Kenmore Project Kicked Off

Construction of this architecturally styled new home in Kenmore kicked off this month.

Project start. Photo taken November 2017.

Splayed over three levels and nestled into the Kenmore landscape, this home features a luxurious mid-level master bedroom at the same level as the main living space and three more bedrooms on the upper level.

The home’s entry showcases the hearty colours of raw timber with exposed timber pergola rafters over shot edge timber decking. A truly magnificent ‘future ‘streetview’.

Holland Park Stunner

Check out this stunning house extension and deck at Holland Park.
I particularly love the gorgeous timber deck and the massive bifold doorway. And who wouldn’t want that humungous gas cooktop!

Congratulations on a beautiful home extension and thanks for sharing your photos.

Day dreaming. How the deck could look when it’s finished.

House Extension at Holland Park West

We issued our structural engineering drawings for this spunky house extension at Holland Park West today. We worked with Neo Building Design on this job.

The extension features a cool master bedroom, massive walk in robe and another bedroom with its own walk in robe and ensuite.

We’re super keen to watch this little beauty go up.

 

Stairway to Heaven

There’s a grad engineer who’s sure
All that external steel is hot dip gal
And he’s designing a stairway to heaven

Steel stairs to roof of warehouse

Jed was singing a song as he went about checking the recently constructed Stairway to Heaven at the brand new Sigma Pharmaceutical Distribution Centre in Berrinba today.

Well actually, it’s a permanent stair access onto the roof of the pharmaceutical giant’s new warehouse where solar panels and air-conditioning units will need regular maintenance and full time access.

We modelled it using SpaceGass before preparing a set of design drawings, checking some shop drawings and then a site inspection to make sure it was built to specification.

The whole facility (including the stair)  was built by big project specialist FK Gardner.
