Simon and his team at ZC Technical advised and delivered a most outstanding roof cladding system to the roof at Elements of Byron Resort in Byron Bay. The brief from our client was to build a building ‘shaped like a sand dune’. This was highly technical, achieved with remarkable effect.
Each sheet was individually rolled and shaped so that all seams pointed to two control points on either side of the pool.

This roof involved the application of world first technologies and the team from ZC Technical finished it on program and to budget.

Cockram Constructions engaged ZC Technical to undertake the façade works at St Stephens Hospital when the original design details and budget could not be met with the nominated system. ZC Technical took a positive and proactive approach helping us identify the issues surrounding the original design and budget, and tailored a new system to meet our criteria while also achieving a reduced program. The general approach from ZC Technical was professional and helpful throughout all phases of design, fabrication and installation. The end result being a high class finish which was appreciated by both our client and architect. I would happily use ZC Technical on future projects.

The Saint John Paul II Building is a state-of-the-art flexible learning, research and public engagement facility amongst a campus of rich heritage and tradition. The contemporary building on the campus’ Community Court reflects its historic setting in its glass façade. This unique exterior necessitated a versatile, uniform and long-spanning cladding solution to frame the reflection.  Through ZC Technical’s customised, project-specific cladding solution this was successfully achieved.

Our architect specified Standing Seam Cladding for our major renovation to a Queensland workers cottage in Highgate Hill. With little knowledge of this product, we contacted a number of suppliers with Simon from ZC Technical being one.

One thing that stood out from other suppliers/installers, was Simon was prepared to come to site and explain what options we had. This made us very comfortable in dealing and awarding the job to ZC Technical.

Once we gave ZC Technical the job, Simon and his supervisor Ryan were in contact regularly to see how we were going, and when they would be required to start. I found them excellent and helpful in coordinating with other trades and if they said they were going to be there on a certain date, they were there. The quality of their work is excellent and we would have no hesitations in recommending Simon and his crew.

We engaged Simon and ZC Technical after a neighbour recommended them. Simon worked with us throughout the job and was able to offer us some unique cladding options, which meant we could take a bit more of a risk with our design choices.

Despite the precision and small margins for error in engineering the cladding, the installation was on time, hassle-free and one of the easiest parts of our build to organise.

A few years on and it looks the same as it did on the day of installation and it’s maintenance free!

We contracted ZC Technical for specialised metal works on two projects recently including zinc cladding to Brisbane Boys Grammar and a high-end residential project in Northern NSW.

On both occasions working with ZC Technical has not only been a pleasure but a hassle free experience . Their quality and product knowledge is of an extremely high level which is suited to my project types and is essential to my business. What really stands out is that all the promises made, on detail, quality and progress on site were kept in full. Both Simon and Ryan come through with what they say they will.

We hope to continue working with ZC Technical in the future

I have used Simon Johansen and his team at ZC Technical for several jobs and found there work to be of outstanding quality. After the hail storm back in November 2014, we engaged them to carry out several jobs in the Brisbane CBD. Their staff were presented very well, always co-operative and worked with us on some difficult sites where the public was involved. I would recommend them on any project that needs their services.

ZC Technical has recently completed two very large and very high profile residences in Byron Bay for us. One was a 800m2 zinc roof in the hinterlands off Byron in May/June 2011 and the other a 650m2 copper roofing and cladding project in Byron Bay.

ZC Technical operated in both situations in a professional manner and the tradesmanship was exceptional. They meet all timeframe requirements allowing the project to remain on schedule. They also have an excellent knowledge in materials and profiles to accommodate any situation in the building industry.

Heanes Built has a reputation in the industry for various high levels of workmanship and this is due to the quality tradesmen we employ such as ZC Technical.

We would not hesitate to use ZC Technical for any of our future projects.

I contracted ZC Technical to do the roof installation on a very high profile residential project at Hedges Avenue, Mermaid Beach, Gold Coast on July/August 2011. Materials were Copper and Aluminium.
Works were completed in accordance with the Architect’s specifications and ZC provided enough manpower on site to ensure the project was completed within the time frame allowed, all workman were highly skilled and showed a good level of maturity throughout the project.

During construction, ZC was always available for meetings with myself and the Architect.

The service and documentation after project completion has been very good and consistent.

The roof has been without leaks in the recent heavy storms and the floods of January /February 2013.

I would have no hesitation in engaging ZC Technical for any of my future projects.

We have recently (September/October 2012) contracted zc technical to re roof our excisting chapel roof on our golf course at the RACV Royal Pines Resort on the Gold Coast.

A new roof system was needed. Together with the architect we asked Simon from zc technical to come up with a solution to ensure a proper long term solution to a very complex roof shape.

