Aqua Apartments, SA
Project duration: September 2002 to August 2003
Value: $5 million
Contract type: Negotiated Lump Sum
Summary: Built Environs’ construction of this six-storey residential building in Adelaide raised the standard of apartments in Adelaide’s CBD.
Located in Flinders Street, Aqua Apartments comprises 14 apartments ranging from one to three bedrooms and a 300-m2 penthouse with a rooftop terrace on the sixth storey. The basement level contains car parking areas with the ground floor area split between car parking and a commercial tenancy.
Each apartment has a roomy enclosed balcony area with floor to ceiling glass that provides uninterrupted views of the city surrounds. The open plan interiors are enhanced with the latest state-of-the-art ‘smart technology’.
The extremely tight site area meant that access during construction was only available off busy Flinders Street and a narrow laneway to the rear. This required Built Environs to strictly manage and monitor all deliveries and control subcontractor activities at all times.
Aqua Apartments provide a new level of luxury for Adelaide, with high quality finishes, large open spaces within the apartments and wide balconies with natural light.
