Stokes Hill Wharf - Australia - The Movie - Set Construction

June 2007

Early June saw site offices mobilised for the start of construction on the Wharf One complex by the Toga Group. The expanded image shows the floor of the completed basement excavation, through to the lagoon, with the seawall behind. Amongst other things, the complex will contain 138 one, two and three bedroom residential apartments, with the majority selling on the first day they were offered!! And they won't even be available until well into 2008!



Yet another building project got under way this month at Stokes Hill Wharf; construction of the set for Baz Luhrmann's movie "Australia", starring Nicole Kidman and Hugh Jackman. A gang of carpenters is hard at it transforming about 100 meters of the wharf to resemble the Darwin waterfront during the WW2 era. The working scaffolds are easy to see, and the steep steps, centre, are for Nicole to climb for her grand entrance to Darwin.

 

SitzlerLO'R - Convention Centre Internals



Gatehouse - Long Gone!

 

Sitzler Laing O'Rourke just powered ahead with the Convention Centre... now that the roof is being sheeted, and the curtain walls are being glazed, it's starting to really look the part! Internally there's plenty of progress too, with things like substation transformers and HVAC units all being positioned and wired in. Look closely and you'll see that even the gyprock flushers have been busy!




Macmahon had a productive month too, with the Kitchener Drive and Stokes Hill access roads nearing completion... hard to believe that the expanded image left is taken where the old gatehouse stood, only seven months ago! Overall construction of Stage One of the Wharf Precinct redevelopment is rapidly approaching the 50% mark.
