Whilst many of our projects have a focus on land development for commercial ventures, primarily for tourism and industry, of late our commissions have been for residential homes in the similar style we developed for high-end holiday villas, these 5 star homes are being greatly appreciated for the increasingly expensive city and beach front locations.
Working mainly in Sydney as Australia unofficial capital continues to boom we enjoy this central location to the Asian clientèle that we frequent. A match made in heaven, meeting my husband and award winning builder Paul Lingard, our collaboration officiated as SeaBreeze Design & Construct.
For our personal development we are very interested in holistic healthy living, both in body and in our spaces. For building design that means we are heavily influenced by clean open light ventilated spaces, good water and alternative energy solutions to name a few.
Pacific Building Solutions was involved in a joint venture with Paul for the construction of a residential home in Maui Bay and Laucala Island Resort. Paul was very instrumental in managing the project and personally designing four of the resorts prized features – the Rock Lounge, Seagrass Lounge, Peninsula Residence and the ocean pool, which was carved directly into the rocks of the shore of the Overwater Residence. He fully understood the fundamentals of tropical construction and building in remote island locations and managing to overcome the typical obstacles faced in these challenging environments. We have no hesitation recommending Paul in whatever capacity he seeks to undertake.
During the civil construction phase Paul demonstrated the ability to lead and coordinate work outputs from other trades groups, and converse across a wide range of trade disciplines. Paul is actively committed to workplace safety and implemented initiatives such as 0% Alcohol Policy. I have no hesitation in endorsing Paul as a competent and communicative building supervisor, with the requisite skills to oversight a building project in a heavy industrial environment.
My building experience with Paul was nothing less than wonderful. I found Paul to be honest, hardworking and intelligent. He was able to perform both to date and budget. The house won the Royal Institute of Architects Gold Coast house of the year award in 2005. This has been the best building experience of my life and Paul comes with my highest professional recommendation.
I had the pleasure of working with Paul Lingard who was partner to the principle contractor for the construction management team on Laucala Island Resort, Fiji. Over the 18 months that we worked closely together Paul excelled in displaying an irrepressible “can do” attitude in the face of the most challenging circumstances in terms of unique design build structures, barely accessible work sites and logistical isolation. The result is some of the most dramatic structures in the southern hemisphere which will undoubtedly become iconic in the luxury tourism industry.
I have just had development approval to build a new home in Bronte. To say that Paul helped with the drawings of the new house would be an understatement. He has been responsible for 90% of that work. The architect has simply drawn up what was given to her by Paul in a series of sketches. In my dealings with Paul I have found him to be a very capable builder. I have no hesitation in recommending him to others.
