Check out our current project in Alexandria as it draws to a close. We were able to catch Sam & the boys from Stone Art Australia working their magic and finishing off the polished concrete floors throughout.
Below are a few shots of the curved roof with the beautiful curved glass windows now in and also a peek at the round studio back room.
Project architect Tony Beattie of Beattie & Co has done an amazing job at utilising the small area he had to work with at the tiny terrace home - its really going to be an amazing home once finished in a few weeks.
Aspire Constructions winning project at WHALE BEACH has just been nominated for a NATIONAL Master Builders Award! The Gala night will be held at Parliament House in Canberra in November, hosting the best of the best builders from around the nation.
Located in a beautiful location opposite WHALE BEACH in the northern beaches of Sydney, Aspire Constructions was engaged for remedial building works to the existing balcony and internal renovations of a holiday home.
The existing balcony had extensive waterproofing issues left degenerating over many years. Aspire Constructions was initially engaged by the client to rectify this major issue. Upon investigation we realized that there was no quick fix to the problem and found out that other builders had in the past attempted to fix the issues, with no long term avail. One of the main issues with the existing waterproofing was the fact that the external balcony was level and in some places higher than that of the internal floor level. We carefully planned and designed a solution for the problem along with the help of a structural engineer, our waterproofing expert and the "Guide to External Waterproofing: Balcony Decks MBA 2009 Edition"
To deal with the Balcony floor level being too high we completely demolished the balcony which was a challenge as we had to hold and support two levels above and maintain a waterproof site the whole time. We re-built the new balcony to incorporate our custom designed waterproofing and drainage system and achieved a water tight job the entire throughout the entire construction phase and on completion.
The job also involved a new timber railing and replacement of all Sliding doors, New kitchen, New timber floors, and painting of the complete home inside and out. Site Access was a critical issue due to the site being on a steep hill. This meant that all materials were taken up and down by either a small inclinator or an electric rope hoist from street level.
It is an absolute honor for our team just to even be nominated for a national award. Jake and Aaron worked hard on this project to deliver an above and beyond build - working with the limited access, and it looks like their hard work has paid off. Well done boys and all the best for hopefully another win in November.
