Aged care building construction 'on schedule'
Construction of new buildings at a Umina aged care facility is on schedule, according to its chief executive.
"The first month of our construction for the new Jack Aldous House has been on track with the first four weeks been about preparing the site in readiness for the major works to move forward," said Peninsula Villages chief executive Mr Shane Neaves.
"So far the site has been filled to form the building pad, which is at 90 per cent with 75 per cent of the piles installed.
"The lift pit is constructed with waterproofing and backfilling complete.
"The in ground services are underway with hydraulics and electrical complete.
"Detailed footing excavation has commenced to the north western wing; and the steel fixing and slab on ground formwork has commenced.
"We expect that the site will soon look much more exciting as walls, formwork and scaffold are due on site towards the end of May and then we will all start to see the building rise from the ground," Mr Neaves said.
