During 2019 we have shared many photos and updates that feature concrete and steel and rightly so. Up until the end of May, the building of Highpoint has incorporated approximately 6,150 tonne of poured concrete from Hunter Ready Mixed Concrete and 300 structural panels from Hunter Precast! However, there is so much more to it than concrete and steel!
Looking at where we sit in our development timeline, we are nearing the end of the structural items like steel and concrete and approaching the period of internal fit outs, finishes and fixtures; crafting the details of the soon to be homes of Highpoint.
In May we commenced ‘fit-out’. ‘Fit out’ of the internal structural elements starts with the framing for internal walls. Once framing is complete ‘roughing in’ of services takes place. For this our GWH site management team brings in trades that will ensure all services are built in, ready for final connection later in the build. Electrical, plumbing, mechanical - think air-conditioning systems and fire protection systems are now all underway with installation. Once services are finalised on each level gyprocking of the walls is completed.
Pushing ahead our fit-out teams reached the end of May with level 1 being all but ready to commence gyprock installation, the final piece of the internal fit-out process.
We also saw the concrete pour of level 7. Looking ahead, when we wrap up the first half of 2019 later this month, we expect to have poured our level 10 concrete slab - with only 7 more pours to go until we top out, we will be over half way!
Installation of all windows on the lower levels also commenced, these are supplied by one of our vertically integrated group of companies, Frontline Aluminium. Frontline Aluminium delivers for Highpoint a locally manufactured, Australian designed and made custom product. By the end of the month, the Hunter Install team had made good progress, having fully framed levels 1 and 2.
June is the month internal fit-outs ramp up. The schedule has us completing levels 1 & 2, plus getting started on 3! A big finish to wrap up the first half of 2019.
