The City of Perth has identified the lack of affordable housing in the Perth CBD area as one of the biggest challenges facing the city in the coming years. The City is taking the initiative in filling the current gap in ‘key worker’ housing for low income workers by implementing a demonstration project at 111 – 133 Goderich Street.
The project delivered 48 key worker apartments together with the construction of a multi-level CPP car park, to support the need to replace the parking which existed on the original site.
NS Projects provided project management services to the City for the feasibility and design stage. This role was subsequently expanded to include principal’s representative services during the tender and projects construction phases. NSP has assisted in the preparation of the business case, assisting with the financial feasibility forecasts incorporating a range of funding scenarios, assisting the City in engaging professional consultant team, ongoing programme management, and general supervision of the project through the design and delivery phases.
