Frew Park Project On Hold As Council’s Contractor Goes Into Administration

The principal builder in charge of Milton’s Frew Park project entered into administration last week, putting the entire project on hold.

The Gold Coast company Scape Shapes Landscaping was awarded the $8.23 million contract in September last year and began work in October.

The Frew Park project was intended to be finished by the end of 2014 but a meeting of Scape Shape Landscaping’s creditors last week marked the beginning of the end for the landscaping business.

PwC Partners Derrick Vickers and Darryl Kirk have been administering the close of the business.

“As part of the orderly business wind-down we have made the difficult decision to close the business and as a consequence about 120 staff were made redundant,” Mr Vickers said.

“We are in the process of investigating why the company collapsed and it is too early to say what has occurred.”

In spite of the project shut down a Brisbane City Council spokeswoman said the project was already ahead of schedule and is still on budget at this stage.

“Council is investigating options for the way forward, including holding discussions with subcontractors. Council will keep residents updated as information is available,” she said.
