The success of any five-star project is not only dependent on the design and location the quality of the construction is also vital. The Star of the Sea complex was built by Multiplex Constructions, a multi-disciplined construction and engineering company that specialises in large-scale residential and commercial developments.

Project manager Murray Gregory says the company designed and engineered many solutions for the project, which was extremely complex.

"Every floor plate in every building is different," he says. "With no repetition of structural elements, the work was slower and more difficult. There were also a lot of embellishments built into the structure. These decorative elements include mouldings on columns and balcony soffits, and built-in planter boxes. The intensive detailing, which helps define the complex, was one of many intricate jobs."

Gregory says special features engineered by Multiplex included the vaulted ceiling of the heated indoor pool, which incorporates computerised fibreoptic lighting.
