The façade cladding is well underway around the new gym tenancy on the ground level.

On level 1, the new childcare tenancy is progressing well with aluminium window and doors frames installed and plaster currently going up on walls. The external concrete planters have been poured for the childcare outdoor area.

Aldi is complete and back open for trade.

Following the pulverisation of the asphalt, the subgrade has been stripped back to the capping layer and re-compacted prior to having 1900 cubic metres brought into site to build up to the correct levels ready for footings.

Footings, including the internal inground services are now complete.

The Hillsong Church project at Knoxfield is now approaching completion.

Most trades have completed their works and commissioning of services has commenced. Externally signage is being installed, landscaping has been completed and car parks are ready to use.

The existing airside pavements have been pulverised allowing the civil contractor to commence preparing the subbase.

Rough in for in-ground services has also commenced with concrete footings scheduled for next week.

Maben and all subcontractors have worked very hard in the past few weeks to reach several key milestones of the project.

The second largest portion of the project – the gym tenancy – has been handed over to the fit out contractors to commence their works.

The team have constructed a new shopfront for the Reject Shop and the store is now back open for trade.

A new shopfront has been completed for Aldi which involved new structural steel, glazing and roller shutter doors. The store has been handed over to the fit out contractors.

On the Childcare level the roof has been laid and wall framing has begun. In the external areas the concrete seating and large concrete planters have been formed up and are now ready to be poured.

Great progress team – well done!
