We have just won Norrebro development in Watson. Our package includes three buildings comprising of 33 units and 31 townhouses. We will be supplying and installing 1000m2 of Barestone cladding and 550m2 of Territory cladding across the three new buildings.

We have been pressing along at our ICU Expansion project for Manteena in the last few weeks. We have wrapped the building and made it watertight, cladded three sides of the building in Lysaght Longline and above is a picture of the framing work getting underway for our 3mm Proclad Solid Orange feature wall.

We believe in supporting and promoting connections in our community, so we have decided to introduce you to some of the incredible architects and designers we have had the privilege of working with.
Name: Alana Ring
Where do you work: Senior Interior Designer at Dept of Design
What did you want to be when you grew up: I always knew I was going to do something creative. I also have many family members with creative jobs so it was a natural choice. I am so grateful to have a career that I am so passionate about.
Something you have always wanted to learn: To speak Italian or French
What are you currently listening to / reading: I am not a huge reader, but I do love listening to different podcasts.
Question you get asked the most at work: What do you think is the best solution? It is a trust process!
Favourite part of the job: I always get so much enjoyment from seeing something come to life from concept to fruition. I also love walking through a finished space and seeing the client enjoying the space that you created in collaboration with them.
Tree Planting Update
I just wanted to put this message out there as unfortunately this is the first time in the last 21 months where we haven’t been able to get someone to match our tree donations for the month. Times are tough at the moment, as everyone can imagine, and I appreciate first-hand how the priority of every business in today’s climate is survival. However, I just wanted to make a note in here to say that since starting our tree planting programme, we have planted 4,624 trees. This is an outstanding achievement and so many people have contributed towards this, so thank you all.
Carbon Positive Australia is the charity that we donate to, who do all the hard work and get the trees planted. They have been doing this for 20 years and have now planted 6,161,156 trees in Australia, they have captured 668,715 tonnes of carbon and restored over 5000 hectares. Incredible work.
If you are in a position to donate trees, personally or as a business, then please reach out to me and I will let you know the costs involved (it’s a lot more affordable than you think).
I also just wanted to say if you are struggling through these tough times, please reach out to someone for help. Although it may seem like you are alone, you aren’t. Take care.
