Student Accommodation, Footscray Park Campus, Victoria University
Slattery delivered full cost planning services through design and construction to this recently opened student accommodation facility on Victoria University’s Footscray Park campus. The accommodation provides 508 beds through a mix of single occupancy and multi-share apartments within a 12-storey building. The site includes a small retail component. There were challenges around hazardous material removal and site remediation works that needed to be considered within the budget. It was delivered through a partnership between the University and international philanthropists John and Marcy McCall MacBain’s foundation that supports education projects around the world.
