As our followers on Facebook would have noticed, the Base Architecture team recently set up a flood relief task force to help clean up some affected suburbs around Brisbane and South-East Queensland. We received generous donations from Window Image, Mangano I.T., Contrast Constructions, and McIvor Constructions.

We visited Goodna, Chelmer and Graceville and did everything from clean windows, shovel mud, empty mud and dead fish out of a swimming pool/outdoor entertainment area, empty and clean items from houses, demolish walls, and most importantly supply a sausage sizzle to residents and helpers.

As well as this immediate help, we are also helping out the family of our Office Manager, Jessica Groves, who were severely affected by the flood. Sadly, her family’s home was flooded up to the second level, meaning that all the plasterboard, joinery and floors needed to be removed. We are all too aware of the fact that despite a week of hard work on our behalf lots of people in South-East Queensland will be recovering from the floods for a long time to come.

Now that the demolition has been completed at Jess’ place, we are continuing to be involved by helping to redesign the home to better suit the family’s needs. Hopefully out of a time of terrible hardship, some positive outcomes will be seen down the track — we’ll keep you up to date!
