Townsville Women’s Centre

Townsville women’s centre has been handed over with a smile. It was a great opportunity and experience working for such a professional building company in undertaking and completing the carpentry package for Woollam Constructions. Being part of building an organisation for such a good cause was goal ticking and we can’t wait to do it again. This is Carl our site supervisor showing off his skills in commercial leading hand from start to handover.

Amazing Grace Early Learning Centre

Where do I start? Winning John Gray Constructions’ biggest project thus far was amazing. Creating four months of work for not only my team but for my contractors and suppliers as well.

All in all, the project was a dream to build. She was built stick by stick just as we pulled her down.

We used James Hardie claddings for the external walls, which meant that it is as fire and termite resistant as a block or concrete wall, but much cooler in summer and is easy to work with should any future alterations were desired.

The clients? Loving it! Any changes that had to be made weren’t a drama. Even a late request by the clients for a back door – no worries at all. John Nawar and his team would be happy to show anyone through their building.
