Gordon Street Garage


DEC 2020


Bar Fit Out




The Gordon St Garage Alfresco project was quite unique as it was one of those projects with a high level of client involvement though-out the project which created an ever changing scope which kept us on our toes.

The project consisted of 3 main areas being the new structure housing a bar / storeroom and two bathrooms. A custom made recycled timber Arbor over a new jarrah deck and a substantial hard and soft landscaping scope to be constructed in a derelict empty lot adjacent to the highly successful Gorgon St Garage in West Perth.

The site had a few difficult aspects for us to contend with. Primarily the neighbouring lot to the North is substantially lower and therefore we had very high retaining issues to deal with as we added approximately 350T of clean fill to get the ground level up to the adequate height to work with the existing Gordon st Garage venue next door. This created some logistical issue given the site is located in central West Perth. We have a great photo sequence of these works on our Dedicated Construction instagram page   

We love the final product and also happy that the builder & client relationship is as strong as ever, even after what was at times a challenging project.
