The design and construction of the 600 bed student accommodation facility for Monash University, Clayton Campus was attained by BroadAPM in 2010, marking the first project for the JV.
The 23,000sqm development included two, five storey buildings each containing 300 residential studio apartments with shared facilities and amenities.
The facility was architecturally designed by BVN Architecture, with services and environmentally sustainable design conducted by Norman Disney and Young, and structural design by Bonacci. The project is the first National Rental Affordability Scheme (NRAS) funded project for student accommodation and is also the first project in Australia to be awarded a 5 Star Green Star Multi- Unit Residential V1 rating for design and a 5 Star Green Star As-Built rating by the Green Building Council of Australia.
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.
Universities around Australia have shown strong leadership in the green building arena. We are delighted with Monash University’s commitment to achieve a Green Star rating for this project which will set the bench mark for future campus accommodation projects.
