About This Project
Terranora is a vast suburb in the hills behind Tweed Heads. Its main township lies a 5 minute drive and 2 valleys away around the scenic rim, past large houses on large blocks of land amidst historic farm lands with views from either side of the ridge down through the valley to the inlets of the Tweed River or over the vast cane fields and out to the ocean. Altitude lies on the front edge of the suburb on the borderline of the neighbouring suburb of Banora Point on the site of a former fruit farm that thrived in the landscape’s rich red volcanic dirt.
Early stages such as the sales offices, top entry and streetscapes along Fraser Drive were carried out along side SEE Civil while the later stages have been for Newland Developers.
Key Project Features:
- Stone clad entry walls and features
- Extensive custom timber works
- Custom fencing package
- Sales office
This site presented numerous challenges throughout construction which were all overcome to achieve this excellent finished result. The main challenge, however, was that while the volcanic nature of the underlying earth makes for excellent growing conditions, it also means the earth is full of the famous Terranora bush rocks and boulders. They might make for great retaining walls but they make digging a hole a lot harder than it needs to be.
