With all buildings being ‘topped off’ and tradespeople working in their herds to try and complete the apartments, we would like to provide you with an update on the progression:

– Internal framing work and installation of major services has now commenced

Building E Campbell: (what remains of the old Harbord Diggers):
– Demolition has commenced with stripping of all internal walls;
– Major demolition to start pre-Christmas.

The builders have confirmed they will be working through Christmas, taking only public holiday days off. Of course, there are factors beyond the builders control that may affect the completion date. Rain, high winds, and over 35-degree temperatures are all key elements that could affect work on site. Although there is an increase of work being carried out on the internal of the buildings we must remember that landscaping and waterproofing of external areas is very much affected by these elements.

Every day there is a hive of activity on site, with the building growing and changing before our eyes. The most noticeable changes externally have been on Evans (Building D) and Madigan (Building F) as they strive to reach their finished height. Evans was ‘topped out’ last week and Madigan is getting ready to have the floor of Level 3 poured before the week is out. 

In addition to what is seen on the outside, a flurry of activity is happening inside, each and every day. We have seen floor to ceiling doors, internal walls, kitchens, wardrobes, bathroom tiling & even skylights starting to be installed; not to mention the beautiful sandstone building exterior on Saunders & Reynolds Buildings. Excitement all over!

We hope you enjoy the following images taken around the site today, capturing all angles of our marvellous development.
