Mulpha Group (Mulpha) is one of Australia’s most experienced real estate and hospitality investors, committed to creating extraordinary places. INTREC partnered with Mulpha to deliver a new generation of Luxury  Townhouses to the Norwest district, ‘Essentia’. The new estate of medium density homes brings a level of complexity, elegance, and innovation to the area. INTREC completed Stage 2 of this residential development,  which consists of the construction of 15 new-age townhouses. INTREC was the lead construction contractor on the project, overseeing the completion of all building processes throughout this major development.

Essentia is the first large scale residential development in Australia to have fully integrated solar and battery storage solutions for residents. Incorporated into the design, each home features 12 solar panels and in-built smart living technology, including a home battery storage system designed to reduce power costs, plus rainwater recycling and double glazing.

The state-of-the-art design is inclusive of voice controlled home automation compatible with Amazon’s Alexa or Google Home, and features circadian rhythm lighting systems. This advanced technology has proven to be a more energy efficient and cost-reductive environmental solution to living. Each individual house in this project has been completed systematically, allowing different trades to work on separate aspects of the project simultaneously.

This process demanded a detailed and well considered programme, which was implemented to allow for long lead times on products and adequate time for all trades to complete their works. INTREC are extremely proud to be involved in developing smarter living solutions and providing infrastructure to sustainably improve quality-of-life for future generations. The level of detail conceptualised by Mulpha has made for an interesting yet challenging project.

This significant project has strengthened the professional relationship between INTREC and Mulpha, leading to Mulpha engaging INTREC in an Early Contractor Involvement capacity to finalise the design elements for Stage 3.
