How long will construction take?
Approximately 6 months (starting late May 2020)
Why do trees need to be removed?
The new part of the building requires a Bushfire Attack Level (BAL) rating, and the recommendations from the expert report was to remove a small number of trees near the new building to reduce the BAL rating. The number of trees to be removed has been minimised as much as possible. The unavoidable tree removals will be offset with certified vegetation offsets.
