Block F - The final painting work will be completed which will then allow builder defecting to commence.

As mentioned in our last update, we encountered some delays with civil works, however we are pleased to share that all approvals and permits have now been received, with service proving and radar scanning being undertaken ahead of excavation works. In the next month we will look to lock in a date for a second hard hat tour likely, in March.

October 2022 Construction Update


28 October 2022


Stage 1

What has happened since the last update:

Block C (11, 13, 15, 17, 19, 21 & 23 Khartoum Street, 38 & 40 Bendigo Street) – The brickwork and window installation is nearly complete, and façade works to level 4 are underway. The massive skylights to each townhouse have been installed, and the voids between levels are starting to be opened up, revealing the vast the huge amount of sunlight which can now beam through the stair voids of each townhouse (and walk-in-robes to those on Khartoum Street). Internally, construction is progressing very well. All of the services rough-in, insulation and plasterboard sheeting are complete. Painting, tiling and stair installation has even commenced in 38 & 40 Bendigo Street terraces.

Block F (6A, 6B, 8A, 8B & 10 Khartoum Street) – The external scaffolding has now been removed, revealing the lovely brick façade and balconies, bathing in the northern sun. The majority of façade works are complete, with only small touch-up works remaining. Painting has commenced on the walls, the stairs have been installed, and tiling is underway. The skylights have also been installed and are very impressive.


What is happening next:

Block C - Over the coming month, you will start to see less and less scaffold outside of the townhouses, with our major external works coming to a close. The Balmain & Co team will now shift their focus to the internal fitout. The joinery is starting to arrive on-site, and once rooms have received their first coats of paint, the installation of joinery will commence.

Block F - The flooring is soon to be laid, and joinery installation will follow shortly after. Landscaping works have commenced, with the rear courtyard slabs being poured, and back fences being built.

Overall, Stage 1 townhouses are progressing well. Balmain & Co continue to impress us with their quality of delivery and attention to detail. However, we are experiencing some issues with civil works (in-ground infrastructure and road) due to delays with Council and Authorities. We are currently working to determine how this will impact completion. We are urgently working through this issue now and we will provide an update as soon as we can.

Stage 2

Block D1 (149, 151 & 153 Stawell Street, 12 & 14 Kennedy Avenue) - Block D1 is rapidly rising from the ground. The structure is progressing well, with the ground and level 1 slabs complete, and level 2 ready for the concrete to be poured. The structure is tracking ahead of the program, with all the concrete pouring expected to be complete earlier.

Block A (135, 137, 139, 141, 143, 145 & 147 Stawell Street, 2, 4, 6, 8 & 10 Kennedy Avenue) – Block A is closely following Block D1. The in-ground services are installed, slabs formed up, and reinforcement in, ready for pouring. Like Block A, the core concrete structure will be completed promptly, revealing the true form of the new homes lining Stawell Street and Kennedy Avenue.

Block C (11, 13, 15, 17, 19, 21 & 23 Khartoum Street, 38 & 40 Bendigo Street) – The structural steel and framing for level 3 has commenced with the first four townhouses having the top floor framed out.

Block F (6A, 6B, 8A, 8B & 10 Khartoum Street) – We have continued to power ahead with the brick work now 90% complete. The services rough in is well advanced, with the electricals, and heating/cooling systems complete on the first couple of townhouses, with plumbing not far behind.

June 2022 Construction Update


15 June 2022


Stage 1

What has happened since the last update:

Block C (11, 13, 15, 17, 19, 21 & 23 Khartoum Street, 38 & 40 Bendigo Street) – On level 2, we have completed the wall framing to allow for the installation of the structural steel, which will form the floor of the third level. The ground floor, bedroom, laundry and garage framing has also commenced and is expected to be finished by mid to late June.

Block F (6A, 6B, 8A, 8B & 10 Khartoum Street) – The top floor framing is complete and installed the roof. Now that the structure is taking shape, we are seeing beautiful streams of light filtering through the terrace homes from the spaces where the expansive skylights will be installed. The brickwork on the western wall has commenced, and they will work their way around to the back over the next few weeks. The plumbing rough-in has started on the terrace homes to the west of the site, and this work will run consecutively, working towards the terrace homes on the western side of the site. The windows arrived on site this week, and the first of these will start being installed over the next few weeks. The window installation will take place gradually, with some to be installed closer to completion to allow for adequate ventilation of the interior of the terrace homes while works take place. 


What is happening next:

Block C - The top floor frame will be erected in early to mid-June, with the roofing to be installed later in the month. The ground floor and first-floor framing will continue, ready for the windows to arrive later in the month. 

Block F - The windows will begin to be installed, and the services rough-in will continue on the ground floor before the plumbers and electricians head down the site in a west to east direction. 

Once the structural works are complete and the internal fit-out commences, our next major milestones will be once the structural works are complete. We are currently working to finalise the details of our next event, which will be our Hard Hat Tours. This will involve an escorted walk through your terrace home with a member of the team (fully dressed in PPE, of course!) to get a first-hand look at how your new home is progressing. We hope to have more details on this event in the coming weeks, so keep an eye out in your inbox for more information.

April 2022 Construction Update


4 April 2022

Welcome to the first Gramercy terraces construction update

It has been a busy start to the year with both Townhouse blocks bounding out of the ground.

Block C (11, 13, 15, 17, 19, 21 & 23 Khartoum Street, 38 & 40 Bendigo Street) is progressing well. All the inground services were completed in early March, with the ground floor and first level slabs also complete. The formwork used to support the structure while the rest of the slabs are being poured is being erected and the moment, with the final two levels in April. The formwork team has begun stripping out the ground floor to allow the steel frames to go in and allow for the rough graduation of services throughout the building. These homes are due to be completed by late Feb 2023.

Block F (6A, 6B, 8A, 8B & 10 Khartoum Street) is powering along, with the ground and first level slabs also completed, with the remaining floors to be poured over the next month. The strip out of the form work will start in the second week of April, allowing for the steel frames to be installed after the Easter Break. These five homes are still on track to be completed by December 2022.
