CLARKE'S PROVES BIG BUCKS AREN'T EVERYTHING

THE new Buildsafe headquarters in Arundel delivered by Clarke's Design and Construction has taken out the award for a Commercial Building up to $5 million.

The nine-month project features a hand-built replica shipping container that was turned into an interior meeting room where original dimensions were modified for seating arrangements.

Originally commissioned as the Buildsafe company moved base from Yatala, the contract was based on the recommendation of a previous client.

Founder and owner of Clarke's Design and Construction, Andrew Clarke, says he only subcontracts to electricians, painters and glazers, preferring to personally pick labourers himself.

The non-traditional raking of the interior steps added a degree of difficulty to construction, but Andrew says he is particularly proud of the high quality finish on the interior.

"The client employed a separate interior designer which collaborated with us and ensured aesthetic breakout rooms and smoking areas," he says.

"I'm a stickler for high quality and the boys don't walk away from a job unless I'm happy and I know the client is happy."

Andrew says Clarke's Design and Construction puts a lot of effort into the evaluation of land beforehand and completes its own drafting and design work.

"The next step is we make our own foundation and tilt panels and manufacture our own steel in our factory this enables good quality and also time assurance with finishing the project," he says. 

Buildsafe has been highlighted as a great success and portfolio piece, winning Clarke's Design and Construction three other projects as a result.
