Rivergum named 2018 HIA Professional Major Builder
It’s with great pleasure that we announce Rivergum Group as South Australia’s HIA Professional Major Builder for 2018.
In an eventful evening for the company, the Housing Industry Association’s Awards for Excellence saw Rivergum take home three awards; one which is a first in our company’s almost 25-year history. The Professional Major Builder of the Year for 2018 is an absolute honour for Rivergum to receive, and can be attributed to our dedication & commitment to innovative product, exceptional quality, forward-thinking approach and without doubt, our people. We’ve made it a strategic focus to thoroughly integrate our purpose, creating better lives, across all facets of the business, with recognition from the HIA a strong reinforcement of these efforts.
The Lumino terrace on display at Lightsview was also highly commended, impressing judges and winning the top honour for Townhouse / Villa of the Year and Excellence in a Display Home ($250k – $400k).
We’d like to extend the recognition for these awards beyond Rivergum, as we gratefully thank our valued suppliers, subcontractors, expert staff and industry partners. Your ongoing support is always appreciated.
Victorian operations commence at Epping North
Focussing heavily on innovation, product and price point, Rivergum’s YoYo Uptown Living homes have launched in to the Victorian market. Located in Lendlease’s Aurora community in Epping North, the first release of the anticipated 72 ‘YoYo’ Uptown homes are offered from $349,000 and after six weeks, had just three homes left remaining in this release, with stage 2 hitting the market late September.
As part of Rivergum’s continued commitment to innovation, this project utilises both Virtual and Augmented reality to bring the Uptown homes to life.
Following on from the commencement of 8 dwellings at Jubilee, Wyndham Vale, the YoYo development serves as a strong pillar to Rivergum’s strategic growth strategy. Stage 1 at Aurora is expected to begin construction in September 2018.
Rivergum secures its next South Australian development site
Rivergum has acquired a substantial parcel of land at St Clair, marking the next significant project for the Rivergum Projects team. Almost 6000sqm has been secured from AV Jennings, master-planners of the St Clair development, adjacent to the St Clair wetlands. A 62-dwelling development is planned for the area, consisting of Torrens Title terraces of varying living sizes, 2-bedroom and 1-bedroom units.
Just 10km from Adelaide’s CBD, market release for Stage 1 is expected to be December with construction forecast for May 2019.
