Building on the recent success of the employment of our very first Aboriginal & Torres Strait Islander apprentice, our Indigenous Engagement Manager, Kyle Vander Kuyp, has recruited our second apprentice, Jediaha Cam.

Jediaha met with Kyle in July through Schiavello’s supportive partnership with MatchWorks, where he toured our Tullamarine manufacturing facility with an eager attitude and keen interest right all the way through.


Schiavello is excited to announce the newly completed 10,000sqm office for the Department of Environment, Water and Natural Resources (DEWNR) has been awarded the Green Building Council of Australia’s maximum 6 Star Green Star – Interiors v1 certified rating. Managed under our Design & Construct model, the project’s milestone is a first in its category for South Australia and the first in Australia to receive the rating within the first round of assessment.


Prima Tower has been featured as a case study in support of a White Paper on multi-residential buildings by architect and heritage consultant, Anne Warr. Published in the latest residential themed issue of Indesign, the comprehensive case study by Alice Blackwood details how the Schiavello & PDG development has redefined luxury apartment living through innovative design, first-class amenities and quality finishes.
