Australia sees rise in demand for new land releases

Strong, steady rises in housing approvals and prices suggest demand for dwellings in Australia has turned the corner and is rising again.

According to RP Data, in the 12 months to October 2013, dwelling approvals in the private sector increased by almost 30 per cent, while there was a 10.3 per cent increase in approvals for detached homes, and a 3.2 per cent increase in approvals for multi-unit residences.

This strong demand for residential property has seen an increase in demand for land development projects across Australia. Hyder has also seen an increased need for engineering and design services to assist with these projects.

Our team provides a strong portfolio of services on land development projects across Australia including engineering for civil works, storm water and flooding projects, utilities planning and project management services.

On the outskirts of Sydney, Hyder is providing cost planning, construction, project management, and service coordination for sewer and water for The New Rouse Hill development that will consist of 1,800 residential dwellings completed by 2020.

Meanwhile, Hyder’s Victorian office has been appointed to provide design and construction management for the Bloomdale Diggers Rest development North-West of Melbourne’s CBD. The development project includes a strong focus on sustainable community living. It features a mix of conventional, medium and high-density dwellings, integrated community facilities, plus extensive parks and open spaces.

In the sunshine state, Hyder is working with Investa Property Group to provide civil engineering expertise on their Brentwood community development encompassing Brentwood Forest and the award-winning Brentwood Rise.
