Kane Constructions is thrilled to continue its partnership with the NSW Land and Housing Corporation (LAHC) to build the Cowper Street Social Housing Redevelopment in Glebe.

This exemplary eight-storey renewal project will deliver three studios, 40 one-bedroom and 27 two-bedroom apartments, along with five three-bedroom terrace homes for larger families. The north and south buildings will both be seven-storey structures consisting of Cross Laminated Timber (CLT) and precast concrete.

Environmental sustainability takes a front seat in this project. The social housing dwellings will set a new benchmark for residential sustainability, designed to achieve a 6 star Green Star and NatHERS rating.

The project will incorporate cutting-edge and contemporary building practices, and feature green roofs and new landscaping to minimise the carbon footprint.

The high-quality design will be developed using Revit® BIM software to the BIM Level of Development (LOD) 300 - Detailed Design. In using this software, design excellence and efficiency will be upheld throughout the lifecycle of construction.

Due for completion in 2024, this development will become home to approximately 130 new social housing residents and will provide over 250 jobs during the life of the project.
