The Grace Apartments is a 10-storey mixed-use development. It contains 106 apartments of varying sizes and two ground floor retail units. Great effort was required from the project team to manage the budget and time as they developed the detailing and design of the secondary structure. This included special detail for framing, ceilings, cladding and lining to adhere to the stringent seismic, fire and acoustic requirements. The highlight of the building is the curved facade and shape, maximising the location and providing street appeal. To achieve these curved features, its construction required close attention and a high level of skill from all involved.

The apartments had several high-end finishes, showcasing an eye for the detail from the project team.

The Latimer Central Apartments project consisted of two separate buildings - a Gatehouse housing four apartments and the main building with 30 apartments. The development also featured 18 car parks, deck areas for each unit, and a bike storage allowance. Timeframes were tight with the project. The Gatehouse had to be built quickly to ensure they could promote the new apartments and to create a ‘show apartment’ for the real estate company to use. Subcontractor resources have been closely monitored with weekly progress meetings to ensure the construction programme for the main building’s various levels continued. The development is built with seismic strength structural steel framing using specialist BRB bracing on top of a screw pile foundation system.
