Progress is coming along slowly for glasshouse project Nectar Farms, running behind a timeline released in November last year. That timeline outlined erection of the glasshouse would commence in April and start to be fitted out from July 1, both of which are still months away.
Nectar Farms chief executive Stephen Sasse said work is still being done on the design phase. "We are working hard to finalise designs. A wide range of detailed design work which needs to be done for all of the systems," he said. "That is all progressing well at the moment."
Mr. Sasse said once designs are finalised they will be closer to beginning construction. "We hope to finalise the design to the point we can reach financial close towards end of this month or possibly early August," he said. "We are out in the market at the moment getting prices for some aspects so there is a bit of talk among local contractors happening."
