Dragages selected for prestigious residential project

 

For Dragages’ first private residential project, they were selected to construct the luxury two-tower, 329-apartment, StarCrest development.

 

One constraint faced by the project team was the limited access to the construction site. Heavy equipment and materials had to be carefully navigated between narrow streets, while minimising disruption to existing business and pedestrians.

 

To accelerate the project, Dragages built the third level podium floor first, enabling works to be done concurrently on both the apartments above and the car-parking, swimming pool, and other facilities below.
