SK Construction formally Appointed as Construction Partner

May 2024

Highett Common developer, Sunkin Property Group, has formally appointed SK Construction to deliver Melbourne’s bayside community.

The partnership commenced a unique builder-developer relationship between the two companies, with SK Construction and Sunkin forming a completely exclusive agreement to deliver the Developer’s existing and future project pipeline.

This announcement coincides with the commencement of Highett Common’s stage 1 construction program, which will see 167 new apartments completed across the first two buildings of Park House and North Lane by late-2025.

Lloyd Collins, General Manager of Property at Sunkin Property Group, says the developer considered several external builders for Highett Common before an exclusive partnership was created with SK Construction.

“The exclusive partnership with SK Construction allows Sunkin to have complete oversight over the delivery status and budget of each stage within Highett Common. This agreement allows us to better control the construction process and therefore provide additional delivery assurance to our customers.”

Recognising construction confidence is a contributing factor to sales success, Sunkin recently completed over $10m of early infrastructure works at Highett Common including roads, kerb and channelling, water infrastructure and early basement works.

Commitment to deliver Net-Zero targets.

SK Construction will work alongside Sunkin to further deliver on Highett Common’s net-zero ambitions, with its in-house design and procurement team sourcing internal and external materials and products that reduce energy consumption and provide ability to rely on green electricity.

“Solar panels will be incorporated in each of the precinct’s buildings to meet the project’s net-zero targets, meaning each residence will be able to access green electricity. This will also extend to public and private amenity, with plans for lighting in the communal areas and new public library to have the ability to generate solar power.

“We will also use thermally insulated windows and door systems throughout the project, which have been specifically developed for its size and scale. This will improve the energy efficiency of windows and doors, especially in areas with differing external and internal temperatures.

“This reduces the need for residents to heavily rely on heating or cooling, thereby reducing electricity consumption in the homes and communal spaces,” says Spiro Mirgiannis, Director at SK Construction.

The construction delivery of Highett Common will also conform to Tier 1 ISO standards across Environmental, OH&S and Quality Management Systems. SK Construction has also developed a specific waste management plan to assist in achieving the project’s sustainability targets, with a certified waste management contractor in place to ensure at least 80 per cent recycled content can be effectively used.

During the construction program, SK Construction will work alongside Sunkin, Clarke Hopkins Clarke, Tract Consultants and Bayside City Council to maintain and preserve native flora and fauna within the site’s 3-hectare conservation area.
