Last year, Perth-based M/Group and its construction arm, M/Construction, delivered its second Quest Apartment project, Quest Perth Ascot and although construction of the 112-room apartment hotel was subjected to lengthy planning approval delay and Covid-19 regulations, it met strict building timeframes due to a new development model and building process that saw one floor completed every two weeks.

The main structure of Quest Perth Ascot officially commenced in January 2020 and the building was fully completed in August of the same year, an eight-month build.

M/Group Managing Director, Mr Lloyd Clark, said the formula used on the project had been perfected in the development of Quest Joondalup several months prior

“The M/Construction team used a building process that combined pre-cast concrete walls and a hollow core flooring structure with the integration of construction methodologies and custom-designed feature."

“The process allowed for up to 100 people on site at once, and the building program was coordinated and synchronised to adhere to new Covid-19 safety regulations."

With concrete floors and toppings poured and cured over the weekend to create self-supporting formwork, the workspace below was obstruction-free for follow-on trades to install framing and services unencumbered. The process effectively shaved some three to four months off the construction timeline

The Quest Perth Ascot project was the result of an $11.5 million development fund managed by M/Group. Its success was preceded by Quest Joondalup which won a finalist nomination in the 2020 World Travel Awards.
