SHEARGOLD OFFICE NOW TRULY EMBODIES OUR CREED OF INSPIRING SPACES
With the Sheargold ideology of “Inspiring Spaces” in mind, the start of 2018 saw the team at Sheargold working in a truly innovative environment. The latter part of 2017 was spent in somewhat cramped temporary offices, just around the corner, in order to keep an eye on progress. What started out as a two month re-fit turned into a four month total makeover into a space that combines both boutique urban and industrial looks to perfection.
But it was worth it. Our now state of the art, contemporary bespoke office is eliciting a heartfelt WOW from all who first enter the office. Exposed ceilings, temperature controlled window dressings and air-conditioning, bespoke boardroom table (and matching ping pong table), recycled timbers and energy-efficient sensor lighting, an abundance of open communal work space and living greenery, all combine to create what is indeed an inspiring space designed for the comfort and efficiency of the Sheargold team
UDIA NSW Roy Sheargold Scholarship Winner Announced for 2018
The Roy Sheargold Scholarship, awarded each year by UDIA NSW in conjunction with Sheargold, enables young industry professionals to conduct research or further their education.
The 2018 winner is Tony Amidharmo, a former structural engineer and now Assistant Development Manager with Aqualand, currently working on the iconic Blue at Lavender Bay.
Tony is greatly interested in BtR (Build to Rent), presently a hot buzzword in the Australian property industry. He plans to use the scholarship monetary contribution to investigate the existing BtR models in the UK and US, and to challenge the BtR models currently being trialled in Australia, in an attempt to determine if the BtR is economically viable in Australia, and whether it is only viable to large scale developers and investors?
We, at Sheargold, are proud to be supporting Tony in this innovative research which potentially could help unlock the BtR sector in Australia and provide additional housing supply to address the current housing affordability crisis.
SHEARGOLD WINS PRESTIGIOUS AWARD FOR VISTA PARK
Sheargold have taken out the Urban Development Institute of Australia (UDIA) Award for Excellence in Marketing - Land Development for their unique Vista Park development in the Illawarra.
The state-wide award recognised the creative and innovative approach adopted by the Vista Park team mixed with strong branding and appreciation of the market. The marketing included virtual reality goggles, water-repelling art installations, seed woven hand-signed cards and giveaways of John Deere ride-on mowers and monetary vouchers for landscaping, all to reflect a semi-rural lifestyle.
“With so many strong competitors from across the state it was a real honour to have Vista Park recognised in these prestigious awards by our peers in the industry. We also need to thank the broader project team as well as Vista Park residents who have embraced the vision and community building approach we have strived to deliver.” said Michael Sheargold, Managing Director of Sheargold, the developer behind Vista Park.
A telling comment by the judges was:”For a small team they definitely over-delivered, and this award is highly recommended and very well deserved. A brilliant campaign.”
