In early 2014 Coastech Constructions was engaged to complete an extension and renovation to the Act For Kids branch at 31 Olsen Avenue, Labrador on the Gold Coast.
Act for kids was first established in 1988 dedicated to servicing children and families with the goal for all Australian children to have the safe, happy childhood they deserve. The Act for kids organisation provides a wide range of support for families under pressure and at risk of child abuse and neglect, and intensive therapy for children and young people who have experienced the trauma of abuse.
Their mission statement: To prevent and treat child abuse and neglect
Their vision: All kids have a safe and happy childhood, free from abuse and neglect
Their values: We are a respectful, ethical team that is caring, courageous and collaborative
Act for kids where seeking quality and experienced local Gold Coast Builders to tender for the project, when they where refereed Coastech Construction by local Gold Coast firm Mark Traucnieks Consulting Engineers, they felt very comfortable with the professionalism and approachability the Gold Coast building firm offered.
The scope included extending the building 46 square meters to allow for more open plan office space, Building in the existing patio, raising the slab and converting to a new staffroom/ kitchen with commercial level finishes with modern joinery complimented by rubber 1m x 1m rubber floor tiles.
The rest of the building was upgraded with new commercial carpets, fresh paint, new lightening and security monitoring system.
The project ran smoothly for a great cause "We where very happy with the overall result of the project and where glad we could work for such a great organisation that supports the Gold Coast community..." Matt Thompson - Director of Coastech Constructions.
