Following the successful delivery of Monash University NRAS Student Accommodation in November 2011, BroadAPM was awarded the contract to construct Deakin University’s latest student residence facility.
Funded under the National Rental Affordability Scheme (NRAS), the project provides an additional 311 beds for students studying at Deakin University’s Geelong Waurn Ponds Campus.
The project involved the construction of four individual accommodation buildings over a 2HA site.
The facility has extensive landscaping to interconnect the buildings and to provide links to the main University campus.
The project which commenced construction in September 2012 was completed January 2014 and helps meet the short supply of affordable student accommodation in the Geelong area.
In November 2010, Broad Construction Services (NSW/VIC) Pty Ltd teamed up with Melbourne based APM Group to form Joint Venture (JV) BroadAPM. The JV combined a track record in commercial construction of nearly 40 years offering a competitive mid-tier construction cost alternative in Victoria, South Australia, and Tasmania.BroadAPM is now fully incorporated into Broad.
