Construction Progress Update - March 2019
Over the past several summer months, we have been constructing the foundations of the new apartment complex. Piling works are now nearing completion, with the expected completion date being the end of April 2019.
The completion of the piling works has taken five months longer to complete due to the additional length required for all piling foundation to extend into solid bed rock. These piling processes have been completed under the professional guidance of a great consultant team being Tonkin & Taylor Engineer and BGT Structural Engineer, with Decmil Construction - main contractor and CLL - piling contractor.
Foundation works at the top of piles (capping beams) have commenced in January 2019 and are progressing well along the perimeter of the building. These works will be completed in May/June 2019 forming the foundation for the upper structures and allowing for the excavation process to commence for the formation of the double storey basement which will commence toward the end of the year - the next dry summer season.
Timber retaining structures have now commenced along the western boundary of the new external carpark areas and will be completed by the end of April 2019. This will allow for the excavation of the new carpark areas towards the end of the year - the next dry weather season. New services ducts are also being laid currently within the carpark retaining wall areas allowing for future services to enter the new apartment areas such as power, gas, comms, water, etc.
Over the winter months, we will start constructing Building A (first block near the park) commencing with foundation works, then underground services, precast, etc. We plan to commence these new structural works in May/June 2019.
From all the team involved in Parkside Residences project, we would like to thank you for your patience and support and we wish you and your loved ones a wonderful summer.
