Construction specs

Think Ockham and you possibly think brick. It’s no secret we favour classic, timeless materials, partly because they’re enduring and low maintenance, partly because they look great.

Our buildings are just as beautiful on the inside. Enter an Ockham apartment and you immediately notice the high ceilings, over-height internal doors… the elegant, fully equipped kitchens. But it’s the little things — our fabled attention to detail in every room — that make the Ockham difference.
