Congratulations to all involved with Stage 1 of the Ergo Apartments project on the corner of Sturt Street and Frew Street, Adelaide for winning the inaugural award for “Best Affordable Housing” project at the Property Council of Australia awards. Those involved included Adelaide City Council, Hindmarsh Development, Hindmarsh Construction, Hames Sharley, Wallbridge & Gilbert, Sonus and Lucid Consulting Australia.
Lucid Consulting produced the mechanical, electrical, hydraulic, fire and vertical transportation services design and documentation for the development. A fully-coordinated Revit model was produced in collaboration with all consultants, and then handed over to the construction team, resulting in a streamlined construction process. This was produced in 2012 and was one of the first of many since for Lucid.
The development also achieved an average NatHERS rating of a notable 7.5-stars, with no apartment shy of 6.0-stars across all three buildings in the development, which was well above the minimum requirements and reflects the sustainable design initiatives incorporated into the project.
The second and third stages of the Ergo development are also well underway, expecting completion in July 2015.
