  • Major Amenity Refurbishment

     HB’s were approached by one of Perths leading Shopping Centres to tender for the upgrade of their existing food court amenity block which was 10 years old and had seen much better days.

    The bar has been lifted in recent years, and the consumer now expects modern, clean and stylish amenities when they go to their favourite shopping centre, and rightly so we think!

    Designed by The Buchan Group the new facilities would be brighter, more durable, more stylish, and most importantly- compliant to meet current building code requirements making the facilities easy and safe to use for everyone regardless of any disability or not.

    The project involved completely demolishing the entire area of all its internal brick walls so there was a blank canvas to work with.

    All the under slab plumbing services where reconfigured to suit the new layout and new block walls were installed to provide for Male, Female, and Disabled toilets and a child friendly Parents/Feeding Room.

    This project had all the usual challenges of working in a retail environment where disruption to the day to day operations is not an option.

    The circa $600k project was completed 2 weeks early in 10 weeks flat, without any disruption to the shopping centre tenants or customers.

  • Old house to Community Facility

    The client had purchased a large plot of land in Perth’s Eastern suburbs for the construction of a new Lifestyle Village.

    Pivotal to the success of any Lifestyle Village is the facilities and whilst it would be another year before the facilities would be built, there was an immediate need to provide a community building for the first phase of incoming residents to the village.

    The last remaining structure on the land was an old 60’s house, which was salvaged for transformation into an interim clubhouse, later to be used as a family centre for visitors to the village.

    This facility includes:

    • Swimming pool
    • Art and Craft workshop
    • Kitchen
    • Library
    • Chillout area

    This was a particularly challenging project as the delivery time was critical, so critical that we began construction from basic conceptual sketches as the architect completed the full specification.

    This was a true ‘design and construct’ project as we worked closely with the architect to design and achieve the most functional and stylish space that we could with what we had to work with.

    The results speak for themselves.. The client was so happy with HB’s performance that we were  awarded the contract to complete the $3.6M Village Clubhouse following this project.
