With the weather clearing, stage one is progressing well.
All townhouses are internally complete with the finishing touches to the external façades also nearing completion. Townhouse and public space landscaping has concluded with the final tidy up underway. Backyard and public area fencing has been installed and internal roads and entries are complete. The public swimming pool fencing is up and the pool equipment room and public toilet are progressing nicely. The BBQ area is now paved and ready for the BBQ, tables and seats to be installed. Aside from the final layer of asphalt, civil works have been completed. The footpath behind the retaining wall that runs from Helm Avenue up to the bus stop on Bruce Rd will be poured in the coming weeks. Stage one will be settling in the first half of September with pre-settlement inspections currently underway.
Stage two is well and truly underway with all plastering, first and second floor external cladding, render and paint completed. Internal painting and tiling is now well advanced in all townhouses with the installation of carpet scheduled to commence in the coming weeks. External concrete driveways and paving have been completed and the installation of garage doors continues to progress. The installation of retaining walls and swimming pool tiling has commenced while paving to the BBQ area is nearing completion. The civil works for stage two is complete with only the final wearing course of asphalt to be poured. We expect settlement of stage two to commence in late September, just in time for the spring/summer season.
Roofs have now been installed on all townhouses. With external cladding, render and paint now finished on half of the townhouses, the remainder are progressing nicely. Hanging of plaster continues to progress with many townhouses now completed. External scaffolding will be removed once painting concludes. Civil works continues to advance in stage three.
Civil works are continuing with retaining wall construction nearing completion. All main services to the properties have now been installed. The road preparation and kerbing is complete and Base Civils hope to lay the first layer of asphalt in the coming weeks before handing over to Edgepoint Homes for the build.
As with Stage 4, civil works continue to progress. In-road property services have been installed. Townhouse underfloor service installation has commenced in preparation for floor slab pouring.
We hope everyone has a lovely week and we look forward to updating you on construction at Harbourside Terraces every couple of months in 2016.
