Our Work on the Holgate Brewery Expansion, Woodend
Holgate Brewery, the highly successful little brewhouse in Woodend, Victoria, have begun plans to expand their premises.
The modern-looking new facility will transform the brewery into an icon of the Macedon ranges, combining impressive design with their existing, traditional brick building.
The new extension is certain to look excellent, and we’re proud to have been able to help erect the steel structure that will make this a solid, enduring project that will make Woodend the place to be.
See some photos of the new extension under construction below:
