The Bondi Apartments



“The Bondi” included the refurbishment of the existing nine storey Bondi Motel which fronts Campbell Parade on Sydney’s famous Bondi Beach. The project comprised 32 luxury apartments and penthouses with premium fixtures and finishes and includes modern car parking facilities using a compact car stacker. The ground floor of the development includes retail tenancies shops, the residential lobby, a new substation, service rooms and car park access.

Early works included removal of old communications tower and AC condenser units, casting of new roof grillage beams and installation of a new telecommunications tower and partial fit out of a new telecommunications equipment room (formerly Lift Motor Room). The existing concrete vehicular ramp at the rear of the building also had to be demolished to provide sufficient off-street space to stand a crane for access to all materials to and from the roof.

As the building was located on busy Campbell Parade and retail tenants continued operating, a stringent traffic management plan was implemented on site to ensure everyone went home safely.
