Thank you for Building Solutions Brisbane’s efforts and workmanship in the six years we have worked together at BP Refinery, Bulwer Island.
I would happily recommend your company for any fireproofing and concrete repairs. It was great to have some extra competition onsite who could keep low overheads and still have strong supervision.
Your staff always conducted themselves professionally, and were obliging to work in adverse weather conditions. I would happily recommend your company to others. Feel free to share this letter with others when tendering for work.
To anybody reading this, I would happily recommend and endorse Building Solutions Brisbane. They have worked onsite at the BP Refinery for over six years, with no safety issues. Tasks they undertook included structural remediation, concrete repairs, and fireproofing (removal and installation). Building Solutions Brisbane also conducted a fireproofing survey and assessment which allowed us to intervene and prevent further corrosion under fireproofing/insulation.

Over the past 2 years, Building Solutions have completed a number of different complex remedial works at the BP refinery in Brisbane. Ranging from vessel support rectification works, to fireproofing repairs, to cooling water basin wall replacements they have proposed and executed solutions of the highest quality.
At certain times they were faced with difficult situations, but to their credit the team was opena nd honest about the situation which meant any issues could be rectified immediately. Additionally they did everything they could to better their process and procedures to ensure the learning’s were captured for future projects.
Working in a Major Hazardous facility, the team was capable of meeting and exceeding the safety requirements to ensure the safety of all their workers, and others around them.
Over the 2 years, Building Solutions Brisbane definately grew as a company and I would recommend that they are considered for any of the services that they offer.

“This company was assigned the job to remove all asbestos from our Manual Arts building and replace all with new. This was a very difficult job with the amount of machinery/resources that were unable to be moved, but the company worked around these obstacles with professionalism.
This work was accomplished in a timely manner over the Christmas break and all was ready for school resumption. Another obstacle with this job was that we had already commissioned a company to give the whole building an internal repaint however again the company worked with us and the painting company to achieve the removal and replacement and repaint in the agreed timeframe. The outcome, due to the professionalism of this company, was we had all asbestos removed, new walls/ceilings replaced and the whole of the building painted for the start of the 2012 school year. I would recommend this company to any prospective client”

“The above company were engaged to upgrade our old Activity Centre in 2012. The work was completed over the Easter Break in order to have no interruption to our normal school day or routines. The company removed the asbestos and then re built and restored the activity centre. New walls, new ceiling were installed in the project. This activity centre is used each day by the local PCYC for after school care and also by many students of our school. It is now an enjoyable room to be utilised by all. The company were very easy to work with, the timeline given was kept to and the workers were willing and followed the correct school procedures and policies. The project ran smoothly from the first consultation to completion of all work promised.”

Michael Slater become known to me some ten years ago in March 2002 when he arrived in Australia from South Africa and started a company here in Brisbane called “Aerify Group” – specializing in structural rehabilitation which was later sold and absorbed into Transpacific. Transpacific four years later decided to focus on their core activities and Michael started Building Solutions Brisbane Pty Ltd specializing in structural probrems.
Michael studied in South Africa and is a graduate civil Technologist with a master’s diploma in structural engineering. He has a special interest inconcrete with an emphasis on structural problems and is also a member of the Concrete Institute.
Michael and his team have been able to assist me on site with the groundwork for detailed investigations and have the necessary specialist plant, labour and equipment. He and his company have prepared a budget and eventually when the project eventuates carried put the work in a professional manner.
Michael and his team have been able to complete major repair projects on time and within budget and perform the work safely.
Significant projects that we were involved in are, University of Queensland “J D Story Building” and other buildings on campus, sewer pump stations for Brisbane City Council and Morton Bay, Brisbane River walkway, the grain silos at Pinkenba and the cooling water tower at the Bp oil refinery.
I would have no hesitation in recommending Michael and Building Solutions Brisbane Pty Ltd, as a contractor for both minor or major construction and repair projects.

“Building Solutions Brisbane Pty Ltd and its predecessor, Areify, has been my preferred contractor for many concrete repair and building rectification projects in and around Brisbane over the last 10 years. Within the previous two years I have also been the structural engineer for two new houses in the lndooroopilly area of Brisbane that were constructed by Building Solutions Brisbane Pty Ltd. I have always been satisfied with the standard of work carried out on their projects and the ability of the company to meet agreed deadlines. I have appreciated the willingness of the company to go the “extra mile” to satisfy the expectations of various clients. I have no hesitation in recommending Building Solutions Brisbane Pty Ltd for any type of building repair and rectification work.”
