The construction process involves several stages. The first stage is to prepare the site. This involves the disconnection of services, demolition of any existing dwellings, and some preliminary plumbing. If the Development involves subdivision, each new lot needs to be prepared with electrical, water, gas, and waste infrastructure. This typically involves connecting to the preexisting infrastructure and establishing a body corporate to manage the shared utilities.
The house and land lots of this Development require the construction of required infrastructure: a connecting road, footpaths, stormwater drainage, sewerage, water reticulation, electrical supply, and NBN internet.
Next is construction of the townhouses for Stage 2. This involves the creation of a concrete slab as a foundation, followed by the erection of the framing and roof trusses. The next step is to build up the exterior or facade of the properties. Electrical wiring, plumbing, and other piping is built into the walls before insulation is installed and the interiors are constructed. Flooring is installed, as is the tiling in wet areas. Exterior doors, garage doors, and windows are fitted, making it possible for the building to be ‘locked up’ for the first time. Finally, tapware, baths, sinks, mirrors, and vanity items are installed.
Before handover occurs we inspect the properties with the building manager and identify any issues which need to be fixed. Once those issues are fixed, the keys are handed over to us.
