CONSTRUCTION UPDATE - NOVEMBER, 2018

We are pleased to report that despite our builder having to deal with delays associated with inclement weather (which has been more than usual over the last few weeks) the following key milestones have been achieved as we turn for Christmas:

  • The perimeter concrete capping beam that defines the basement around the site has been poured;
  • Detailed excavation is well underway, with the site fully excavated down to the base of the first basement level (LB1);
  • Approximately 240 pile stressing anchors have been installed to every second pile (or ‘hard’ pile) around the perimeter of the site,  2m below the capping beam at basement level 1 (LB1); this allows the further excavation of the site down to the second row of anchors which is just above the base of the second basement level (LB2);
  • Vertical anchors have been installed through the capping beam in the north east corner of the site, where it abuts the future development at 1 St Georges Avenue; and
  • Installation of the external stormwater works is well underway, with approximately 80m of 170m lineal metres of 300mm diameter PVC pipe installed along St Georges Avenue and a number of stormwater pits installed.

The next few weeks leading up to the Christmas shutdown period will be very busy on site, with the builder working towards achieving a number of significant milestones. Some of these milestones include:

  • Installation of the crane base and tower crane which is scheduled to occur on the 19th of December;
  • Excavation of 50% of the site (western side) down to the bottom of the second basement level (LB2);
  • Commencement of the installation of the second row of pile stressing anchors at the second basement level (LB2);
  • Commencement of in-ground services (including the installation of hydraulic pits and pipework below ground);
  • Pouring of some pad footings and the excavation of the structure core which provides the main structural stability for the building; and
  • Completion of the external stormwater works.

We look forward to providing you a further update on the exciting progress of the works early in the New Year.

In the meantime, we trust you will enjoy this short video presentation as we showcase the works we have completed over the past few months as we progress our way out of the ground at Centrepiece Residences.

The builder has completed the guide wall system and is currently installing the basement retention system, with 92 of the 525 contiguous piles installed to date.

With some luck with the weather, we should have the basement retention system complete towards the end of September. This will allow the large bulk excavation to commence.

We have also seen solid progress with the major authority services diversion works and connection works. The sewer line has been successfully diverted around the site, with these works been completed on the 3rd of August.

The stormwater connection works have also commenced, with completion of this expected in September. The build time for this project is approximately 18 months.

Demolition is complete and the site is being prepared for basement piling which is due to commence in the second week of July 18.

There will be over 525 contiguous piles to be installed at an average of 12 meters in length over the next 8 weeks. These piles will retain the double basement during excavation works.

The major sewer diversion works are also tracking well and are scheduled for completion in early July 18.

The development team is excited for the months ahead as the retention and excavation works mobilise on site. You will see some major activity over the coming months with large piling (drilling) rigs on site as these works commence.

DECEMBER 2017

Construction Update - December, 2017

Thank you again for your patience as we finalise the very last stages of our construction program with our appointed builders for Centrepiece Residences.

Read more

This project has been a little trickier to mobilise than others and we are well aware that the delays have been extremely frustrating for everyone. However, we can assure you that we are doing everything within our capabilities to speed up the process during the construction stage to make up for lost time.

We are pleased to report that the display suite has been stripped and ready for demolition. The delay for demolition commencing was attributed to the abolishment of services including Gas, Electrical and Water Meters with authorities that took over 4 months to process. These have now been all terminated and removed from the site.

We have also completed the removal of all asbestos in the buildings pursuant to the environmental auditors? report in preparation for demolition.

Demolition has finally commenced on site with the program showing all residential buildings demolished this side of the New Year. The Commercial building on the corner of Centre Road, and East Boundary Road is scheduled for demolition in the 2nd week of January 2018. Once construction commences we will arrange for quarterly updates as we get underway with building Centrepiece Residences.
