STAGE one of the Taskers North Fremantle development was recognised at the Master Builders Association Excellence in Construction Awards, with the Falcon building winning Best Apartment Building 2016.

Built by Dempsey Construction WA and designed by Zuideveld Marchant Hur, the six-level building consists of 51 luxuriously appointed apartments, a gymnasium, pool, sauna and an onsite gourmet cafe.

There are also two floors of basement parking, including storerooms.

Dempsey Construction has won the Best Apartment Building for two consecutive years – it was awarded best multi-unit development under $50 million for Bluewater Scarborough in 2015 – and has again created a selection of apartments and villas focused on lifestyle and quality.

“The Falcon building was the first stage of the Taskers residential development and has been finished to the standard specification similar to that of Bluewater,” Taskers developer Gary Dempsey said.

“This level of quality is to be implemented across the remainder of the Taskers development.”

Awarded for the attention to detail and considered design elements, the Falcon building offers the highest standard of acoustic control found in any new multi-unit development in WA.

Double-glazed windows were fitted to commercial frames, along with an acoustic party wall system to rival any other apartment development.

The feedback from residents has been overwhelmingly positive.

“We are overly impressed with the privacy and noise control between apartments,” residents Mandy and Iso D’Amico said.

“Dempsey Construction has gone above and beyond to deliver a truly beautiful home.

“The apartment is of the highest standard and guests have all been highly impressed by the attention to detail and high quality finishes.”

Taskers is setting the bar for apartment living in Perth, with a high level of consideration taken not only for the apartments but also through to the common areas to create a first-class lifestyle for residents.

The smoke-free development, the first of its kind in WA, has up to 3000sq m of manicured gardens complete with alfresco barbecue areas and a solar-heated lap pool.

“Quality workmanship and attention to detail have brought the vision of Taskers to life and we pride ourselves on delivering a premium product,” Mr Dempsey said.

Taskers is at 9 McCabe Street and the apartments are open to view Wednesdays to Fridays noon-3pm and Saturdays and Sundays 11.30am-3pm. n
