Works have commenced
Stage 1 works will see the development of 68 lots with the installation of power, water, roads, retaining walls and estate entry fencing.
Landscaping will include the planting of street trees and verge areas, the Purvis Street tuart tree parklet and the completion of the main central public open space.
Works are expected to be completed by mid 2021 and landscaping late 2021.
During the works local fauna will be relocated to the southern bush area and protected by a fence. Various Banjo frogs and lizards as well as 8 quenda and 3 bobtails have been moved.
Over 120 grass trees will be carefully removed from the site, with 30 to be reused within the new development and the remaining trees used in other projects.
For any questions about the works please contact DevelopmentWA reception on 9482 7499.
Redevelopment awarded for sustainability initiatives
The Urban Development Institute of Australia (UDIA) has awarded the redevelopment Envirodevelopment certification.
The demolition of the former school was completed mid year, with artwork, brick, timber, steel and architectural elements recovered from the site for reuse.
A total of 10,625 tonnes, equating to 95% of the former school buildings and infrastructure was recycled. More than 85% of the waste was crushed on-site and will be reused in the new development. Material sent off-site, including timber and scrap steel will be recycled for the other uses. All hazardous material was removed and carefully disposed of in accordance with health and safety requirements.
This innovative on-site approach of the waste materials also avoided the need to truck raw material and also reduced the need to truck raw material back to site in the future. This has meant 1,000 less heavy truck movements through local streets. While recycling levels of 95% are now common place in major demolition works, materials usually end up in stock piles rather than being reused on site.
In late November, Purvis and Ralston Street neighbours to joined us for a "verge walk and talk" to discuss future water-wise verge and tree planting opportunities and next steps for potential traffic calming approaches. The Waterwise Streetscape guide will be released in the coming months.
