46-48 Foveaux Street by SR46 in collaboration with Growthbuilt
Growthbuilt were engaged for the design and construction of 46-48 Foveaux Street, a next generation boutique affordable housing development for client SR46 and operator G Accommodation delivering 32 new short-term accommodation studios in the heart of Surry Hills, Sydney.
Design management and construction project management was led by Growthbuilt. Foveaux Street demonstrates the highest quality development and design standards and innovative construction smarts to deliver a new concept in stylish affordable living replicable in Sydney and other cities nationwide.
Not just another inner-city affordable development, the client’s vision was to deliver an ambitious new concept of short-term living for workers, travelers and students. Growthbuilt worked closely with the client from DA stage through to completion to deliver an outstanding project which exceeded the original brief and design intent to deliver much needed quality, affordable accommodation options for the local community.
Completed in late 2017, the 320 sqm site overcome significant construction challenges in a very compact, restricted access site in a busy location. A further challenge was making the best use of the available NLA with innovative interior design to deliver optimal end-user experience but not compromise on the budget and development margin targets. Rooms were max 17-25m2 each; so every corner, every fixture and fitting needed to be carefully considered.
To integrate the development with the local area, an artwork design competition and custom design features delivered a high-quality end product integrated into the local streetscape and tailored to the target market by a young, dynamic project team.
