December Construction Update

Welcome to the first Windermere Construction Update.

We are delighted to share with you the progress on site and provide you with development insights as we build this new masterplanned community from the ground up.

Over the last four months, we have been busy preparing the foundations for Stages 1 to 4, which will accommodate 200 lots.

Bulk earthworks

Earthworks are the first construction works to have commenced on site and involve the removal and stockpiling of topsoil and excavation of waterways. Fill works are also undertaken to provide the right surface levels and a firm foundation for your new home.

Bulk earthworks started in early October and Stages 1 and 2 are now complete, which enables the commencement of sewer construction for those stages. Bulk earthworks in Stages 3 and 4 are scheduled for completion in December 2018.

Civil works

Civil works includes the installation of all services such as electricity, gas, potable and recycled water, sewer and fibre optics into the ground to make sure they are available prior to you building your new home.

Following bulk earthworks and drainage works, we will commence building the community’s first roads. Road base, kerb, footpaths and driveways will be built first, followed by the placement of road asphalt.

This will occur once earthworks, sewer and drainage works are concluded, with the balance of civil construction works scheduled to commence in early 2019.

External branch sewer

In partnership with City West Water, we have recently completed a tender process and have awarded a sewer contractor to commence construction of a large branch sewer along Greens Road. The contractor is due to commence this week.

The sewer forms part of the infrastructure required to service the entire Windermere estate.
