This Currarong Building Project Brief
Located on the South Coast of New South Wales, Sanders Constructions Projects were engaged to create a dream home on a lovely property in Currarong.
Owners, David and Jos, have a keen interest in environmental solutions and this formed a major focus on their design brief. Sustainability is a passion for Sanders Construction projects and we love it when clients of ours come to us with proactive ideas.
This Currarong Building Project had an extremely complex design which involved a lot of coordination and collaboration with the quite detail driven and technically minded clients.
As a somewhat abstract design, we had to approach this Currarong Building Project with an open mind, and we also had to put a lot of trust and faith on the innovative and ‘out-of-the-box’ thinking that the architect exhibited.
Obstacles that we overcame
In the ground
Due to the location of the site, it was expected that the house would be built on top of a solid rock shelf. Upon excavation, however, it was discovered that the ground consisted of large and small boulders, making for uneven and at times unstable foundations.
We worked in with engineers to identify the most suitable way forward. At one stage this involved recruiting a large excavation rock-saw to cut trenches in the rocks as well as altering the construction method for the small polished concrete slab.
This Currarong building project’s outcome
As with many highly architecturally detailed homes, there are obstacles that need to be navigated. Some of them being far more obvious than others.
Detail was at the forefront of this project, all the way through its development. The clients were very attentive and knowledgeable in the way of what was being done, which meant that we had to rise to the occasion and deliver excellence.
This attention to detail resulted in a finished project, worthy of attention. From concept to creation, there are so many amazing facets to this home that in hindsight, we couldn’t be more proud of. This home truly is an amazing spectacle, and the clients are ecstatic with the end result as you can see from their glowing testimonial below.
Warren and the team at Sanders Construction projects, communicated extremely well, with his emails and texts detailed, clear and timely. We thoroughly enjoyed the build process and getting to know his crew, and subcontractors, particularly those who live in the same village.
When we took ownership of our new home in May 2018 we were pleased to find that the extensive input from our building designer, Dick, and the workmanship and attention to detail of Warren and his team had come together in a home that is wonderful to live in. Warm in winter, with protection from the westerlies and cool in summer with the north easterly winds doing their thing, in the place of air conditioning
The views of the water, mountains and bush never cease to delight us.
