Construction nears completion on the waterfront development.
Completion is fast approaching at Third.i Group’s luxurious Kurraba Point Residences, which has been thoughtfully designed and delivered to compliment and stand the test of time on Sydney’s grand waterfront.
When asked about his experience working with the RCC team so far, Adam Marshall, Head of Development at Third.i Group said, The project was built during unprecedented periods of rain and escalation, and our relationship with RCC remained strong throughout. It was an absolute pleasure working with the RCC team and we look forward to working with them again in the future.”
Nestled at the end of Kurraba Point and surrounded on three sides by the harbour, the project will comprise of a collection of two, three and four-bedroom apartments.
Due to Kurraba Point Residences’ proximity to the harbour, site topography and requirements for a terrain 1 Category for wind, innovative design solutions and a collaborative approach to engineering and delivery were essential. Unique design features, including curved windows and brick interfaces need to stand the test of time in this corrosive harbourfront environment.
As a result of these requirements, RCC’s project team collaborated closely with architects SJB, façade engineer Meinhardt Group, and façade contractor Micos Group to develop and test numerous prototypes. These engineering tests were facilitated to ensure the adequacy of materials and systems, with the final façade fabricated and assembled locally.
“The Kurraba Residence development was a project Third.i and our consultants were extremely passionate about. RCC has proven to be the perfect partner in bringing this project to life. Not only have they provided innovative solutions to deal with design’s complexities, they have also made it an incredibly enjoyable experience,” said Marshall.
Josh Sanderson, RCC Project Manager, added, “This exceptional project pays homage to the art deco residential apartments in the area. It’s truly beautiful from any angle – it’s been a pleasure working with our client and consultants to bring this intricate architecture to life both inside and out. We’re proud to deliver this space for future residents, and hope they enjoy these state-of-the-art buildings.”
