Stockland is Queensland’s largest community developer with almost $3.6 billion invested in the state. South East Queensland has experienced a heightened demand for housing with strong interstate migration and increased desire for detached homes arising out of COVID. The Greater Brisbane Western corridor is one of South East Queensland’s biggest growth areas with Ripley Valley accounting for over 40% of land sales in the Greater Brisbane West area in recent years.
In late 2020, Stockland acquired Providence which is a master planned community located in the Ripley Valley. Having already having seen strong demand in their three residential projects in the area (Augustine Heights, Kalina and Sovereign Pocket) Stockland anticipated the local requirement for quality, affordable housing to continue and saw Providence as a good fit.
Providence spans 700 hectares and is already home to over 3,800 residents, which will grow to more than 20,000 within the next 20 years. In addition to over 7,000 homes, Providence’s masterplan focuses on liveability and creating a community with access to a range of facilities. Residents already benefit from access to schools, retail precincts, parks, sports fields and a well-connected transport network with more to come as the neighbourhood continues to develop.
As part of Stockland’s Providence development, CV is providing a turnkey design and construction package. The team will deliver the key electrical infrastructure for the new community to accommodate the increased power demand from the area growth.
CV is planning and designing the augmentation of the Energex electrical network to facilitate the construction of new High Voltage (HV) and Low Voltage (LV) feeders. The increased network capacity will be able to energise thousands of additional homes being constructed in the emerging community. CV looks forward to playing our part in the growth of this community.
