I got an email notification this morning that the project had been updated. (got a little excited when i saw the email)
We now have it as Town planning application submitted. (If I recall correctly) A couple of companies have been assigned as having some of the early work assigned to them. I didnt take note of what company was working on what, at this early stage it wouldnt be anything that important i believe, still a long way to go for tenders to be called and real work to be awarded. I had a busy work day today and only had a brief look at the project info.
I did note that the tentative commencement dates are still in august 2019 with a completion late 2020. (hasnt changed)
I will try to get more details and make another post tomorrow. If I knew the login details off the top of my head for that system I would login and have a look from home, but i dont have it handy as its not the primary system I use at work and the phone app isnt giving me any joy right now.
As long as I'm not providing access to our systems I'm all good.
The company I work for works with publicly available information. We just compile it well. People pay us so they don't have to find it the hard way around.
So the information I'm giving out is like .000001% of our data. A blip on the radar. And it can all be found if you look in the public sphere hard enough or call the right people and ask the right questions. (which our research team does)
If someone at work becomes aware of this thread and they work in my office. They are going to know its me immediately..... The hat and Jacket I wear nearly all year round is going to give it away. (that and my tattoo as my avatar will sorta give me up too)
I wont be giving away any of the "private" info that our systems contains. As that delves into company numbers and contact names and I know my privacy rules and I'm not silly enough to do that. I explain how the privacy laws in this country works every day due to the way the company collects the information we handle. I'm pretty sure I wont be riling up HR anytime soon.
Anything I divulge will only be very basic details and comes with a disclaimer (just like work does) that its collected publicly and is subject to change.
You will note that my updates will likely coincide with media releases and other such things.....
Ok, To follow up from yesterday. There is a town planning application number, but i figured others could find that themselves checking the relevant council websites.
Current notes indicate
TOWN PLANNING APPROVAL (CONDITIONAL) CONSTRUCTION NOT YET COMMENCED
Concept Architect - Populous
Town Planner - 10 CONSULTING GROUP
Consultant - WAYPOINT PTY LTD
As stated yesterday, all this information would be publicly available via other sources. We do capture where these companies are located and their contact information but I will never disclose those details. This information is to allow you to be aware that things are happening and that we are closer to seeing progress with the greatest commercial development our club has undertaken. I will only get updates up until construction starts. We stop research at that point. I would expect the club to be providing us with regular updates and photos once we get to that point.
This wont be a secret build, I expect the club to put a spotlight on all the big milestones as they get ticked off.
Cant wait to have some of, if not the best facilities in the AFL at our amazing club.
