Last week I was able to have some fun in a steel fabrication workshop helping Steve Galea out with the steel for Wrights Terrace. Upon seeing all the tools and raw material lying around, I was like a kid in a candy store. It was a great learning experience to be on the other side of things and a welcome change from sitting behind a computer.
Mr. Steve Galea
Photo of some of the steel columns that we were working on in the previous image in their new home in Prahran. The galvanized universal beam and columns around the bifold doors will remain expressed/exposed and you can see the beginnings of the aqueduct/gutter taking shape. The roofing went on this week and the retractable roof and flash new window planter box (which will go outside the dining room) should begin fabrication this week. Windows and doors are also slated to show up this week. It’s all happening.
In other news, it’s been another busy week with teaching starting up again at the University of Melbourne, this semester I am teaching three first year studios across two subjects. In addition, I presented concept schemes to two different sets of happy clients for projects in Armadale and Surrey Hills.
