Northbridge, a 22-storey student accommodation building has been completed on Stirling Street.

We are pleased to announce another important milestone: the 22-story student accommodation in Northbridge has been structurally topped out this week. It was an important structural project for us at Hera Engineering and as always we made the difference. Choosing to make extensive use of prefabrication by using external precast walls and hollow core for the floor ensured that the construction cycle of the building was extremely fast with a minimum requirement of manpower on site.

Hera Engineering provided the structural design, and construction engineering services. These two services together with the site supervision has been of great economic advantage to BGC Construction, in charge of the actual building construction.

We can’t wait for the project to be completed and watch the students move into this vibrant new urban part of Northbridge, one of Perth city’s most important areas.
