Last summer, we put the construction of our Holbrook facility out to tender, and received a number of submissions. These quotes were higher than our advice and expectations, which can be at least partially explained by the fact that we’re still in Australia’s biggest building boom since the 1950’s.
Hence we have been carefully reviewing our options, and are considering scaling back the requirements, obtaining more funds, or both. We can’t be sure how long the changes will take, though, so we don’t currently have an expected opening date.
We are still determinedly working on the project, but as we are planning for the very long term we must make sensible and prudent decisions to ensure the permanent sustainability of the organisation.
