Located in the inner Canberra suburb of Turner, Monarch is a 124 unit apartment complex spread across
two nine storey towers. Monarch offers a range of exceptionally appointed one, two & three bedroom apartments with views over the city to Lake Burley Griffin. The complex also contains a communal pool and full gym facilities.
Monarch was a negotiated project and was awarded to PBS Building after we demonstrated our capabilities to the same client on a previous development.
Monarch was a full design and construct project with PBS Building taking responsibility from the DA drawings through to completion, including the writing of the project brief.
The building is a fully framed, post tensioned concrete structure with block and rendered façade. As with most inner city projects, Monarch was built boundary to boundary requiring the use of a tower crane to manage materials handling.
One of the most challenging aspects of the project was the ground works. Even after significant blasting was undertaken, Limestone boulders the size of a family car still had to be excavated.
