To enhance our clients certainty further, we have developed an online client portal which allows our clients to access project schedules, track progress, and ask questions about any part of the job. By providing this transparency and open communication channel, clients can stay informed and have clarity about the upcoming construction process.

This proactive approach eliminates any lingering questions or doubts and provides clients with a sense of certainty regarding the project’s progress.

Adrian emphasises the importance of precision in a project of this scale. He mentions bringing in a colour consultant to ensure that every detail, including colours and tile selections, is executed perfectly.

By involving the client in the tile selection process, we can ensure that the client’s preferences are met precisely. This attention to detail from the beginning of the project helps set clear expectations and avoids any confusion or dissatisfaction later on.

In this project, we wanted to convert an old and unused space into a functional and aesthetically pleasing outdoor area. The initial state of the space was narrow, too hot due to sun exposure, and unsuitable for any outdoor entertaining.

The client’s desire for a maintenance-free space combined with the high level bushfire zoning meant that we used a tile floor finish that can be easily hosed off. We wanted to create a spacious and versatile area that can accommodate multiple entertaining areas or provide a peaceful spot for the client to enjoy a coffee alone.

Although the project is still a few weeks away from completion, we’ll share the end results in a future update.

By having a clear 5150mm span for the framing, meant that Michael could install water tanks under the deck area & also have storage facilities in what otherwise would have been a dead or unused space.
