The General Apartments – Project Progress

FMSA recently designed 4 new apartments for The General at the Mt Hotham Ski Resort. This accommodation, with spectacular views over the Dargo Valley, had to be ready for visitors before the start of the 2010 ski season.

The 8 separate prefabricated modules were installed in one day using a 200+ tonne crane with a 40 metre reach. The crane only reached part of the way so the end units had to be pushed into place on a railway system. And not only did the units have to be craned over the General Store, they had to be positioned carefully one on top of the other.

And the successful day on site was topped off by a lovely rainbow which certainly adds a bit of a wow factor to the already amazing views.
