End of Year Construction Wrap Up

2022 has been another big year at Marigold!

Marigold opened its first of two local parks, Gathering Grove Park, located on the corner of Cherish Drive and Rejoice Street in Tarneit earlier this year.  The park which will be the largest in the community boasts vibrant colours and feature play equipment that are easily identified on the approach to the park, creating a point of reference amongst the community. Construction has recently commenced on the Stage 10 Park, Frog Way Park, which is anticipated to be completed in July next year. You can read our news post on construction being underway on the new park here.

After two years in lockdown, we were finally able to celebrate the opening of our Display Village and officially welcome our Display Village builder partners to the community. Displaying 14 homes by 8 reputable builders, the Marigold Display Village brings together the very latest in modern design, family oriented and connected living, with a range of designs and layouts to suit all budgets and lifestyles. The Marigold Display Village is the place to visit to find the perfect House & Land package within our community. If you’re looking to be inspired before locking in your builder, you can view online here or visit in person Saturday to Wednesday.

Civil construction on the entry wetlands and skeleton creek, located near Stage 9 begun this year and we are happy to update that construction is now complete and we’ll begin the final phases of landscaping and planting in the coming months.

Earthworks underway on the Wetlands

Read on below for a stage-by-stage progress report on the works occurring in your community.

Stage 10

Stage 10 will be the next Stage in the Marigold community to welcome new residents who can begin settling and construction of their own homes in the new year.

Stage 10 is currently in the Practical Completion phase and is aiming for Statement of compliance to be awarded before the year is out. Stage 10 Titles will register in the new year!

We look forward to welcoming our Stage 10 residents to the community.

Stage 6

Construction is progressing well in Stage 6, which will be our next Stage to title after Stage 10.

The sewer and drainage works have now been completed and Kerb works are continuing. The road network has now been outlined throughout the stage and the construction team will continue to prepare the ground and start to construct the lower layers of the road pavement. Each stretch of road is made up of multiple layers, compiling of several layers of various gravel types, kerbs are added at the correct road height and then finally asphalt, which can be seen on the finished surface. From here, the construction team will install water and gas mains for ease of access for authorities to manage these services in the future. Once complete, attention moves to the physical construction of the kerb and channel (or gutter system). This is a barrier between the road pavement and the nature strip which is designed to provide road drainage and prevent water entering under the road surface. Construction on Stage 6 is anticipated for completion late Quarter 1 and we will then proceed with seeking approvals from all relevant authorities before lodging at the titles office.

Stage 11

Sewer works have recently been completed in Stage 11 and drainage works are now underway. The drainage works will involve the construction of all stormwater pipes and pits throughout the stage. This will allow the safe draining of all stormwater away from all house lots preventing flooding. This stage will also involve work continuing along Skeleton Creek and the surrounding reserve. The Stage 11 scope will also deliver a culvert (bridge) that connects the Eastern part of the community to the Western Part across the waterway. The culvert will allow the water to continue to flow underneath whilst traffic crosses above on a regular looking road.

Stages 7, 8 & 12

The bulk earthworks are now complete throughout Stages 7, 8 & 12. Sewer works are underway in Stage 7 and will commence in Stage 12 before the year is out. Sewer works for Stage 8 have been scheduled to commence in early-2023.

The sewer works will involve the construction of all trunk and reticulation sewers to provide sanitation services to each house lot and connect these services to previously laid services throughout the community and to the wider approved sewer network.

We are looking forward to focusing on the delivery of these stages throughout 2023 and welcoming new residents to the Marigold community. The final stages of the Marigold community will go on sale next year. Stay tuned for your final opportunity to join the community!

The Marigold Construction Team will be taking a well-earned break over the holiday season and will be back on-site continuing work on your community mid-January.
