Here at Outside Concepts we custom design for your site. And that’s a critical consideration in the success of your project and one that stands us apart from our competitors.
Consider this site for a commercial deck in South Australia.
The owners of the small boutique brewery at Wilkadene near Renmark had identified a neglected and disused section of their property as the ideal location for a large deck. They required an informal eating and bar area to be built adjacent to an old wool shed where the brewery was installed. The site was steep, the river bank unstable and thus the structure had to be specifically designed and engineered not only for the unique construction challenges but to protect the delicate river environment.
Outside Concepts Riverland assessed the need for deep footings to allow for changing river levels and opted for full steel framing to prevent termite attack of any timber. These structural considerations had to be teamed to site specific construction to best preserve and enhance the existing view and natural amenity of the site.
The deck was designed on two levels for maximum access to the view and river setting and includes a ramp for pram and wheelchair use. Recycled Jarrah decking boards were sourced from Centennial Hall in Adelaide which were screwed into the timber joists to ensure stability, durability and longevity of the deck. Each of the 1100 boards were pre-drilled and countersunk and secured using two screws per junction to prevent splitting. Galvanised steel handrails and stainless steel wires with galvanised star pickets as wire spreaders, complete the outdoor area and provide a contemporary, modern edge to this warm and inviting setting.
