 concrete panels by Austral Precast went smoothly.

“I’ve dealt with Austral Precast for many, many years,” says project manager Tony Garifallou. “They are renowned for their product, the best quality panels in Australia.” Sandwiched on a former warehouse site with restricted access and limited onsite storage, an efficient building system such as precast concrete panel was essential for ease and speed of construction. All 210 panels for this project have a Class 2 finish, the most common specification for high-quality architectural precast concrete.

“Austral Precast have got a good panel, they’ve got really good systems in place, good QA and good installers,” says Tony Garifallou.
