Project Description

Location: Bethania
Project Size: 25sqm

Part 1 of a larger project. This week we demolished the old concrete entrance and pathways that were beyond repair with resurfacing techniques, then of course re-poured them today. We’ll be back in a few weeks to resurface these new pathways, along with the remaining other concrete driveways.

Concrete Repair Coolangatta

Project Description

Location: Coolangatta
Project Size: 16sqm

Down at Youth Hostels Australia Coolangatta Edition to rip out some damaged concrete section at their entrance and replace with fresh new grey stuff for their establishment.

I have to say, I don’t do a great deal of concreting these days, but the lack of expectation on the decorative result is kind of rewarding and welcomed. A lot of pressure lately in results on other projects, nice to go back to the roots and just do what we do best, install quality concrete that is purpose driven.

Structure Base Carrara Markets

Project Description

Location: Carrara Markets
Project Size: 160sqm

Back to the Markets we shall go! We haven’t been back here for a while now, the Markets have been working on other areas on refurbishment in the mean time, but we returned last week with a lovely little slab for a new attraction they have in plans.

I’m not going to leak exactly what it is, but it’s something the kids will love and to be fair, something I don’t think I’ve seen anywhere else in Qld.

As always with the Markets, we are working with existing surfaces and structures trying to make everything blend and work in with each other. Dave did a wonderful job this time guiding the machines to get the site level while we were away on another site, leaving us an easy (for a change), installation.

Working on roughly 125mm of concrete throughout, with a level slab, typical steel reinforcing and a very light brush finish to allow for no slipping if it gets wet.

The enclosure however will be completely built in from now on, getting everything ready for the new attraction.

I’m not sure exactly when the open date will be, but keep an eye on if you’re in the area, it’s certainly something I’ll be taking my daughter to.

Thanks for you on going work and support Carrara Markets, was a pleasure as always.

Hinterland Access Concrete Maudsland

New Driveway Entrance Maudsland

Project Description

Location: Maudsland
Project Size: 105sqm

Our client for this project approached us needing a new entrance installed at her lovely Maudsland Acreage property.

The previous entrance, was a little too far up on the hill and when someone was wishing to turn in, the road in front could not be seen in full, which unfortunately, was the result of an accident in which somebody lost their life.

After showing some great patience waiting for us to get through Saturday Gold Coast traffic in pouring rain, we went through options for installation and a plan was made to allow much better and clearer access to the property.

When we return, our machines excavated a brand new driveway area with an 8m front curved access, running flat and guiding in back to a 5m gate entrance, then proceeding down the hill over a new drain installation to allow for natural water flow, then of course meeting up with the old driveway.

After all the prep work was completed and the drain installed with plenty of crusher dust surrounds, the 120mm thick driveway was poured with a pump, in which we finished with a stiff broom allowing for surface traction whilst highlighting the edges and control joints.

We hand sculpted entrance and exit points to the drain, had a few beers and laughs and called it a day.

Thanks very much to our client, a few carton of eggs and a cast of beer at the end of the job with a smile the entire time. It really is lovely working for country minded people, I’m from the bush and it makes me smile getting away from the city attitude.

Concrete & Resurfacing Package Hope Island

Concrete Canvas Laid Hope Island

Project Description

Location: Hope Island
Project Size: 145sqm (Stage 1 to Resurface Later)

Doing a lot of these stage 1 prep’s for resurfacing at a later date. It’s great to be completing new concrete works all ready for some fancy decorative sprays, refreshing that the products we use are just as popular on new works as they are on rejuvenating older areas.

So just a quick up date here because I haven’t posted for a while. I like to leave these projects for a full blog entry until they are completely finished, for obvious reasons, but that means fewer articles and my SEO provider doesn’t like fewer articles…so here I am writing about a semi complete project.

This, I must admit, has been a tricky one so far. Given the areas have tight access and were full of bushes and pavers and other random things to make our life miserable, it has been a battle just getting to concrete stage that we have now finished.

Add onto this torrential rain that we received last week, which in turn saw us with 15m.cub of concrete sitting in the barrels and a pump that couldn’t push it, having to send those trucks away to get two new fresh ones there, then having that new concrete go off like a freaking rocket….man today was hard! But the boys dug deep, put in the extra miles needed and we got our canvas all laid and ready for us to return in a few weeks and apply what I’m calling, a “mid ground semi sandstone finish”, trying to find a middle price range between a standard design and our full custom resurfacing pricing.

Thanks to our patient clients so far getting to this stage, at least you don’t have sand, pavers and mud to deal with anymore, just a little more patience and you’re lovely Hope Island home will look amazing! See you soon.
