This medium size development consisted of ten townhouses. Nine of these were two storey whilst the tenth was single storey and designed for wheelchair access.

The Townhouses were built on raft slabs with timber cladding and brick external finish and metal roofing construction. Quality finishes on the townhouses included maple finished staircases, Kempass flooring, soft carpet in bedrooms, high quality Laminex kitchens with stone bench tops, quality fixtures, fittings and paints throughout.

The project experienced numerous challenges largely due to its location and design. These challenges included:

  • Tight access.
  • A steep slope.
  • Bushfire zoning up to BAL29.
  • Tree protection zones for native trees.
  • Modification and maintenance throughout the project of the rear creek and surrounding shrubs
  • Over 100m of retaining walls up to 4 metres in height.
  • Large capacity on site water tanks,
  • Approximately 150m of swales, and major modifications to council culverts in addition to the original stormwater plans.
  • Approximately 1500m2 of driveways
  • Kilometres of cabling and services in underground infrastructure.
