MCHP Architects are collaborating with Total Construction and Razor Constructions in the Developed Design and Construction phase of Six Housing NSW projects. The projects totalling 100 Seniors and Universally Adaptable units are under construction in suburban Sydney.
These projects are part of the NSW Government and Australian Government Nation Building stimulus package rollout of 9000 new social housing dwellings to be constructed by June 2011. The projects redevelop sites generally containing existing substandard social housing with higher quality, denser and architecturally considered housing.
These projects have involved taking an initial design by HNSW and Scott Carver and developing the projects within a tight construction programme and to meet strict design criteria, including disabled access requirements.
