Probuild has successfully delivered residential development Avant Central Melbourne in the city’s CBD, for Singaporean developer World Class Global.
456 apartments have been handed over, more than three months ahead of schedule, with an exceptionally low purchaser defect rate of less than one per apartment. An achievement the company credits as a result of both excellent management and excellent systems.
“Avant has been an incredibly successful project for us at Probuild,” said Probuild’s Victorian Managing Director Luke Stambolis.
“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. What more could you want.”
Mr Stambolis also noted he was particularly proud of his delivery team, led by a young female 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.
She’s the only woman in Melbourne managing a 50+ storey apartment tower in the CBD right now and to top it off she’s only in her mid-30s. We’re very proud.
“The fantastic work done on this project has strengthened our relationship with an important client in World Class Global. Both we and the client couldn’t be happier.”
The 167m high tower also boasts 18,500m2 of distinctive façade with custom coloured glazing and feature fins that traverse the entire length of the building in a complex diagrid pattern. In a Probuild first, this façade was directly procured by Probuild from premium suppliers in China.
