The world health community continues to monitor closely the emergence of "coronavirus disease 2019" (COVID-19). At this time, no one knows how severe this outbreak will be. Given this uncertainty, and the fact that the flu virus is also widespread, we are taking proactive steps to address key concerns.
First and foremost, we want to maintain a safe workplace and encourage and adopt practices protecting the health of employees, contractors, visitors or other stakeholders, as well as comply with other requirements imposed by or under the OHS legislation.
We plan to achieve this by providing health information and training as well as maintain and monitor health conditions of staff and contractors.

A soil foundation is necessary to support the building and the loads that are within or on the building. The combination of footing and foundation distributes the load on the bearing surface and keeps the building level and plumb and reduces settling to a minimum.
The Victorian Building Authority (VBA) collects information from building surveyors on the number, value and type of building permits issued each month. The Building Permit Activity Data provides information relating to each building permit issued in the Victoria and reported to the VBA for the period of 1 January 2016 to end of December 2016. Our planning experts have geo-located the permit information on an interactive map.

- Confirm that observations have been recorded — usually on standard checklist from contractor’s OHS manual.
- Confirm that issues have been addressed.
- Confirm that site amenities are being maintained in hygienic conditions.
