June 2020 Update
For many, including the Gen Fyansford team, the first half of 2020 has been challenging to say the least. From the devastating nation-wide bushfires to COVID-19, there has been unfortunate disruption to everybody’s lives including the way we work, learn, and socialise. We would like to emphasise the Gen Fyansford team remain committed to fulfilling our vision of developing Geelong’s most premium estate and despite the challenges 2020 has presented so far, are working tirelessly to get you into your new homes as quickly as we can.

EDEN A & B AND GRACE A, B, & C
Following on from earlier this year, these stages have successfully completed earthworks and are now progressing with civil and intersection works on Hamilton Highway.
After around the clock efforts by the Gen Fyansford team and our contractors, this stage commenced construction in March and we are proud to share that machinery is on site every day scrapping and levelling the land, making significant Earthworks progress! Furthermore, the silos have been successfully removed creating an improved view line towards the north and removing significant shadowing to the area.
For those still looking for the perfect lot to begin building their dream home, we can excitedly share with you we have been working behind the scenes to launch fresh, new lots to the market soon. Interested parties should email email@example.com for information and to ensure they don’t miss out on having their first pick of our newest releases.
As a quick note, we’d like to remind all Gen Fyansford purchasers about upcoming works regarding the quarry rehabilitation. A separate post was uploaded regarding the works, which is available for access here.
Check out our latest construction time lapse video below for a glimpse into the progress we made over Apri; 2020!
From start to finish, construction & approvals
During construction, there are many stages that need to be completed, not all of them visible on site. Behind the scenes, we work with a range of consultants and contractors to co-ordinate planning, approvals and audits to see your stage progress to issue of titles.
The chart below includes, but not limited to, the stages in construction that you may see mentioned in your updates and the email notifications that will be sent to you in preparation for settlement.
1 Construction Approval
Council and other authorities give approval to detailed plans to enable works to commence on site.
2 Site Establishment
Earthmoving machinery do a site scrape, levelling the land and preparing the site for surveying and trenches to be dug for services.
3 Civil Works
Drainage, gas, water and sewer construction followed by road, pavement and kerb works. The final stage is the laying the electrical and optic fibre cables.
4 Practical Completion
Council inspection to confirm all works are complete.
5 Authority Audits Conducted
Following practical completion, the stage must be inspected by a range of authorities (water, gas, power etc) before Council can issue a Statement of Compliance.
6 Title Issue Lodged
Stage Lodged at the Titles Office once a Statement of Compliance has been issued, the stage can be lodged at the Titles Office for registration.
7 Plan Registered (Titles Issued)
With titles formally issued each lot is now registered as an individual property and available to be transferred to the new owner at Settlement. Our legal team will contact your conveyancer to arrange settlement which is due 14 days from the issue of titles.
