PROJECT NOTES

Stella Apartments is a multi-stage apartment development that has won numerous awards for construction and design excellence nationally. Peritas was engaged to provide the structural design on stage 2 and has since been involved in all remaining stages.

Through efficient structural design, Peritas delivered a significant saving on the structure for the stage 2 development, assisting in the viability of the project. Stage 3A is a modular structure, where the apartments were constructed in a factory in Melbourne and shipped to Western Australia.

With the combination of solid engineering knowledge and state-of-the-art tools, Peritas had the edge over the competition. Their depth of understanding impressed us from the outset, as did the team’s ability to provide fast and accurate models and details. In my 25 years of running large commercial projects, Peritas are without doubt the best engineers in Perth.
