QUEEENSLAND developer Vivendi Homes is aiming to ease the chronic housing shortage facing Australia’s miners.
The company, which focuses solely on housing in Australia’s booming mining and energy communities, is planning to roll out a series of housing projects around Australia designed specifically to provide quality housings for miners and people in support industry.
The first project to start will be a $21 million residential portfolio in Emerald after buying into six project sites. The project will lead to the construction of 70 new homes in the booming mining and agricultural community which sits 220km north-west of Rockhampton.
The privately owned Vivendi Homes is also scheduled to commence operations in the booming Pilbara region, including the mining boom towns of Karratha and Exmouth.
Vivendi is also well advanced in plans to expand operations to Geraldton, the gateway of West Australia’s mid-west region, and Perth.
It has been selected by the Western Australian government land agency Landcorp to participate in a display of innovative housing designs in Seville Grove in Perth’s southern suburbs.
The VPS building system is said to be an advanced, thermo dynamic external and internal wall and ceiling solution that is engineered to be structurally and thermally superior to other building systems used.
