With the handover of the building envelope less than a month away, things are ramping up at Highlands with the cladding progressing at a great pace and due for completion this week.

Brickwork to the north and west facades is complete, with the east and south elevations to also finish this week along with the brick cleaning.

Lock up of the building will soon be completed with the installation of glass and auto doors coming to a close.

The first coat of paint has given the building some life as the timber and monument colours begin, and footpath preparation has commenced with the first lot of paving to be poured to the buildings north boundary this week.

The plant deck and roof is nearing completion which will then allow handrails to come down by the end of this week. The cladding contractors will then finish off the remaining capping’s, flashings and details.
