Project Accolades

  • This stunning precinct belays all the challenges presented to and met by our team throughout the uncertainty of Covid including the 1st ever shutdown of the industry while still completing within an exceptionally tight time frame was undoubtably a huge factor in the overall success. The team’s ability to dig deep, pull together to deliver this project and build strong relationships with all stakeholders was what set the bar across the project. The rapid rate of construction and size of the scope saw our team working across all 7 buildings and the site infrastructure concurrently while maintaining our impressive safety-first approach.
  • The Vision for this project was
    “To build supportive communities where everyone is welcome. To be committed to providing seniors a blend of well-priced, contemporary apartments and long-term, rental properties, and Minto Gardens is a stellar example of this. The philosophy, respect, acceptance and fairness runs deeply through this project.

Kerfoot are passionate about the work we do and were extremely proud of our achievements on this project.
