We had the 1m high retaining walls built on three of the boundaries that will eventually support the block and give us the level site we have been after.

They look a bit strange at present as they have been engineered to be 15 degrees off vertical. Metricon were happy for us to do these either before or after construction, so it was a no brainier as to which would be easier, cheaper and quicker to build. The remaining retaining walls on the south boundary will be done after hand-over.

The site is now ready for Metricon to move in and do what they do best, the 1 meter cut and fill to level our block (as close as possible).
