As we start the new year, we are delighted to announce a new appointment! Our South Australian construction team would like to welcome Augusta Soteriou on board.

Augusta joins our team as the Design and Engineering Manager, with 20 years’ experience having previously worked for DPTI and Tonkin Consulting, she is highly respected throughout the SA construction industry.

Her inclusion to the team will further strengthen Schiavello’s expertise in delivering complex construction projects.

A 20m crane with Schiavello signage recently graced the St Kilda skyline as the Village Belle Hotel prepares for the next stage of construction.

Stunning drone footage captured the crane installation – along with some breathtaking views of St Kilda to go along with it.

Located on the corner of Barkly and Smith street, the glowing LED Schiavello sign is hard to miss at night!

 

To celebrate 50 years of creating, Schiavello Queensland hosted an intimate black tie dinner at the heritage listed Customs House beautifully nested in the heart of Brisbane. The lights of the iconic Story Bridge made for a picturesque backdrop as guests arrived for welcome drinks and canapés on the river’s edge. A jazz trio created the perfect atmosphere as guests entered the River room, once the Queen’s warehouse, for a 3 course dinner coupled with Schiavello’s Gioiello Estate wine. Thank you to all who attended and for being apart of a very special evening.

Building on 50 years of commercial success, the Schiavello Group is reaffirming its reputation within the Australian property landscape, with the appointment of Christopher Schiavello as Director of its NSW Construction operation.

Christopher has a strong commercial background and an in-depth understanding of Schiavello and its markets, having spent the last 10 years working in the Victorian construction industry. As a key leader of strategy development within the business, he is well placed to drive Schiavello’s construction service into a new era.

Christopher’s new role will not only be to lead NSW operations and diversification from fit-out to construction but to strengthen Schiavello’s national service model. “This appointment allows Schiavello to offer national clients a far more customer-centric service, with a single point of accountability across multiple locations,” says Peter Schiavello, Managing Director.

This move is part of a broader strategy to provide additional value to clients by offering technical support and knowledge sharing earlier on in the project lifecycle.

“Ultimately, it’s about developing long-term relationships with our clients and collaborators, to ensure success beyond the life of a project,” said Peter. “This is underpinned by our relentless commitment to knowledge and innovation, which helps us improve human experiences in various environments.”

With a growing reputation for unique property developments, Schiavello will also look to the Sydney market for development opportunities in the near future

 

Schiavello Construction NSW recently relocated to a new loft space in Foster Street, Surry Hills.

Since our establishment in 1966, Schiavello has been committed to Australian design and manufacturing. To celebrate 50 years of creating, Schiavello Sydney hosted a party last week at the stylish Dolton House.

To celebrate 50 years of our history, we looked to the future and asked the design community to imagine what our work lives would be by 2030. The design criteria looked at the originality of the design, the forces of change and how technology will impact these spaces.

The winning design by Woods Bagot Perth focused on human needs, was responsive to constant change, recognised the importance of relationships and considered organic spaces within buildings. Raffaele Tigani, General Manager of Schiavello International, presented the $5,000 prize and trophy to Tenille Teakle, Janie Green, Soo Bhin Han and Emily Marsh Russel from Woods Bagot.

Over 350 guests enjoyed champagne and a selection of culinary delights. A roaming saxophone player set the scene while guests mingled and networked. A DJ had guests partying late into the night. It was a memorable evening and celebration of Australia’s design talent.
