BMD Urban Starts Strong in 2014

BMD Urban has made a strong start to the 2014 calendar year by securing a number of high profile urban development projects throughout Queensland and the Northern Territory. As the market continues its resurgence in South East Queensland, BMD Urban is working closely with development company Stockland and their engineering teams to ensure their Freshwater, Stoneridge, Augustine Heights and Sovereign Pocket projects are delivered in a timely manner. BMD Urban is also working with Sekisui House on a new development in the Ripley Valley located west of Brisbane. Also in the Ripley Valley, Amex Corporation’s master planned community project is about to commence, with a $16 million contract to construct a three span bridge, external entry works and the first few stages of the project.

The Pitch is being prepared for stockpad and turf and the assembly of the light towers. Further south in Melbourne, BMD Urban won MAB Corporation’s ‘Merrifield Estate’ project at the end of 2013.
