Pelenoy Constructions Pty Ltd was engaged to design and construct a predominatley commercial and industrial development on behalf of FKP Commercial Developments Pty Limited in 2006.
The works was undertaken at one of our projects known as ‘J6’ at 6 Jubilee Avenue, Warriewood in Sydney’s northern beaches. The contract value was in the order of $12,775,000 (excl GST). The works were undertaken via an AS4902 General Conditions of Contract for Design and Construct under a fixed lump-sum cost arrangement.
The project consisted of an array of commercial suits, industrial units and large complex common area in the form on-grade and upper podium decks capable of parking cars and rigid trucks. A child care centre and cafe were also included as part of the works. Largely a concrete structure, Pelenoy deployed due care and skill for both pre-cast and in-situ concrete elements of the design.
The works were undertaken in a timely fashion, within the contract program and without dispute. Challenges faced were readily overcome and some six years beyond completion, the building is standing the test of time. Tenants speak highly of the development.
I found Peter Waud to be a hands-on Director of Pelenoy, attending design meetings, leading the on-site team with direction and assisting FKP when required at an authorities level. Pelenoy went above their contract requirements to assist FKP in delivering its requirements under the development consent, in an environmentally sensitive area adjacent to Narrabeen Creek.
I would consider Pelenoy to be a “no fuss” builder that is willing to find solutions agreeable to both the principal and the contractor in order to get the works done, but at all times, in accordance with principal’s requirements and design intent.
I can recommend Pelenoy for projects of a similar nature and cost and would employ them again, should the need arise.Back to all posts
