Student Accommodation tower fosters sense of community and pioneers innovative delivery model
At nearly 150 metres high, 50 La Trobe Street will be one of the world’s tallest student accommodation projects to use prefabricated construction methods.
The 783-bed project includes a 43 level tower, a 7 level building at the rear of the site and a ground floor café and public access laneway. Terraces, lounges and other communal spaces for studying and socialising are dispersed throughout the project, designed to foster a sense of community amongst the student population.
By utilising Hickory Building Systems, the high-rise project will reduce both build time and construction impact for neighbouring properties, creating a safer public environment during construction and limiting disruption by taking key activities off-site.
This includes prefabricating floor slabs, facades and Sync bathroom pods in Hickory’s factory and transporting these to site for fast and efficient installation.
