ANU University House Roof Replacement

We are pleased to share some photos of the recently repaired Australian National University (ANU) University House roof.

University House was closed after severe damage in the hailstorm of January 2020. The roof repair has involved the replacement of 70,000 heritage matched roof tiles, and careful reproduction of the batten seam copper roof and associated copper guttering across the whole building. All works have been completed in close collaboration with the University’s consulting heritage architects.

Alex Morgan, Hindmarsh Project Manager said, “I am incredibly proud of the project team for the program works we have delivered to date. The scale of the damage, age of the building, and its commonwealth heritage listing required a substantial period of careful investigation, planning and materials negotiation before repair and improvement work could begin on this 1954 landmark. I would like to sincerely thank the ANU, faculty, students and the community for your patience and support during these works.”

Lxana DeGrandmont and Linh Dang

We are delighted to share that both Lxana DeGrandmont and Linh Dang have been accepted to the NAWIC ACT Mentoring Program 2024!

Jemma Butt, Project Manager said “I took part in this program as a Mentee in 2016 and had an incredible experience with two fantastic mentors at very senior levels in the Canberra Construction industry.  The Mentoring Program is a great way to have a look at other parts of the industry and gain access and insights from a senior manager who you are not reporting to. It is also a great opportunity for networking!”

For its 8th year running, NAWIC ACT partner, Wisdom Learning Pty Ltd will deliver and facilitate its informative, inclusive workshops for mentees and mentors. These monthly workshops are designed to enhance the mentee-mentor relationship and experience, fostering deeper connections.

Nadine O’Keeffe, Project Director added, “I can highly recommend this program to both Mentors, and our younger team members as Mentees. I participated in this program over several years with NAWIC and got a lot out of the program both professionally and personally. It has been great to see the Mentees I have been involved with grow and develop in their careers.”

Hindmarsh’s latest residential project, Woden Green, is under construction. Surrounded by green open spaces and located on the fringe of the Woden Town Centre, Woden Green is unique in its enviable location and offering.

Enabling works commenced on site in Feb 2023. Bulk and detailed excavation of three levels of basement have since been completed, using two 75 tonne excavators. Two Tower Cranes have been installed on site, and jump forms installed for each of the three tower cores.

Slab on ground was completed in November 2023, another big milestone for the project! As at December 2023, approximately:

  • 60,000m³ material was excavated
  • 8,000m³ of concrete was installed
  • 840T of steel was installed

Now in Feb 2024, our podium slab is nearing completion, with the jump forms currently at level 3 across all towers.

When asked about the project, Mia Dragila – Hindmarsh State Development Manager (ACT) said,

“Woden Green is a really exciting project for many reasons, but the location itself sets it apart from any other high-rise within the Woden Town Centre. The development is the only high-rise located at the eastern end of the Town Centre and is uniquely surrounded by green open spaces and established three-storey residential development. Standing at the podium level on site, gives you a full appreciation of just how expansive and uninterrupted the views will be for our residents – something truly unique to this location. Typically, Town Centre sites benefit from local amenity but are surrounded by Office buildings which lay dormant after 5pm. Woden Green is different – it offers a real suburban feel bustling with surrounding residences arriving home from work to take their kids to the nearby park, or their beloved dogs for a walk, or simply enjoying an afternoon run. All of this, and only a 5-minute walk to Westfield, it doesn’t get much better than that.”

Woden Green (WG) offers 419 exceptional 1, 2 & 3 bedroom apartments across three towers, in the heart of Phillip, ACT. WG1 is the largest of the three towers at 16 storeys high, WG2 and WG3 are 14 and 11 storeys tall respectively.

The three towers have been strategically designed and positioned across the 7,221 sqm site to maximise on aspect, view, and separation from the other buildings, whilst creating a 3,000 sqm centralised garden connecting the three at podium level. The irregular form of each tower has been cleverly considered to provide increased natural light to the apartments and a superior interface with the other towers – allowing residents to look past, rather than into the other buildings. Each building has its own street address, with shared amenity and basement carpark.

Our project team are highly experienced in delivering high-rise developments and have been heavily involved in the detailed design – utilising 3D modelling to identify and resolve any challenges offsite. As both Developer and Builder of our projects, we have the benefit of having both teams working collaboratively in the early design, ensuring buildability and liveability are never compromised.

Mia added, “Woden Green challenges traditional apartment living, by bringing together intelligent design and a showcase of amenity not seen before in Canberra. Hindmarsh saw a gap in the apartment market, so we responded by designing larger, flexible floor plans with WFH options, and an inclusive development to accommodate the growing need for both family and pet friendly apartments and amenity. I truly believe that Hindmarsh is redefining apartment living and leading the way.

The Hindmarsh development and construction teams are proud to be delivering Woden Green, and we look forward to seeing the project come to life.”
