Despite the difficulties and loss in productivity that Australia’s southern states have experienced since the onset of Covid-19, the demand for building materials and new projects in Queensland has remained strong, a reality Queensland’s Harvey Norman Commercial division has witnessed.
With record high levels of interstate migration and historically low interest rates fuelling a booming development and construction industry, Queensland shows no sign of slowing down yet.
One development and construction group benefitting from this trend is the award-winning Cru Collective. Located on the Gold Coast’s Palm Beach, Cru’s latest development Siarn, designed by architects BDA, sold out nine months ahead of completion.
Featuring stunning coastal views, oversized balconies and the latest in high end finishes and appliances, Siarn offers the residents of its 16 apartments a beachfront lifestyle paired with exclusive amenities including a oceanfront pool, sundeck, infra-red sauna and alfresco dining areas.
Recognising the need to cater to the strong owner-occupier market, Cru collaborated with Queensland’s Harvey Norman Commercial Division to select a range of appliances, finishes and fittings that would allow the project to shine in a competitive market.
Among the fittings selected for Siarn included bespoke rose gold bathroom accessories from the Australian supplier Brodware; Italian-inspired basins and bathware from Parisi; quality sinks from Swiss brand Franke and stunning Zip Hydrotaps in brushed rose gold.
Following a personalised consultation and private selection appointments at Harvey Norman Commercial’s state of the art selection centre on the Gold Coast, Cru also included a range of high-end Gaggenau appliances for Siarn’s kitchen and butler’s pantries, a German brand recommended for its cutting-edge design, innovation and quality. Integrated refrigeration from Fisher & Paykel and German Miele laundry appliances were also selected for the luxury residences.
A Cru spokesperson said Harvey Norman Commercial’s diverse range of products on offer and ability to source customised and unique items at the best price has always made them the first port of call.
Cru found the team's strong knowledge of products, design trends and industry insight was invaluable to a project’s success.
“We love the team at Harvey Norman Commercial and are grateful for all the support provided during the build,” they said.
Over the past 30 years, Harvey Norman Commercial has been the supplier of choice for architects, developers, builders and plumbers—a trend that Queensland proprietor Steve Cavalier sees only continuing into the future with the announcement of the 2032 Brisbane Olympic Games.
Since opening their doors in Queensland in 1989, the commercial division has grown and evolved to support the needs of their clients.
With now more than 150 employees, four large format warehouse facilities and three dedicated Selection Centres in Queensland, Harvey Norman Commercial offers its clients a one-stop-shop for products and services specifically tailored to the construction and design industry, crediting their long-standing supplier relationships, solid after-sales support and committed team as the key to their success.
