The team at Colac Plaza have been humming along down in south west Victoria throughout June.

The Coles box has hit another milestone with the installation of roller shutters & external doors enabling the team to lock-up.

Internally, all service trades have substantially progressed through their rough-in. 75% of the cool rooms have been installed and the internal perimeter wall framing and plastering is sitting at 70% complete. Offices to Coles have been sheeted with ceiling installation to follow shortly in this area.

Back of house block work walls are well underway with completion expected this week. The first of 3 staged pours to the infill slab has been poured in the back of house area, with the remaining 2 pours to the cool rooms and prep areas to go. Grinding of the polished slab is 90% on the first pass, with focus concentrated to the refrigeration case zones ahead of the first delivery last week.

Outside the Coles box there has been plenty of action. The structural steel completion to the tenancies of Building A has triggered service rough-in, shop front aluminium frames and glazing installation, roofing wire to be laid and box gutters to be installed. Roofing to Building A will be installed this week.

Building B has recently had precast panels erected and the structural steel installation commenced on Friday.

Civil preparation works have benched the large culvert adjacent to the loading bay, and this is now ready to go for the commencement of the detailed raft slab excavation this week. The team are gearing up to decamp from the site sheds in a fortnight and will relocate into tenancies to free up the carpark area for civil works.
