OVOLO, South Yarra

Argo Group

One of our more recent project appointments, Ovolo is a 123-room hotel in South Yarra, Melbourne. An exciting development by Argo Group, the property is being delivered via design and construct head contract with Hickory Group.

Located in South Yarra, Toorak Road is the main thoroughfare to this bustling, upscale suburb. Full of boutique shops, art galleries and bistros, the area is also conveniently positioned within walking distant of direct rail links to Flinders Street station.

The hotel will be operated by Internationally acclaimed Ovolo Hotels Group, with a brand perfectly positioned for the trendy boutique and life-style market in Melbourne. The property will offer 6 levels of hotel living, alongside an urban inspired break-out space and café. The brand aims to amalgamate with local culture, offering up this location as a new local hang out, as well as a cool place to stay.

We are performing the role of Superintendent under the contract, overseeing full turnkey delivery. Existing offices and retail will undergo demolition, exposing a super prime high street location for this innovative construction project. The project will benefit from both the Hickory Build Systems (HBS) and Sync bathrooms, for a build of the highest quality.

Construction Assignments’ contribution to hotel project delivery teams is significant. Our hotel project experience is a differentiator in a region that has seen relatively few new hotels developed since the 1990’s. We manage hotel design briefs to guide consultants and project stakeholders with their respective contributions and responsibilities. We have in depth understanding of a hotel’s front and back of house elements and the requirements to maximise operational, serviceability and buildability factors.
