Meet Sensus Building Group’s Sunshine Coast Project Manager, James Lee.

Next time you visit a Sensus Sunshine Coast site you’re bound to bump into our experienced project manager and resident Irishman, James Lee.

James has been with the business for the past eight years and has managed construction builds across the region. On any given day you can find him on Sensus sites across Noosa, Buderim, Caboolture and even out in regional Queensland.

“The lads build and construct a diverse array of projects for our clients. During the past few months, we’ve seen Independent Living Units in Buderim, council maintenance upgrades in Nambour and large-scale Catholic school works in Gympie,” says James.

“I’m often busy visiting our tradies and trusted local sub-contractors on sites across the Sunshine Coast. No matter what site I visit, I always know that our team pride themselves on delivering to the highest standards.”

Before joining the business, James ran a successful construction company in Ireland.

“I built houses from the ground up in Ireland – transforming vacant lots into turn keys homes,” says James. “We also renovated residential works, extensive council maintenance jobs and historic buildings. A highlight was transforming a former orphanage into residential living.”

And the main difference between construction projects in Australia and Ireland? The weather!

“Here in Australia, we usually have clear skies to complete exterior works. But back in Ireland there were times we would have to delay projects by two, three weeks because of the rain,” says James.

A carpenter by trade and project manager by heart, James also worked on large scale projects in Sydney, including The Star Casino, before moving back to Ireland, and then settling on the Sunshine Coast with his family in 2013.

“My wife Lorraine and I have three children so it’s important to me to work for a company that values flexibility,” says James. “Our leadership team is supportive of the lads and I maintaining a work life balance. Before Covid, I was able to take a few weeks off every now and again to take the family back to Ireland.”

And while another trip to Ireland may be a while off, James is looking forward to the exciting future projects on the horizon at Sensus.

Regional QLD Aged Care Works Wheelchair Ramps Bathroom Bedroom Renovation Construction

The Sensus team of aged care construction experts have been busy out west. From Chinchilla to Nanango renovations have been taking place to enhance facilities for regional aged care residents.  

Upgrading Aged Care Facility Wheelchair Ramps

Spending time in the outdoors is now easier for residents at a Chinchilla aged care community. The Sensus team have transformed the centre’s two wheelchair ramps allowing safe and easy access to their much-loved vegetable garden.

“Our in-house team of construction experts did everything from pouring concrete, exacting carpentry to meticulous painting,” says Sensus Project Manager, James Lee.  “By having a trusted team, our client could rest easy knowing that the Sensus employees on site had the necessary flu shots and background requirements.”

The team completely replaced the first ramp with all new timber. While the second ramp was a new build using a combination of timber and concrete elements.

The wheelchair access ramps were also varnished with anti-slip sealant to make the space even safer for those walking down the area.

Our latest renovation completely transformed a dated apartment into a modern light filled living space.

“As design and construct experts we work closely with our clients to create the perfect place for residents to call home,” says Sensus Project Manager, Joel Quillan. “By working in partnership with key stakeholders we create fully functional and stylish living spaces.”

The team have been busy the past few months transforming retirement living units across Brisbane, the Sunshine Coast and the Gold Coast.

In our latest Brisbane unit renovation, the team identified an opportunity to remove a bulky column in the middle of the room. Once the column was demolished the space was completely transformed – feeling like it had doubled in size. The new open plan kitchen was finished off with stone benchtops and soft close drawers.

Watch the transformation unfold

Demolition and construction were done in accordance with the village’s noise minimization policy.

“As retirement living building experts, we understand the importance of taking into consideration the needs of the village residents,” says Joel. “Our team and sub-contractors adhered to strict noise guidelines to ensure minimal disruption. We also follow all Covid-19 site safety procedures.”

The bathroom was another stunning transformation. With the future owners in mind the team installed grab rails and zero-transition flooring for convenience.

“We were pleased to deliver the project ahead of schedule,” says Joel. “Our client was ecstatic with the finished product. We take real pride in crafting boutique spaces for retirement living 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.”
