AV Jennings collaborated with Northpoint via an early contractor involvement (ECI) to value manage the original design for the Mill and for the surrounding townhouses and heritage structures. The heritage listed kiln posed significant challenges in relation to safety during operations, as well as to retaining its structural integrity during partial demolition. The chimney restoration was a question of safety of personnel operating in confined spaces at height. The exercise included a risk assessment and recommendations for the works, along with value engineering of the apartment and townhouse designs. Northpoint was subsequently engaged on a Design and Construct basis, and delivered the Mill Apartments on time and on budget to a very satisfied client.
