The end of the year is fast approaching, and it has been a busy one at Botania.
Below we recap what milestones we have achieved throughout the year and provide an update on the construction progress of your stages.
We cannot believe we are currently selling our final stage with only a few final lots remaining. If you know someone who would like to join the Botania community, tell them to get in quick! You can view our final remaining lots here all with a bonus $5,000 Landscaping Incentive included.
2022 started on a high for Botania with the opening of its first local park, Friendship Place Park. The park has been a welcome addition to the community and a much-loved feature as soon as council gave us the go ahead and the temporary fencing came down. The bright green custom-built tower with two slides and is over 7m high, making it visible around the community, and definitely adds to the excitement as you pull up for a play on the equipment, a kick on the open grassed area, or for a BBQ with friends and family.
Construction work continued around the community and the most memorable was definitely the humongous and seriously coordinated construction effort of the culvert. Within the Botania community, all residents will have access to a picturesque waterway reserve connected to Kororoit Creek. This waterway, running through the centre of the community, inadvertently separates the Botania community into two portions. The culvert, or bridge, will reconnect the halves as it allows water in the waterway to flow underneath, whilst traffic and residents pass over on top. If you missed the culvert update earlier in the year, you can find it here alongside some drone footage of the construction process.
Botania also welcomed its first builder to its Display Village this year with two brand new display homes by award-winning, premier builder, Mimosa Homes. The Botania Display Village will feature 12 homes by 6 builders, with more homes opening next year. If you’d like to find out more information about the two Mimosa display homes, you can visit Saturday to Wednesday or take a sneak peak at the homes here.
Read on below for a stage-by-stage progress report on the works occurring in your community.
Stages 4 & 5
Stages 4 & 5 will be the next stages within the Botania community to welcome new residents who can begin settling and construction of their own homes in the new year.
Currently in the final stages of construction with Kerb and Asphalt works continuing, the layers of the road network are now in place and the construction team have plenty of concrete to lay as the kerbs and channel (or gutter system) are added at the correct road levels and then finally asphalt, which can be seen on the finished surface. Once complete the construction team will install Electrical & Telecommunications for ease of access for authorities to manage these services in the future.
Construction is forecast to be completed late Quarter 1 before Practical Completion is awarded and Statement of Compliance testing and approvals can be issued from the authorities. To all future Stage 4 & 5 residents, we will keep you updated on this process and what is required from you as we get closer to titles in the new year.
Stages 6 & 7
Sewer works have recently been completed in Stage 6 and drainage works have commenced. The drainage works will involve the construction of all stormwater pipes and pits throughout the stage that will allow the safe draining of all stormwater away from all house lots preventing flooding. The road network has now been outlined throughout both stages and the construction team will continue to prepare the ground and start to construct the lower layers of the road pavement. Sewer works are currently underway in Stage 7.
Stage 8 is our final stage at Botania and bitter sweetly is also now underway.
Council and the authorities have accepted all plans including engineering design to allow physical works to commence on site. That means our construction crew have been given the green light to head to site and begin preliminary works on Botania’s final stage.
These works include organising the construction crew and setting up the building site with all the correct health and safety measures in place.
Civil construction can then kick off with the next round of tasks including setting up temporary fencing and performing a general clean-up of the site before civil earthworks begin. This also involves the demolition of the existing house that remained from the previous owners.
The above preliminary works are well underway, and our team are looking forward to commencing earthworks in stage 8 shortly.
Botania is geared for another big year in 2023 with 4 stages due to title. We are looking forward to focusing on the delivery of these stages throughout the year and welcoming many new residents to the Botania community.
The Botania Construction Team will be taking a well-earned break over the holiday season and will be back on-site continuing work on your community mid-January.
Stay tuned for more updates in the new year!
