OROS+ is heading towards practical completion mid 2020 with the second of three tower cranes being removed over the weekend!

Clinch Apartments in Preston received Practical Completion in March 2020, congratulations to the team and all involved!

1060 Carnegie received Practical Completion mid February 2020, congratulations to the team and all involved!

The last of three tower cranes has been dismantled at OROS+ as the project moves closer to Practical Completion. The crane was removed over two days, by a mobile crane established in a live operating environment. The team worked seamlessly to remove the crane efficiently and without disturbing neighbouring businesses. #oros #orosoakleigh #abdgroup #builtbetter #melbourneconstruction

MESSAGE FROM THE DIRECTORS // WINTER 2018The ABD Group and Marcus Group Pty Ltd machines continue to go from strength to strength.The second quarter of 2018 has left no time for dawdling.Our Vanguard and Trilby projects are powering towards completion. Willow, Stage 2 Casey Green and the Essendon Townhouses have commenced bolstering the Marcus Group workbook, creating new friendships and cementing some ongoing relationships with Pomeroy Pacific and Osanrae.1060 and Flagstaff continue to hit milestones ahead of anticipated programme and are shaping up to be success stories for the business. Whilst not all are individually listed above it goes without saying that each and every project is dear to our hearts.The estimating team are still very busy, particularly with Marcus Group projects. Our most significant contract signing has been Oros, which is a circa $125m project (ABD’s biggest yet). As part of our recent growth, we have now outgrown the Keilor Park office. To increase efficiency, the business has leased a new office in Southbank. This office better suits the location of our works and all those working or visiting the office will know space is at a premium. We will be looking to move in August which will be an exciting change for the business.Safe to say it is a very exciting time to be part of this fantastic group of companies, watch this space!Regards,Raffaele, Scott & Andrew#BuiltBetter [Pictured: Sunshine VicRoads Building]
