Big things are happening in South Australia for Caledonia. We have been awarded iconic South Australian projects, continued our commitment to investing in our employees, and as a result, we are expanding our operation in Adelaide.
All go on the GPO: Redeveloping the historic site at Victoria Square
Built has recently celebrated its biggest project win in South Australia! It was awarded the $100m 20-storey GPO Exchange in Adelaide.
The project is the first stage of the redevelopment of the historic Adelaide GPO site at Victoria Square.
We have been engaged by Built to provide the scaffolding for their GPO Towers in the CBD. The project, which is a showcase development in Adelaide, will include:
- 16 floors of commercial office space with an integrated fit out
- A new ground floor foyer
- A retail precinct and a two-floor car park
We are proud to be partnering with Built on this iconic development and re-establishing our ongoing working relationship in South Australia.
Another South Australian Icon gets a Facelift!
We are once again proud to be supporting Hansen Yuncken with their recent award of the upgrade to Her Majesty’s Theatre in Adelaide.
Work has already commenced with the installation of a structural steel gantry and a public hoarding adjacent to the theatre. We worked closely with the council and HY to ensure that the hoarding was erected in line with the allocated road closure.
Work will commence on the 2,000m2 scaffold to the Eastern Elevation of the building shortly.
The first image shows the proposed final design of the theatre’s facade, while the second image shows the first stages of the 60m hoarding.
Sellicks Beach Temple: Nan Hai Pu Tuo Temple of Australia
We have been asked by BMD to provide the scaffolding for the Nan Hai Pu Tuo Temple at Sellicks Beach, South Australia.
The scaffold will entirely be of Layher material and will total approximately 200T once fully erect. Our crew have been careful when navigating around the extremely valuable Buddha statue pictured above. The finished project will comprise of a shrine, pagoda, retirement accommodation, and a Chinese garden.
Working with BMD on their refurbishing of the Temple is another cracking job to add to our portfolio!
Speed of Trust Training Weekend
“Like a drop of water in a pond, your personal credibility has a ripple effect on your relationships, team, organisation, and market – even on society.” Stephen M. R. Covey.
We are strongly committed to investing in the wellbeing of our employees.
The Caledonia Group Leadership Team in South Australia and Western Australia recently took part in Franklin Covey’s Speed of Trust training in Adelaide, South Australia. The team received an overall insight into the outcomes of trust across all areas of self, relationships, organisation, market and in our wider society. They also gained an invaluable understanding of the outcomes of their individual actions and behaviours when it comes to trust.
The training weekend was a highly successful one that brought the team together thanks to the great initiative by the company’s Directors.
We are expanding our Operation in Adelaide
Due to the continual growth of business in South Australia, our Adelaide office is getting bigger!
Work is now underway on the 100m2 extension which will increase general office space and will allow for additional meeting rooms and offices.
We look forward to completing and seeing the end product which should be completed by the end of August.
