Our construction activity at The Grove continues as scheduled, with additional hygiene and screening procedures introduced to protect our staff and contractors on site. We plan to continue construction activities while it is safe to do so, following the guidance of health and government authorities at all times. If this should change, we will let you know.
We would like to advise that settlement of your land is now anticipated for end July to August 2020.
Please note that the anticipated settlement time frame is indicative and subject to change due to the civil works program, external authority involvement and weather conditions.
Your Settlement Progression
We would like to take this opportunity to remind you to make any financial arrangements with your bank as early as possible, so that your land settlement runs smoothly.
We encourage you to remind your bank that valuation access is available, if you have not already done so. Please ask your lender to contact Tina Wu on (03) 9258 1325 to schedule an onsite valuation (if required). A booking must be made for valuation access.
Your legal representative will provide advice and assistance with the preparations of your settlement and most importantly, a legal communication point to Frasers legal representative and your nominated bank. If you have yet to appoint a legal representative (solicitor or conveyancer), please nominate one as soon as possible and send their contact details to Tina Wu via ProsperityCareVIC@frasersproperty.com.au.

Understanding the works on site:
| 1. Bulk Earthworks
This is the first step in the journey to your new home. Bulk earthworks entail excavating and filling the land to specified levels. The finished surface provides the base for your future slab to be constructed on.
| 2. Sewers
Sewers are the first service to be laid as they require the deepest trenches, which can range from 3 to 6 metres deep. The sewer system will carry waste away from your house to a treatment facility.
| 3. Drains
This stage of works will ensure your home's roof and underground plumbing have the appropriate connection points to carry all the stormwater to the council drains. Concrete pipes for stormwater then need to be laid in order to drain any excess rainwater.
| 4. Water Mains and Gas
Installation of the pressure mains is a critical step to ensure your home is fully service. The step that will eventually allow you to prepare your favourite meals, fill the kettle, flush the toilet and enjoy a luxurious shower is finally here. Pressure mains then provide drinking water to all houses. Gas pipelines are also installed to service your land lot.
|5. Road Works
We are building the roads that will connect you smoothly to the rest of the estate and beyond, this integral step will give you a strong sense of home. These are the roads that will soon be well-traveled; the paths that will wind their way to your doorstep.
| 6. Electrical and Telecommunications
Electrical and communication conduits are placed in nature strips. These services will allow your house to be connected to electricity, internet (NBN) and telephone line.
Light poles are also set up to provide lighting for the street.
|7. Concrete Works
Concrete is a versatile material. Once mixed, poured and leveled, it will contribute to many of the final finishes of the community. Think smooth driveways your car will effortlessly roll out of, level footpaths you’ll wander along, guttering along the roads you’ll drive down.
| 8. Final Works
The final step to completing your lot involves placing topsoil on the lots to ensure it is neat and tidy. The street signs are installed, roads are line marked and lots are pegged. Finally, we complete the sign off process with all authorities. Once this process is complete and the titles are registered we will place turf on the nature strips and plant trees to beautify the neighbourhood.
