‘Iona Building’ project update - November 2021

With the limitations for onsite (vaccinated) workers now lifting the pace of progress on-site is picking up steam again.   

Searle Brothers building contractors advise that they are continuously reviewing the construction program and have indicated that with additional trades on site the program could be brought back to a pre-Christmas handover (fingers crossed).

 The following provides a brief summary of the status of the project: 

  • Painters to commence mid-November
  • Bricklayer to be completed by the end of November
  • Services Fit-off to be completed by the end of November
  • External Works and Carpet to be commenced in December.
  • COVID trade limitations on site are now lifted. All trades need to be double vaccinated to have unrestricted access.

Other than the construction, the classroom equipment required has been ordered and/or received and landscaping plans are also underway.
