Hello again everyone, good to be back…I can’t believe its October already! Where has this year gone?
All of our new projects are well and truly under way and progressing well. Orange has been the most challenging at this stage with the rock on site. We have had several very large jack hammers on site for the past 6 weeks and we have been shaking up the neighbourhood in an attempt to break it down. It hardest rock I have ever encountered. To put it into comparison the concrete on our roads is 32mpa. The strength of the rock is 247mpa. We originally started with a 30 tonne machine which was taking too long and we since have changed to a 45 tonne excavator and we are just starting to get somewhere… I look forward to seeing the back of that machine, as are some of the surrounding residents.
We have started construction on our villas in Townsville, Toowoomba, Armidale, Tamworth as well so we look forward to having some new residents move into those villas prior to Christmas.
I hope to be starting some new villages in Lismore, Rockhampton and Gunnedah before Christmas with some further villages coming on line next year.
Until next time, take care.
