Construction Update - Porters Plainland Hotel

There's nothing more exciting than seeing all the years of design begin to pay off as the building starts to come out from the page into reality.

The Porters Plainland Hotel is now well under way, and the site is a hive of activity.

It’s exciting to see - the roof is installed over the new function rooms and hotel spaces, and the blocks are quickly going up for the upper storey of the Motel.

You’ll have to use your imagination, but it’s easy to see how this wide and spacious corridor will become a feature in the new Motel.

Now that the roof is installed, it’s easier to see the shape of the new function rooms and have a greater sense of what this space will be.

In other news, Norm (the local windmill whisperer) has found us a beautiful original southern cross windmill for our project. We're excited to be finding this beauty a new home in the coming months, but you will need to wait to find out where she ends up. 

Project Spotlight - Surf Life Saving Queensland Centre of Excellence

We are proud to say that we have been assisting Surf Life Saving Queensland in the development of a concept ‘Centre of Excellence’.

The proposed Centre of Excellence will not only house SLSQ’s state-wide operations and administration, it will also include world-class aquatic facilities to train and upskill surf lifesaver and lifeguards from across Queensland, Australia, and internationally.

This is a hugely exciting project that is the culmination of many years of planning and dedication from the team at Surf Life Saving Queensland and Craig W Chandler Architects. We're looking forward to the next stages of this design, where we can continue working closely to develop this Australian-first facility to its full potential.

Under Construction!

There's lots happening for us this month. We have a lot under construction at the moment, least of all this website! 

We're making good ground on construction of the Porters Plainland Hotel (see more about that here), we've recently completed a little renovation for a Tavern out at Corinda, and we're well into the design documentation for a few other projects that we can't wait to tell you more about! 

Keep an eye out for more...
