Situated in one of Perth’s most sought-after locations, Mirvac Latitude Leighton Beach is a unique seaside development offering 249 one, two and three-bedroom oceanfront apartments.
Ideally positioned adjacent to North Fremantle’s famous Leighton Beach, the prized real estate addition is only 15-kilometres from the Perth CBD and just 5.5-kilometres from the heart of cosmopolitan Fremantle.
With completion anticipated for late 2017, Latitude’s breathtaking ocean views, pool, gymnasium, and architect-designed internal courtyard are destined to qualify it as one of Western Australia’s most prestigious addresses.
The perfect alternative to traditional plumbing solutions
Viega Propress was used for hot and cold-water distribution to service all 249 apartments in sizes varying from DN15-100mm. Hot water delivery was supplied from two central energy plants located on the roof of the new buildings. Viega Propress Gas was also used on the copper installation for gas supply to each of the luxury apartments.
Pipeline Hydraulics was tasked with carrying out all plumbing works associated with the development’s sewage, storm water, water supply, and gas supply. The company’s Operations Manager Mark Sadler says that the Viega Propress system provided the perfect alternative to traditional plumbing solutions.
“Originally the tender docs called for all copper work to be welded or brazed, but we tried to steer clear of that so we wouldn’t have to organise hot works permits,” he explains.
“So, we looked for an alternative and Viega was there to help. Using their products meant we didn’t have to drag a big oxy set around and then spend time actually welding each individual fitting. It saved so much time. I reckon we got the job done three times faster than had we welded. It’s the first time we’ve used Viega. We’ll definitely use it down the track on other projects.”
