Australian construction giant Probuild has completed World Class Global's 55-storey residential tower "Avant" three months early.
The Singaporean property developer has been handed 456 residential apartments early thanks in part to Probuild's new construction methodology, PCS.
The construction system uses a “horizontal” technique, similar to a car assembly line, to reduce bottlenecks and defects in large-scale construction.
Avant marks Probuild's third high-rise project on A'Beckett Street in Melbourne's CBD.
The tower, designed by Elenberg Fraser, boasts 18,500 square metres of distinctive facade with custom coloured glazing and feature fins that traverse the entire length of the building.
“Avant has been an incredibly successful project for us at Probuild,” Probuild’s Victorian managing director Luke Stambolis said.
“We once again employed the Probuild Construction System (PCS) on this project and it led to extremely high-quality apartments being handed over months in advance, as well as an excellent safety record.”
Stambolis also highlighted the achievements of his delivery team, led by project manager, Lorien Dalmau.
“With more than a decade’s experience in construction under her belt, this is Lorien’s first gig as a project manager," Stambolis said.
“She’s the only woman in Melbourne managing a 50-plus storey apartment tower in the CBD right now and to top it off she’s only in her mid-30s.”
Probuild was appointed as construction partner for the first phase of Caydon's $1 billion redevelopment on the controversial Nylex site in Cremorne.
The construction company has also been awarded the excavation works at the much-anticipated $3.9 billion Queens Wharf project in Brisbane.
