We have commenced works on the new Bill Buckle Service centre in Brookvale. Demolition of the existing factory is well under way and should be completed in the coming weeks ready to start the new works. Construction of the new 2500m2 Service Centre consists of a slab on ground, Tilt panels and large structural steel portal frames. Included in the new centre is a drive through car wash, fully tiled workshop and 28 hoists across the Toyota and Volkswagen areas. Completion is due mid 2019. Watch this space for more updates.

Was great to have both Newcastle and the Sydney Office together for the 2018 Team Building Day. It was any enjoyable and informative day including paintball and then a conference at the Rydges Parramatta to release our Annual report. The day was finished off with dinner / drinks in Parramatta. 

Project team members from Reitsma Constructions were invited today to the blessing and opening of the two new residential facilities at Campion College, Toongabbie. The residences were blessed by Archbishop of Sydney, Anthony Fisher OP and opened by the Honorable John Howard OM, AC. The outdoor occasion was windy, yet successful opening to mark the handover of the Stage 1 works to the College, and the students.    

Great to see the structural steel erected at St Paul's Anglican Church, Carlingford. The project is due for completion later this year.  Great to be working with DDC Architects and the Anglican Church Property Trust.

Reitsma are very excited to announce that we have received the 'High Commendation award' at the NSW & ACT steel excellence awards for our project - St Pius X school Adamstown.  Working with Catholic Schools Office and SHAC Architects, we were able to deliver this stunning new library for the School. The stunning design includes expansive Aramax roofing, grand timber amphitheatre, seniors learning area, modern study and creation spaces. A towering forecourt structure provides covered outdoor congregation space and links to existing and new buildings. 

Well done to our Newcastle project team of Jamie Gavin, Michael May, Matthew Jackson and Arin Pandermann for their tremendous work.

We had the great opportunity last Friday to attend the opening of the brand new women's facility for One80tc. This building in Kurmond, NSW at the bottom of the Blue Mountains, will provide further opportunity to continue the great work that One80tc already undertake. Reitsma are proud to support the work that One80tc already do with treating addictions in young people and are excited to see the transformations in the lives of many young women with this new facility. 

Congratulations to Pasindu Siriwardena on the completion of his first project with his new role as Project Manager for Reitsma. Well done on receiving Practical Completion on St Christopher's Catholic College, Panania. The $1.0 Million alterations and additions project has been completed for the kids to start using the classrooms next week. Well done on completing this challenging project working with Sydney Catholic Schools, Pepper Property and JDH Architects.

Our Newcastle team of Jamie Gavin, Michael May, Lee Fox and Arin Pandermann are nearing completion on our $8 million Stage 1 re-development of St Mary’s Catholic College, Gateshead.

The project, initially to be constructed as a single stage, was progressively broken down into four (4) separable portions, to enable partial occupation by the school. Whilst it has been challenging to work in and around the occupied school environment, the client has expressed their gratitude in providing teaching spaces earlier than expected.

The overall project includes construction of new Hospitality and VET faculties, and a network of internal carparks, roads and other site infrastructure.
