STAGE 1 DUE FOR COMPLETION EARLY 2017

Rain rain go away! Construction and rain have never been friends, however the team at ADCO Construction are still full steam ahead with Stage 1 of Cranbrook Residences due for completion in early 2017. The neighbouring aged care residence will be opening in just a few months time.

Building One, apartments 101 to 109 (pictured) is leading the charge! The slab has been poured for the first floor. The formwork for the first floor of Building Two, apartments 201 to 208 is constructed and hot on the heels of Building One. Building Three, apartments 301 to 307 officially has a ground floor!

Formwork is complete for the structural walls to the ground level from the basement level. Building Three will also be home to the Café and Reception area. If you have visited the display suite recently, you will have noticed the pond has been drained and cleared of all material. The pond is currently being re-profiled and will be 3m deep in the central areas when the works are completed. The works also involve landscaping around the pond and the installation of two water movement devices to move the water around the pond area. It is envisaged that these works will be completed by October/November 2016 and the pond will be refilled with water. New street lights on Fairway Drive have been installed and the main service connection is imminent.

Stage 1 Construction Well Underway

With construction now well underway at Cranbrook Residences, Stage 1, residents were excited this month to meet in the display suite for a catch up drink, check up on the construction site and to get an update on progress to date. Cranbrook Care is confident at this stage that construction will be complete
by the end of first quarter 2017, with the roof to Building 1 expected to be on by the end of July, Building 2 by August and Building 3 by September 2016.

Campbell Meldrum, Executive Director at Cranbrook Care, said that unless there were factors beyond their control, the completion of Stage 1 is scheduled for end of March 2017. Campbell also gave residents a sneak peek at the sketches and finishes for the reception area, cafe, library, multi-purpose room, arts room, cinema, fitness centre and lift lobbies as they enter the final stages of design development.

Residents were excited to set eyes on the finishes boards and gain a better understanding how some of the services and facilities will work throughout the residences such as the security setup, basement area layouts and operation of the café and kitchen areas. With the buildings taking shape over the
next few months, we will continue to provide updates to residents at each stage of the
construction process.
