The talented team of urban designers at POMO were commissioned by the Sunshine Coast Council to design a unique space for the Sunshine Coast Hinterland’s Landsborough community.

“The designs emerged from a process of community consultation,” says POMO Design Director, Stephen Burton. “By listening to the locals, our team of urban planners and designers created from a considered and connected place.”

Once home to the Sunshine Coast’s logging industry, residents were keen to share the history of the region.

“The historical character of the town inspired our designs to create a public space that seamlessly blends into its surroundings,” says Stephen. “That’s why we selected natural materials like Australian ironbark timber.”

POMO collaborated with Sensus Building Group to bring their plans to life. The team at Sensus transformed more than 48 pieces of ironbark timber into this stand out custom seating area.

“Our Sunshine Coast based team of in-house expert craftsman approached each section of timber as a work of art,” says Sensus CEO, Sean Kenny. “Using their extensive woodworking experience they took great pride in creating these unique pieces for the community.”

The result is a beautifully fashioned public space that works impeccably with the historical and architectural features of the town.

By creating with the community in mind locals and visitors alike will be able to enjoy this custom seating area for decades to come.

Bespoke Seating for Landsborough

The Sensus Building Group Yandina Workshop was buzzing this week when more than 8,640 kilos of sustainable, Australian ironbark timber were delivered.

The 48 beams will be transformed into a custom outdoor seating area for Landsborough in the Sunshine Coast Hinterland.  The job commissioned by the Sunshine Coast Council and designed by POMO Architects will celebrate Landsborough’s rich history.

The Sensus team of expert in-house carpenters are approaching each piece of timber as a treasure. Creating something unique and beautiful from each piece of wood – 22 benches, log seats with downlighting – it will be a statement seating area for generations to enjoy.

We look forward to showing you the finished product once installation is complete.

Redcliffe Lagoon Amenities Block Upgrade

Redcliffe’s Settlement Cove Lagoon

Toes in the sand. Tropical view. You’d be forgiven for thinking you’re on holiday. For lucky locals Redcliffe’s Settlement Cove Lagoon is a little slice of paradise in the Moreton Bay Region.

During school holidays and Queensland’s balmy summers the lagoon’s toilets and changing areas are high traffic zones. Over the years the facility has seen water damage, mold creep in and general wear and tear. That is why Moreton Bay Regional Council earmarked the amenity block for an upgrade in 2020.

Sensus Building Group were pleased to be awarded the contract to modernize this public space.

“There’s nothing we enjoy more than delivering an outstanding result for our clients,” says Sensus Project Manager, Ashley Byrne. “Our team of building maintenance specialists completely transformed the amenities block into a contemporary facility for the community.”

In early spring Ashley and the rest of our team of local in-house tradespeople renovated the facility for future generations to enjoy.

Refurbishment Highlights

  • Installed new toilets and partitions
  • Repairs to existing tiling, sinks
  • Modern seating
  • Internal and external waterproofing
  • Internal and external painting
  • Repaired building defects
  • Removed and replaced all doors and jambs

Here at Sensus Building Group we are firm believers in championing sustainable building practices and minimising our environmental footprint.

How do you renovate a floating pontoon while simultaneously ensuring debris stays clear of the natural environment? This was the challenge before Sensus Project Manager, Michael Taylor, and his team when they started works on the over-the-water Warner Lake Pontoon.

“Before construction even began, we knew maintaining the integrity of the lake would be of the upmost importance,” says Michael. “Put simply, it’s our duty of care to minimise our environmental footprint.”

Our team of in-house construction experts proposed innovation solutions to safely transform the space.

“A core element of the work included sanding the pontoon’s decking platform that had seen wear and tear over the years,” says Michael.

“To prevent any residues escaping the site we inserted able rods, polyurethane rods, in between the deck treads so product or dust couldn’t fall through the deck timbers.”

“Our team then went a step further, wrapping plastic sheets underneath and up the sides encasing and sealing off the structure. We utilized dust extractors to stop dust from being generated and if any dust did escape – it was captured in the enclosed environment.”

The team also secured a power generator to provide a safe source of electricity for the site.

Back on dry land the site’s concrete walkway had seen better days and was up for demolition. Instead of just removing it, the team poured new concrete and then adhered it to a checker plate ramp.

