Demolition of the existing buildings located at the site of iCo Richmond was successfully completed late in 2020, leaving the site ready for construction in the new year.

Upon returning in 2021, piling works commenced and are now almost complete site wide – as are the strip & pad footings.

Maben Group is excited to continue working with Wilmac Properties throughout the development and together completing a successful, high quality build!

Our team have done another amazing job at Essendon Fields, with the Volkswagen Training Facility now complete!

The Volkswagen team have kicked off their fitout with the completion of the external signage.

The successful completion of the Volkswagen Training Facility, along with the purpose built training facility for Porsche Cars Australia completed in October 2020, takes the Maben Group + Essendon Fields project tally to seven.

Well done team.

The busy commercial office project is quickly moving upward.

The focus remains on moving the structure up to enable the lower ground areas to be stripped out and high level services rough-in can begin.

Concrete is on track, with the final pours of Level 2 complete and installation of the multi-level perimeter safety screens underway.

The construction of Woodlea Town Centre has had strong progress during January and February. Externally, the feature timber pavilion, gold cladding and external bluestone & granite paving are all coming together nicely and provide a glimpse of how the development will look upon completion.

Internally, works continue with the main mall finishes – including barestone cladding and feature timber which run through from the external canopy – and specialist lighting almost complete, giving the building a real wow factor.

A great work team!

It is with great pleasure that we share Albert Street has won the $15M – $20M category in the Excellence in Construction of Commercial Buildings at the 2020 Master Builders Victoria Excellence in Construction Awards!

Congratulations and thank you to our team, and a big thank you to Cremorne Properties Pty Ltd for all their assistance during last year’s judging.

Great effort team EastCo – keep up the great work!

What a busy month it’s been for the Porsche & Volkswagen Team at Essendon Fields!

Following the completion of Porsche and associated external works, the focus has been on Volkswagen with linings, painting, joinery, doors, cladding and windows all complete.

With high level works now complete, the floor finishes are underway and the project is on track to be completed by Christmas!

Well done team.

Congratulations to the Highpoint team who have completed the new floor finishes throughout the 14,000m2 site!

It’s been a busy month for the team who also completed the Zone 1 awning. The final feature ceilings to Level 2 and North West Food Court Balustrade are due to be complete in the coming weeks.

Maben Group is pleased to announce the successful completion and launch of Merrifield City today.

It was a pleasure to be a part of another successful project with QIC and NH Architecture, as well as QIC’s JV partners MAB Corporation and GPC.

Maben Group and the Merrifield City team would like to thank all of our hardworking subcontractors that were involved in the project. Without their tireless efforts, this fantastic end result could not have been achieved!
