Golden Age and Asia Pacific Group's Collins House is quickly rising however you could be forgiven for thinking it was completed, such is the manner of construction. Set to become the slimmest tower in Australia with 271 apartments across 60 storeys, the Bates Smart-designed building cantilevers 4.5m over the neighbouring building.

In dealing with such a constrained site, builder Hickory employed conventional formwork up to level 14, with the remainder of the tower being constructed with prefabricated modules. By utilising its HBS construction method, Hickory are able to service the project via a single tower crane, with major elements fabricated off-site and then assembled on-site.

This has resulted in a 30% reduction in the overall construction programme expected to last 29 months, with completion in September 2019.
