We have enjoyed a sound working relationship with Westlake Punnett since 2000, and have found Greg and his team to be reliable, professional and a great ally, whether as a sole consultant on a simple project, or part of a larger team on complex developments.
Westlake Punnett work closely with us to ensure that the structural systems on architecturally challenging projects are investigated and resolved, as well as being clearly documented, practical to construct, and mindful of tight construction budgets.
Through my business as a Building Designer and Building Planner I have worked closely with the staff at Westlake Punnett on a large variety of projects since 2001.
Together we have produced the designs for many of the industrial buildings in Flinders Estate as well as many medium density and domestic projects.
I have always found the experience of Greg, Simon and the team to be a great help during the design development phase of our the projects and their work is always of a high quality. I would not hesitate to recommend Westlake Punnett to any client.
As the Co-Director of a construction company specialising in the removal of lifts within hi-rise buildings we require an engineering firm that can design with an open mind and often with very small lead times. Pat from Westlake Punnett has designed a variety of different lifting beams and also conducted site visits to engineer structural building changes. I have found Pat to be honest and extremely professional and proficient. I would definitely recommend them to others.
Having had a great experience a few years prior with Westlake Punnett, we didn’t hesitate to engage Greg, Dave and the team on our very own development project.
The site we acquired had numerous civil hurdles that required an in depth knowledge of local planning laws, current regulations and forthcoming state regulations that all had to be factored and tailored to our specific development budget and adapted to a timeline.
Key problems overcame included;
- Site drainage overflows onto council land, required minimization and was achieved through onsite investigation and council mediation.
- Affordable storm water network devised, achieved by upgrading holding tanks and increasing pipe outlets for even disbursement.
- Our site levels were specifically designed to utilize a large concrete foreground as a driveway. Minimal site excavation was conducted whilst still meeting council gradients and saving the project considerable money.
On a personal note, being one of our first developments there was a lot to take in and a lot to comprehend. Not only was every aspect explained in terms that were easy to understand and also follow, the team accompanied myself to council meetings to represent our project.
