Byte Construct completed Stage 6 of the Karrakatta Mausoleum project comprising a total of 788 crypts including all associated services and site works. Northerly worked closely with Walter Hunter and Penny Watson Architects and the Metropolitan Cemeteries Board to deliver a twin crypt prototype using innovative construction techniques.
The 788 crypts are housed in a total of 13 blocks including a chapel, two family rooms, a facilities room, amenities block, solare power generator and rainwater collection tanks.
Key issues during construction included working within a sensitive area such as cemetery grounds, protection of existing trees, noise management and traffic management while maintaining a safe working environment.
