Working in partnership with the Mantra Group and Mode Developments, Hickory Building Systems was contracted to deliver Australia’s tallest prefabricated hotel – Peppers Kings Square in Perth.

The 4.5 star hotel comprises 120 studio apartments and conference facilities over 17 levels and is situated in front of the recently opened Perth Arena. The project also features a ground floor lobby and restaurant area with exterior pedestrian arcade along Shafto Lane as well as a Function area on Level 1.

  • Hickory offered an impressively reduced construction program by prefabricating the majority of the project structure, façade and bathrooms off-site.
  • The unique construction methodology enabled the project to be completed in just 11 months with prefabricated components installed in just 11 weeks, easing the logistics and access issues involved with building on a small site footprint.
  • Hickory’s patented façade system enabled the building exterior to be completed prior to delivery, with the striking glass façade accentuated by perforated sun-shade screens spanning levels 2 – 17.
