More Signs We’re Coming Back Stronger in Construction

Read our latest press release about a project that’s been reignited after being put on hold back in 2008 when the GFC hit …

Leading industrial and commercial builder Clarke’s Design & Construct has just commenced a new project that was put on hold back in 2008 when the Global Financial Crisis (GFC) hit, giving us more evidence that the construction industry is improving.

Andrew Clarke, founder of Clarke’s Design & Construct said:

“We’ve noticed things have been picking up in commercial construction for a while and this project continues that trend.”

Andrew continued…

“In around 2007 we were approached by Centurion Garage Doors to give them a price on a project that they had designed.  Then, due to the GFC, the whole project was put on hold indefinitely.”

Andrew continued…

“Then, in 2013, CGD re-contacted us to reignite the project.  Unfortunately, the Development Approval had lapsed so we had to start the whole process again.  On the positive side, it allowed us to re-design the whole development to maximise the site coverage and minimise the construction costs for them.”

Clarke’s Design & Construct provide a comprehensive building service.  They manage the entire project from design to completion. Experts in the field, they have 23 years of experience with a large variety of industrial and commercial construction projects, both in the Brisbane area and on the Gold Coast.
This development is situated on a 4 ha industrial block of land in Stapylton.  The total project comprises of two 10,000m² buildings, with stage one being divided into two tenancies.
The client said …

“We first started talking with Andrew Clarke about our project in 2007, pre-GFC.  Unfortunately the GFC stopped us in our tracks.  Now, in 2015 we have finally signed a building contract with Clarke’s to proceed with the development.”

When asked why they chose Clarke’s Design & Construct, the client said…

We were very impressed with Andrew and his team’s commitment to our project and found their approach to be very accommodating in ensuring we achieved the right blend of maximising our site coverage and achieving the right factory and office layout to suit our businesses Nothing seemed too much trouble for them in achieving the best outcome.”

The client continued…

Clarkes’ price was very competitive with the three other proposals/tenders we had received, and in fact, on close scrutiny of the specification and inclusions, we think they well and truly delivered the best value for money.”

And finally, the client said…

“Before we signed, we spoke to several of Clarkes’ recent clients who had nothing but praise for the work they had done, which left us feeling confident we had made the right choice.”
