Work Experience – September 2013

We were very excited to have Isaac of Barker College spend two days with us for work experience. During his time Isaac experienced what it was like to work in our office. This included attending client presentation meetings and lodging a Development Application at Ryde Council. On Isaac’s second day he really enjoyed designing and drawing up a new house on our 3D software! Can you tell by his smile?

The Kimberley – 2013

We had an amazing adventure on the True North cruising through the Kimberley. There was so much action with lots of fishing, mud crabbing, oystering, rock climbing and viewing the 22,000 year old rock art. We had a remarkable afternoon visiting the remains of a WWII DC3 plane.It was also exhilarating standing on the boat getting drenched under waterfalls, going on heli-picnics to remote locations, watching the terrain, flora and fauna change, including the bird life and plenty of crocodiles.

  Broome – 2012

Broome is such a great place to holiday in the winter time and you get to see the most amazing sunsets on Cable beach. Most of the newer houses in Broome are built in light-weight material and they don’t bother putting gutters because when it rains its torrential.
