As clearly depicted in the featured image, the Colac Uniting Church, also known as the St. Andrews Presbyterian Church is in dire need of attention. And with the church making contact with G.H.Veitch Stonemasons, we are now happy to announce that agreement has been made for our services to protect the church and its importance within the Victorian regional township of Colac. Our interest in helping to restore and protect the church and its associated structures, will ensure the structures integrity well into the future.

The beautiful tracery window on the southern aspect of the church is our priority. We will be removing the ornate lead glass work in order to protect the original imagery contained.

As the tower is shifting noticeably away from the structure, it will be stabilised and prevented from further movement; safe-guarding the public from harm was the church’s priority, whilst protecting the ornate lead-glass work, and the remaining structure, from any further damage.

Contact and subsequent agreement has been made for G.H.Veitch for our Consultative and Heritage services that are required for the protection of the Church and its adjoining structures.

Together with the Uniting Church of Australia, we will seek to remedy, maintain and enhance this beautiful church with its unique stone composition and design.

Stand by for further progress reports in line with project timelines.

Designing Stone Homes: Resilience in Bush Fire, Seismic Activity and Extreme Weather Events

Deciding on which structure to build and out of which construction materials is always a finely-strung operation. When designing a new build house or considering reconstructive works to existing aged and dated structures, the best materials need to be sort in priority of efficiency and functionality. Now double the workload if you are looking to build in a Bush Fire Zone.

Differing products and designs on the market at present offer kit homes or what we call “flat-pack” options. The Stone Blue Homes cladding system is anything but. We custom design to cater for your location, factoring in any unfavourable physical conditions such as earthquakes and extreme weather events such as high wind, hurricane or cyclones.

In conjunction with new builds, Stone Blue Homes offers remedial solutions by way of our reinforcement systems in order to strengthen and revamp existing house structures.

This means that any house can be clad in our stone; firerating, weatherproofing, reinstating existing homes irrespective of locale.

Our structural cladding system that is fabricated from Australian Steel, will also allow for any wall covering internally including the utilisation of our sleek natural stone, inside, as well as out.
