Flooring systems are both ‘sustainable’ and carry ‘Forestry Certification’ on all flooring.

The timbers used are selected from natural resources (forests) with the appropriate growth patterns to sustain both the usage of these resources and the ongoing harvesting of selected timbers. This is called ‘long growth forestry’. Timber flooring utilising this system is labelled PRS and ST offering a range of flooring. Forestry Certified Flooring provides a complete, certified history of any hardwood surface selected and supplied to Nellakir clients.

This is a combined funding effort by the Victorian State Government, the City of Casey and the Casey Basketball Association.

Sport provides a unique and rewarding pathway to adulthood for many young people. Basketball is appealing across the many ethnicities and cultural groupings that make up the population of Casey.

These courts will be FIBA (International Basketball Federation) certified. The new facility will feature a Premier Show Court with seating for 1500 people. The targeted completion date will be during February 2017.
