Kilbury Group have recently completed the concrete package for the Icon Cancer Bunker at the Holmesglen Hospital in Moorabbin. The concrete package consisted of bored piers, a slab on ground and 1,200mm thick in-situ bunker walls. The structure was to be constructed inside the existing hospital.

The most complicating aspect of the package was the 1,200mm wide bunker walls. This was due to the lack of access at the external face of the wall. Kilbury were able to design the pour so that the external 200mm of the wall was sprayed with shotcrete with the shotcrete wall then being used as the external formwork for the internal 1,000mm wide in-situ wall.

We were absolutely delighted with the extremely high quality of the walls. Overall we found Kilbury Group to be an excellent contractor who were easy to deal with and were very flexible when changes were made to the drawings. Excellent work from the crew, and in completing to satisfaction of follow on trades with no call backs for defects. We would have no hesitation in recommending Kilbury Group to other builders.

Kibury Group were engaged to complete the structure package of Symbio Laboratories in Ravenhall. The project consisted of 3 levels including pile caps, footings, slab on ground and two 4000m2 suspended slabs.

From the first meeting I was impressed with Kilbury’s management in regard to knowledge of their trade and safety requirements. The project was completed without delays and defects were attended to diligently.

I look forward to working with Shane and his crew in the future.

“APM Group engaged Kilbury Group to construct shear walls over 6 levels at the Causeway Hotel, 273-278 Little Collins Street, Melbourne. The existing structure was built in 1935 and, as is the case with such buildings, there were many difficulties and unknowns.

We found Kilbury Group to be a great company to deal with from the site staff right through to the Director. They were quick not just to build, but to respond, and showed a level of professionalism that we have come to expect from subcontractors of a high calibre. They assisted in resolving onsite issues that arose due to the complexities of the project and their opinions and recommendations carried great weight.

We are very satisfied with Kilbury Group and look forward to building a stronger relationship in the future.”

“I am just writing to you to say thank you for the works that you have completed here at Peninsula Grammar Creative Design Centre.

Your team of, Shane Connaughton (Project Manager), Ross Hagenmuller (Supervisor) and Tyler Hintz (Foreman) were a pleasure to work with. The Concrete and the Formwork was accurate and of good quality. Safety was of a high standard, handrails, barcaps and all procedures were carried out as per the submitted SWMS. The formwork and concrete programme was achieved ahead of our Program and allowed following trades to start earlier.

Again, Thanks for your great work, Communication and planning. Hopefully we will work together on future projects together.”

“Balmain & Co. engaged Kilbury Group to undertake the FRP for the Blower Building and Transformer Slab at the Western Treatment Plant. This was a project that had tight tolerances and required a high level of attention to detail.

The project was completed on program and we were extremely happy with the quality of Kilbury’s work as well as with the professionalism and conduct of their crew onsite.

We look forward to working with Kilbury Group in the future and would have no hesitation in recommending them to other builders for their FRP packages.”
