‘The Nicholson’ Apartments
Located on the former East Coburg Train Depot, The Nicholson apartments is a unique addition to an already diverse community. Developer, VicUrban’s has a long standing commitment to creating vibrant and affordable communities. The Nicholson is a new village style development comprised of both private and affordable community rental apartments.
The core of the development is sustainability, with every apartment achieving an average 6-star energy rating. It was this sustainable goal that led to the appointment of Unitised Building (UB) as the contractor of choice. Established in 2008, UB burst into the Australian construction industry with the revolutionary ‘UB system’ of modular high density residential construction. Through a carefully executed blend of onsite and offsite construction programs, UB can deliver higher quality buildings in less than half the time of traditional concrete methods of construction.
