Restoration of an Historic Build under $1m – Quirindi Public School
The Quirindi Public School restoration project included repairs on the administration building known as Collarene House. The restoration proved to be a labour of love, and to successfully restore the building we accomplished the following:
- Removing and salvaging the existing Welsh slate from the roof
- Procuring new Welsh slate and replacing approximately 30% of the roof whilst reinstalling those slate tiles which were salvageable from the removal process
- Removing the existing roof battens and sarking
- Replacing the roof battens with new Oregon battens and installing new sarking
- Removing the bullnose verandah and gutters & downpipes and replacing with new.
Public Buildings under $5m – Kurri Kurri High School
Works at Kurri Kurri High School included the demolition and refurbishment of the existing hall, undercroft amenities and stores area to create a new CAPA Movement Studio, 2 new general learning spaces, as well as a new mezzanine with a 3rd general learning space, music practice rooms and recording studios, and a control booth for audio and lighting for the refurbished stage.
Apartment Development under $10m – Fernleigh Apartments, Belmont
Fernleigh Apartments in Belmont NSW is a for-purpose development, providing opportunities for older and vulnerable members of our community, and at any stage of their housing journey, needing to access safe and secure accommodation. The 13-unit mixed-tenancy complex includes a combination of social, affordable, and market-rate rentals. The development also includes a commercial tenancy on the ground floor that will provide a community contact point for housing provider, Pacific Link Housing and Key 2 Realty, who provide and look after the tenants.
We wouldn’t have achieved this level of success without the collaboration of our consultants and subcontractors. We extend our gratitude to each and every one of them for their contributions to our projects. Their expertise and dedication played a crucial role in the above accomplishments.
We’d also like to thanks the Master Builders Association and congratulate all the other deserving winners who shared the stage with us. Being part of such a talented construction community inspires us to keep pushing boundaries, setting new standards, and delivering projects that make a positive impact in our communities.
Finally, we extend our sincere gratitude to our clients for their support. We look forward to the opportunity to continue delivering projects that leave a positive mark on our community.