“To help the pontoon entrance withstand wear and tear we concreted the area and then adhered a disability compliant checker plate ramp,” says Michael. “By reinforcing the ramp with concrete, it should withstand the elements for years to come.”

The renovated pontoon now sits serenely ready for patrons to view the picturesque Warner Lake. For the Sensus Team it’s all about delivering an excellent product that exceeds expectations, every time.

Preserving Pieces of History

The old saying goes ‘if these walls could talk’ and that adage rings true for the role historical buildings have played across South East QLD.

Sensus CEO, Sean Kenny at the historic Samsonvale Community Hall.

To ensure the structural and historical integrity of these buildings Sensus is proud to partner with the local councils to restore these pieces of our past.

Recently the team completed renovations on historic community halls in the picturesque towns of Samsonvale and Bellthorpe.

“Restoring historical buildings is an important part of maintaining our vibrant heritage,” says Sensus CEO, Sean Kenny. “In the picturesque hamlet of Samonsvale, the team installed an upgraded disability compliant ramp in-line with building’s historical style. They also fixed guttering and upgraded the backstairs.”

At Bellthorpe restoration works transformed almost century old windows back to their original glory.

“We worked closely with the local council to identify historically accurate woodwork, frames and latches,” says Project Manager, James Lee. “The council selected cedar wood to align with the original building.”

“We sourced traditional hardware that matched the original latches. The charm of these windows is you actually push them up and secure them with a ‘sash lift,” says James.

At Sensus we take great pride in preserving our historic buildings so they can be enjoyed for future generations of Queenslanders.

 From sporting park upgrades to historic hall restorations our team of in-house construction experts are working with local councils to make sure facilities are ready for re-openings.

Sensus Carpenter, Matthew Heading on site

Moreton Bay Region’s facilities will be back bigger and better as restrictions ease thanks to local investment.

By fast-tracking essential construction projects, Moreton Bay Region Mayor, Peter Flannery says the whole community will benefit.

“One of the best ways Moreton Bay Regional Council can support our residents is by accelerating work to ensure local businesses have local contracts so they can keep locals employed,” Cr Flannery said.

“Through our asset maintenance program, Council will pump $4 million into our local area to help businesses and the economy through the coronavirus pandemic.”

Brendale based construction company, Sensus Building Group, has partnered with Moreton Bay Regional Council to deliver on these essential projects during lockdown and beyond.

“During the past few months, we have worked on a variety of projects across the region including community hall renovations, sporting facility upgrades and historic building restorations,” Sensus Building Group CEO, Sean Kenny said.

“Because the Council have moved projects forward, Sensus has been able to keep our local team members employed and provide pivotal works for our local subcontractors and suppliers.”

“This translates into more than 50 local families who are shopping and spending in the community.”

The Sensus team are now working on external upgrades at the John Oxley Reserve Community Centre including replacing decaying posts, rectifying trip hazards and internal facility painting.

The flow on effects from these construction projects are already benefiting the broader community.

As restrictions ease across the region the Sensus team are working hard ‘behind the scenes’ to ensure Council facilities are ready to welcome back residents.

Harbour Town Police Beat

One of Australia’s largest shopping centres now has a fully renovated police beat.

Harbour Town is one of the Gold Coast’s busiest shopping centres with more than 10 million visitors a year and 240 stores.

A permanent police presence is a welcome addition to this bustling outlet mall.

“Having a police presence will make a huge difference in deterring crime,” local MP Sam O’Connor told 7 News Gold Coast late last year. “Storeowners and shoppers don’t just want to see police drive by with sirens on. They want to be able to talk to them. It’s about community engagement and that’s what police beats are all about.”

During March, Sensus Building Group completely transformed an existing space into Harbour Town’s new police beat featuring a:

  • Front reception area
  • Police interview room
  • Storeroom for confiscated items
  • Sitting area out the back

“By working closely with our government client and centre management we were pleased to deliver a high-quality product within a short time frame,” says Sensus MD, Zane Taylor. “It’s great to know that this facility is helping our police officers keep Queenslanders safe.”

Essential Services Building Experts

At Sensus we’re proud to partner with local, state and federal governments to continue making Queensland a great place to live. We are an experienced essential services builder with substantial experience renovating ambulance stations and police works. As a specialist government builder, we have also delivered a range works for: schools and universities; libraries; housing commissions; prisons; childcare centres; and civil works.
