Construction at Ferny Grove Central hits key milestone


We are pleased to advise that considerable progress has been made on the construction of Ferny Grove Central and The Fernery apartments. The first pour of the basement slab is under way for the retail part of the development (see photo at right).


In common with the construction industry as a whole, the project has experienced ongoing impacts from skills shortages that show few signs of improvement. In addition to these conditions, there have been a number of adverse weather events that have affected the project timeline.

We are working with the builder, Broad Constructions, on a review of the structure methodology to ensure optimal efficiency in construction. Once this review is complete, we will revise the timeline as required and update you on any changes that will happen as a result.


Construction Update


The Ferny Grove Central team is excited to announce that a key milestone has been reached in the construction process. Bulk excavation and removal of materials offsite is 95% complete, and the placement and compaction of gravel for the piling platform is 80% complete.


There are still piling works being done on The Fernery site, and these are progressing well, with the piling and bulk earthworks scheduled for completion by the end of this month.


The construction of the retail building is advanced, with internal inter-tenancy wall sheeting complete, and ductwork to the cinema commenced. The Travelator pit, shear wall footing and the lift pit are also complete.


Program Update


We are continuing to engage with the builder on the progress of the project and have been informed that completion of Ferny Grove Central and The Fernery is likely to be later than previously planned. As outlined above, we are looking at reprogramming the project to reflect the impact of various issues on the timeline.


We appreciate your patience and understanding and we will provide more information as we get further updates on the progress of construction.

Construction Is Underway

A transformational project that will enhance and reshape the Ferny Grove community in Brisbane’s north-west is off and running as construction is underway. The much-anticipated Ferny Grove Central, which has been in the planning phase by Honeycombes and MaxCap Group in collaboration with the Queensland Government and is supported by the Federal Government, is a mixed-use development adjoining the Ferny Grove Railway Station.

Peter Honeycombe, managing director of Honeycombes Property Group was joined by Queensland Transport and Main Roads Minister Mark Bailey and local MPs, State Member for Ferny Grove Mark Furner, Federal Member for Dickson, the Hon Peter Dutton MP and Federal Member for Ryan, the Hon Julian Simmonds at the official launch at the Ferny Grove project site on the 27th July, 2021.

The project will comprise a 12,000sqm retail centre with a new multi-level parking facility for retail customers and commuters, with 1,400 car parks for commuters (about 900 undercover), an increase of an estimated 450 parks. The station caters for more than 5,000 passengers per day from the end-of-the-line transport hub.

Ferny Grove Central will also become a desirable residential hub through construction of The Fernery, comprising 82 luxury apartments (featuring 1, 2 and 3 bedroom apartments) and a recreational deck for residents. 

More than 800 full time jobs will be supported by the development, including about 285 directly tied to the construction project.
