Hawes “Under Construction”…

Hawes also undertake their own developments.

We purchased these lots back in 2016.

All consultants were engaged and a comprehensive but practical design was completed inhouse and lodged for building consent in late 2018.

Work commenced on site in August 2019 and the building is due to be completed in March 2020.
