About the project

The stylish REVA apartment, office and retail complex, nestled beside the Swan River at 5 Harper Terrace, South Perth, has recently been completed by Western Australia’s largest award-winning apartment developer, the Finbar Group, in collaboration with construction company Hanssen Pty Ltd.

This superb location, boasting river and Perth city views, called for a window suite that would enhance each of the building’s unique visual aspects, while matching the meticulous fit-out of this exceptional boutique development of 41 one-, two- and three-bedroom apartments along with 18 retail and office suites.

The REVA nine-level complex hugs the South Perth foreshore, which lies just 120 metres away. Within this visually breathtaking setting, it was essential to choose window suites that would accentuate the architect’s ambitions and enable every resident and tenant to delight in their surroundings.

The clean modern design showcases the range of Capral window systems installed throughout the project, chosen for their enviable function, local supply, superior design and exceptional thermal qualities.

The WA-based construction group Hanssen Pty Ltd, having a long-standing relationship with Capral, nominated the Capral sub-frame system for the project to enable a faster, more efficient build, coupled with greater on-the-job flexibility. Hanssen also commented on the benefits of working with a local supplier, and the increased reassurance of working with a tried and tested system. The support on offer from the Capral technical support team was noted as an added advantage.

Capral’s sub-frame system, featuring deep internal pockets, fully complements Hanssen’s unique build system by allowing for greater tolerances than would otherwise be available, The Capral system enabled all windows to be prefabricated, again contributing to speeding up the build schedule.

Every individual aspect of the REVA development has been designed to take full advantage of the unique location, with the Capral window systems making a strong contribution to the project’s commercial success.

REVA Apartments spare no detail when it comes to superior specifications, from lofty ceiling heights to premium appliances. The Capral window suites used throughout this landmark development form a crucial component of this glittering residential jewel.

The window suites’ sleek appearance works in synchronicity with the architects’ intent, visually complementing the painted precast concrete wall façade and lightweight cladding. Together, these contemporary features aesthetically define the entire development.

The Capral products installed in the REVA complex extend to 2600mm windows and sliding doors, featuring contemporary powder-coated aluminium frames. Acoustic and thermal performance has been heightened, with the specification of doubled glazed windows and energy efficient glazing throughout the project.  This balanced combination optimally introduces sought-after views of the nearby foreshore and skyline, while keeping each resident in absolute comfort.

A range of REVA’s’ unique design features pay tribute to Capral’s ability to offer the ultimate in design flexibility. These premium Capral window suites gel with REVA Apartments’ inventive utilisation of space, natural light, ventilation and unforgettable views to create a luxurious sanctuary.
