Project Size: 102sqm
Here’s a little project we completed a few weeks back that was around 6 months in the making. Our client here is in the process of renovating their home at Robina, and initially we had priced to remove the entire driveway and patio section and re-pour, along with a new rear pergola area, shed base and then resurfacing the lot.
Along the way things were downgraded to removing and extending half the driveway, along with a new patio and shed base out the back, with the rest of the work to follow in the future.
This project was a relatively simple affair, with the only real drama coming from the limited street entry access for machinery and trucks. I have found over the years, that as long as I use more grounded and professional sub-contractors, instead of going for the cheapest dollar on supply, that these little things really don’t cause any headaches in the end.
After what only seemed a few hours, around 40sqm of the driveway, along with about 40 hardwood timber sleepers were removed from the new concrete areas and taken away from my machinery provider.
Returning the next day to set everything up, the usually was prepared with the formwork and steel reinforcing, with a little extra “doubled up” steel on the driveway to combat the root problem our client had previously.
Classic turned up to complete the pumping for us, with a 50Lm push and having to setup on the footpath, they handled things as professionally as I would expect and there were no troubles at all placing and finishing the concrete.
I returned a few days later to complete some floor levelling at the rear door in preparation for decorative applications later on down the track, completed a full site clean up and waved good bye to another happy client.
Thank you as always to our clients.
