With winter now upon our doorstep (normally a lot earlier in Tasmania than Queensland) it is nice to know that both buildings are now “topped out”. Our team are now inside the buildings pre-wiring the student accommodation spaces. Fitting off has commenced on the lower levels, and the electrical “heart” (being the main switchboard) is being installed this month – a major milestone for any electrical contractor and we thank our local manufacturers for maintaining the program during these unprecedented times. May also seen another two local electricians join the Blue Star team to assist us in continuing to complete the project ahead of program.
The Blue Star Atlantic team has been working on the Wakerley Sports Park for just under a year.

All areas of the project are currently in the rough-in stage and will be followed by the final fit off stages. The Blue Star team is working hard towards project completion to handover to the client later this year.
