Centrus Development, Eight Mile Plains

Client: M2 Property Group

Civil Contract Value: $3.2M

The project involved the design and construction of 5 Management Lots for a mixed use development. Development then led on to the construction of the civil works for 86 fully integrated townhouses and a four lot subdivision on two of the management lots.

The Development Application was referred to Queensland Transport and Department of Main Roads for works involving an underground detention system, and extending sewer and stormwater pipes through a busy arterial road. Detailed negotiations were held with Council and the State Government Agencies to achieve a practical, economical and mutually beneficial outcome.

Centrus was a joint winner of the Medium to Large Density Development category at the 2011 UDIA (QLD) Boral Awards for Excellence.
