Project Overview

Charlestown Phase 2 serves as the second phase of the overall Charlestown development and is comprised of residential and retail units. We were responsible for the design, construction and fitout of 375 new residential apartments for immediate occupation on handover. The apartments are spread over six new blocks and are six-storeys above podium level on an existing live residential and shopping centre campus.

The development includes all associated car parking, 450m² of retail space and landscaping throughout, with a private, fully enclosed courtyard dedicated for residents’ use as well as children’s play areas.

Innovations implemented throughout the development of Charlestown Phase 2B included a precast concrete frame, large pre-finished concrete balconies, along with pre-assembled bathroom pods. These off-site construction methods meant greater efficiencies, increased programme predictability and a faster pace of construction, as construction activities could overlap where work could commence off-site before the site was ready for the finished product.
