As part of our popular Meet The Team series, we’d like to introduce our workshop manager, Phil. Working tirelessly behind the scenes, this valued member of our team keeps things running smoothly in the shop, and ensures our multitude of projects stay on schedule. We chat all things concrete, his dream home and his favourite projects to date.

What do you love most about working with concrete?

I like that you can build anything with concrete and you’re only limited by your imagination.  Creating pieces and watching them come together on the shop floor is rewarding; knowing we are creating durable products that are sustainable and fit for a purpose.

Can you share your one of your Concrete Nation projects to date and why?

My favourite project to date is GCB [pod house] project at Duranbah; it was technically challenging and something that hasn't been done before. It required the team to think outside the box and consider the manufacturing, transport and logistics of each unique piece.

What is your favourite Concrete Nation product?

The Oasis Bath as they can be positioned inside or outside and can be created in any colour. The finish is a cream finish, which is a smooth finish concrete that you can’t get with any other product.

 Any design or interior trends you are loving at the moment?

I like rustic materials that are normally used outside incorporated into interiors.

If you could design and build your own home, what style would you opt for?

My new build would be a relaxed, coastal feel with inside/outside living

What is exciting you in the design industry right now?

Raw materials are being used in different ways and how lines are being blurred between indoors and outdoors.
