After we hand over a building to a client, they usually go on to make additions and put in the finishing touches that complete the space and bring their vision to life.
There are usually a few weeks to a few months between the completion of our work and the point at which the space is entirely ready for use. It’s always interesting to see what has been done with the space.
For this particular project, we knew we were in for a surprise. The building itself was very interesting; we left spaces for windows that were going to be low to the ground and asymmetrically set out. The space was long and narrow, with a bed and breakfast to go in one end and an animal pen at the other. We were intrigued.
By the time we arranged to visit the space, it had been completely reinvented. A nursery had been installed in the middle section, guest lodgings at one end and a resident llama at the other. It also became the space for cooking workshops and classes.
The wooden interior panelling looked amazing and the entire place really came together fantastically. This project had involved designers, architects, our engineers and our construction workers. And all the different moving components came together to perfectly realise the client’s vision. It’s a wonderful space that we’re proud to have built.

Case Study: Mclure Excavations
Mclures is an excavation company located in Castlemaine, Victoria. They were in need of a new depot and office complex and worked with us through the design and construct process of the project.
The job consisted of a 54 x 40 meter depot building with an attached 6 x 40 meter office complex.
Being a depot for trucks the building had to be designed with the right amount of bays and the right size to be able to house all trucks fittingly. This job was an interesting design and the result was fantastic.
