Location: Runaway Bay
Project Size: 82sqm
Our client for this project found us online and like what they saw. After having a bad experience with their previous contractor, they decided to hunt around for a little bit better quality and service. So after receiving our quote and also looking over some of our previous work, we were all booked in and ready to start.
Existing on the driveway was pavers, which the client put an add on Gumtree and had them picked up by other people in need quite quickly. Part of our job description was not only installing the new exposed aggregate driveway, but also removing the existing brick fence at the front to allow for the installation later of a large, double opening gate making parking access for both vehicle and caravan.
So after spending a day on the machine knocking down the wall (and over filling the skip……whoops….sorry Earthfleet), we were all ready to go with the installation of the new concrete.
Off to the parking side is an easement section with GCCC sewer access. Basically I can’t change the heights of this, so I just customised the levels and falls to accommodate it in the new surface.
As with all my work these days, I’m quite happy to break my pours down into smaller sections, allowing not only more time to make sure we complete a better finish, but also allowing for proper construction joints at high percentage break points. This one obviously being straight down the middle as shown in the photos.
Back we came after the first section and completed the final pour today of the main driveway section, all control joints tooled into the concrete to make sure we catch the cracking and everything hosed off with near perfect precision.
Honestly, I don’t mean to blow our own horns……but damn we do some near perfect exposed. Spotless!
As always, our clients here were not only great to work with, also your hospitality was perfect and your patience waiting the 5 or 6 weeks for us to get there was worth it in the end. All the best with your new renovated home, it’s a perfect spot for living the good life.
