Talbot Park project involved refurbishment of the existing blocks of Star Flats.

The third and final stage concluded the refurbishment of a total of nine blocks (108 units) of Star Flats in Talbot Park, Glen Innes. The improvements included:

• New entrance ways with better visibility and security;
• New decks or courtyards for all units;
• New kitchens and bathrooms;
• New roof design and better lighting;
• New car parking areas;
• New planting and fencing.

The project environment required sensitivity to existing tenants and all defect liability maintenance were handled promptly and with responsibility.
The client commended Canam Construction on the delivery of the total project on time and budget and at the same time achieving a very good standard of workmanship related to budget constraints.

A special feature of the project included involving the community in the construction of the project. Canam Construction had employed a total of fifteen local Glen Innes residents during the refurbishment of the Star Flats project.
