BUY A BALE by Holly Leikvold

Across Australia there are thousands of farmers who need our help to keep their cattle, sheep and horses alive through one of the worst droughts in living history and after the cessation of live cattle exports, no wet season and fires.

Rural Aid is an organisation that supports rural communities suffering drought, fire and flood. They provide assistance to individuals and communities as a whole.

With programs such as “Buy A Bale” this allows us to provide Fodder, Farm Rescue and Farm Army to provide Farm Hand assistance.

"The Therry Building" The first stage of a 20-year Masterplan by Holly Leikvold

“The Therry Building” refurbishment is the first stage of a 20-year master plan to deliver a true campus style environment to St Ignatius College, Riverview. The master plan will reposition all teaching and community functions, more centrally away from the extensive heritage frontages by completion of this plan – only then will the true potential of the Riverview footprint be realised.

This first step was by no means, a small tentative movement. It was a bold and challenging stride forward - that will still be relevant at Master-plan's completion.

The capability of design to enhance educational environs through a construction envelope is never more important than the present day. The educationalists exhort us, and when achieved, creates a flexibility of space potential that is bench-marked by the clean delineation of the finishes – both internally and externally. Be that a composite metal product delightfully juxtaposed with an engineered timber resource, or “an omnium forum” that inspires all participants.

Architects always profess “form and function “as their true core values in design, and this project expresses that desire fully.

It’s not often the ladies from Quasar Head Office get to visit site, however Quasar’s Marketing Coordinator, Holly had the opportunity to see the final touches being completed a week out from handover to the College and who better to showcase their work than 1976 “Old Boy” Tim Perrignon (Quasar Site Manager) and John Chidiac (Site Manager).

THE GREAT POUR! by Holly Leikvold

The Great Pour.jpg

Last Thursday saw Quasar deliver our biggest concrete pour to date!

 An area of 1840m2 and a volume of up to 800m3 of concrete was poured & placed as the finished slab to the Level 4 outdoor nursery of the Bunnings Caringbah project.

 With over 80 men on site, 120 concrete trucks, and 2 concrete pumps strategically positioned, the boys dug deep and achieved an incredible result, all in a days’ work.


It was a pleasure once again partnering NBRS Architects and Tara Anglican School for Girls on the latest signature project for the greater Tara community. This building represents a contemporary architectural space for worship and large school gatherings. Quasar are buoyed by the result and acknowledge that this result has been the collective efforts of subcontractors, architects and all stakeholders involved.

THE IGNIS PROJECT // STAGE 1 by Matt Dampney

The St Ignatius’ College Ignis Project will commence in December 2016 with the redevelopment of the Therry building.
The design facilitates learning while supporting pastoral care of our students and celebrating our Ignatian foundations. Containing new, porous spaces that blend natural light and flexible working areas for both students and teachers, the new Therry Building will offer the best facilities for the agile, interactive and collaborative learning environment of today and tomorrow.
Teaching capacity will increase from 14 to 24 learning areas, accommodating multiple formal and informal learning settings allowing for combined classes. All of this consistent with modern 21st century teaching approaches.
Six house areas ensure complementarity between teaching and pastoral care. Facilities for support, counseling, learning and socialising, provide a place to call home for every boy. And, in the Ignatian tradition of education it will facilitate and encourage reflection and action as part of the learning process.
Graphic and striking in form, the design follows an energy efficiency hierarchy, harnessing renewable energy and passive building systems to provide a comfortable and healthy learning environment.
Operational in 2018, the new Therry building marks the beginning of the Ignis Project, an exciting new era at Saint Ignatius’ College, Riverview.
