This week is cause for some celebration as our Batemans Bay office is now occupied by Amber who has relocated after earning her stripes in our Nowra office over the past three years. This move reinforces Edmiston Jones’ commitment to the Eurobodalla as we continue our 25 year history of providing architectural services to the region. I have travelled to Batemans Bay pretty much on a weekly basis for the last decade building on the relationships established in the early years by fellow director, Mark Jones. Historically, the Eurobodalla contributed to 50% of our workload and this has left a legacy of dozens of single dwellings, duplexes, housing for seniors and commercial developments. With a team of 24 enthusiastic individuals, working across three offices, we offer a diverse range of skills. Our background in educational facilities, as well as buildings promoting health and wellbeing, benefitted the design of Muddy Puddles, a Batemans Bay childcare centre. This unique facility provides therapy and education programs for young people with a disability and was described in a recent blog. The images below show that construction is progressing! Luxury residential apartments at Golf Links Drive called Gold is another Batemans Bay project currently under construction. This development allowed Edmiston Jones, to exercise our skill in specialised housing. To this, we added our in-house experts in Interior Architecture, accessibility and sustainability. In the next weeks a new team member, Stuart Scobie, will join Amber in the Batemans Bay office to add his extensive landscape architecture experience to the firm. With our total project construction value nearing $250 million, there is now sufficient scope to provide landscape design in-house. We know that the solution is more than the building and Stuart’s skill set will complement our architects and interior designers.
