Nicholas St update: First mature fig trees planted on site

The first of several mature fig trees was craned onto the Nicholas St redevelopment site in the past week, taking up residence in the garden beds in the civic plaza.

There are currently 255 workers onsite across the library, civic plaza and new council administration building.

In the past week, four mature fig trees were brought onto the site, work began on cleaning the car park and the administration building continued to inch closer to its full height of nine storeys.

Paving is continuing across the civic plaza precinct alongside work to prepare garden beds for landscaping.

Crews on the library have been focusing on interior painting as well as preparation of the flooring while electricians continue to install lighting.

The flooring structure has almost been completed on level eight of the administration building.

The installation of external walls and panelling as well as frameworks for interior walls and partitioning is ongoing on level six.

On level four, the first installation of amenities and cupboards has been completed.

The Nicholas St redevelopment is a once-in-a-generation development which will reinvigorate the city’s central business district.
