Completion of Australia’s tallest prefabricated building

31 August 2016


Our Melbourne Property team, led by Partner, Eu Ming Lim, has advised Chinese development group, Longriver, on its recently completed high-rise apartment building at 323 La Trobe Street in Melbourne: Australia’s tallest prefabricated building.  Our team was involved in the negotiation and preparation of the project documentation on behalf of Longriver.

The main structure for the $95 million high-rise was completed in eight months, twice as fast as a traditional build, thanks to the use of precast concrete slabs, pre-attached windows and modular bathroom pods. Many of the building elements were manufactured off-site in a factory, then transported to the construction site.

We are excited to have been involved in such an innovative and forward-thinking project.
