Police attended a Wollongong construction site where man's body was found on Tuesday morning

Shocked tradesmen have unearthed a body after arriving to work at a construction site south of Sydney.

Work was halted after the grisly find at the site in the Wollongong suburb of Unanderra on Thursday morning.

A worker from a neighbouring business recalled hearing cries of ‘stop’ coming from the Nolan Street site, which is under the supervision of Chappell Building Systems.

‘They started up an excavator, then I could hear someone yelling out ‘stop, stop’,’ Bob told the Illawarra Mercury.

‘I didn’t think anything of it, but then about half an hour later all these cop cars turned up – crime investigation unit, forensics – everybody else turned up. There were about 20 police.

‘They all went down to the side of the creek, where they were digging.’

Bob claimed that masked gloved officers got down on their hand and knees and dug out what appeared to be the body.  

Ambulance crews also attended but were unable to revive the man.

A report will be prepared for the coroner.

The site foreman declined to comment.

The site, which was once home to a Bonds textiles factory, sold for $11.275m in November 2022 to Hornby Property Investments Pty Ltd.

The former warehouse onsite hosted a workforce of more than 200 until 2010 when Pacific Brands closed the facility.