We took on board Simon’s advise and contracted ZC to do the works after having had the job out to tender, as their price was reasonable and we felt very comfortable with ZC.

The project has come up great and everything done has been done exactly as promised by ZC and no unforseen extra charges has been made.

It is worth mentioning that in the recent severe water downpour on the Gold Coast there has been no leaks from the roof.

ZC Technical have supplied and installed approximately 420 square meters of zinc cladding to a section of the podium facade on The Oracle Project in Broadbeach. We have found their workmanship to be of a high standard and have found them easy to deal with on site. The supervisors on site were very communicative and worked through design issues effectively. I would recommend them for consideration on other projects. I am contactable on 0411 834 240 should you wish to discuss.

Simon, I am writing to congratulate you and your team for your external cladding work recently completed on the Integrated Learning Centre at Brisbane Boys Grammar School. The zinc cladding system incorporated in the project has received many praises from Architects, school staff and the public alike.

Your willingness to assist the Principal Contractor and the Architect with a variety of options and details to achieve the required outcome for project is one added benefit of your company’s work that you cannot put a price on.

The overall completion of the project by Koen and his co-workers was first class. The team approached every aspect of the project with enthusiasm, ownership and confidence. Koen was keen to continue working well after other trades had left for the day to ensure he maintained his programmed works, and went out of his way to coordinate other trades as required, something that is sadly lacking in a lot of tradesman these days.

The in depth knowledge of the zinc cladding system and the specialised techniques used were very evident in the day to day operations of your staff. Any queries we had were quickly and professionally handled and on many occasions the team from ZC came through with the goods. As a whole your team was very much a no hassle contractor

I have no hesitation in recommending your company for any future work in the external cladding or specialised metal finishes area. I look forward to working with you and your team in the future.

We contracted ZC Technical to do all the Copper façade work to the recently completed Wesley House re-development on Ann Street in Brisbane City. The contract involved the supply and installation of the Copper cladding and roof sheeting as well as 200mm deep sub-framing to the structure.

Matrix was presented with a “challenging task” on this project as the plans and details were not coordinated and the architect had very specific needs in regards to design intent. ZC was able to provide good feedback on design and fabrication to assist the architect and Matrix achieve the best possible outcome. Simon from ZC represented an excellent knowledge of the product and its application. Simon was also very clear on the performance of the product in various applications which added great value to the team and the overall trade coordination.

In regards to the performance of ZC Technical on programme it was clear that they worked all necessary hours to ensure the project was completed with the time frames agreed. ZC was one of the outstanding performers on programme and were consistently on site working harder and longer hours than any other trade.

For architectural commercial façade and roof work in specialized metals, ZC Technical is our preferred contractor.

For any queries in relation to this testimonial please contact the undersigned.

Recently zc technical completed supply & installation works on one of our projects (No 16 on our web site) the installation workmanship is superb and a real credit to the skills of the individuals responsible for the installation. Zc travelled from one side of Australia to the other for this project and managed the process professionally and within the project time frames. Exotic products like zinc open a new world of design opportunities and a life cycle of product that will meet the most demanding locations. I can highly recommend the team from zc technical and the materials they work with.

ZC Technical was engaged to undertake the supply and installation of Titanium Zinc roofing and wall cladding for a high end residence recently completed at Sunshine Beach. I liaised with ZC Technical during the documentation phase and their knowledge and enthusiasm for their product coupled with their willingness to work through the detailing with us was praise worthy. The installation was professional and timely and the end result truly beautiful. I would have no hesitation in recommending ZC Technical for difficult or high end sheet metal applications.

We contracted ZC technical to do the Zinc cladding and roofing on a very complex Gold Coast Beachfront residence.

The project was in the very high end scale in terms of cost, aesthetics and difficulty.

Contracting ZC Technical turned out to be a very good idea. Their ability to provide what we and our client wanted in terms of installation quality and preconstruction documentation and advise was outstanding. We saw it as a great partnership in bringing in the project home together, on time, on budget and on quality.

Any Zinc or copper project in the future, ZC Technical will definitely be our preferred contractor.

I first met Simon 3 years ago when I asked him to price a very intricate house at Noosa Heads. The job involved a complicated roof and some very prominent wall cladding.I also obtained a price from Simon’s competitors. When the prices came in Simon was about 2% dearer than the other quotes.

I decided to go with Simon even though he was dearer as I was extremely impressed with not only his knowledge of the product but his ability to work with the architect. The right decision as it turned out. Simon and his team have a level of craftsmanship rarely seen.

I have used other installers in the past and have never come across anyone with the skills that Simon has. Learning the trade in Europe and Scandinavia I feel has placed him in a different league to his peers. I could not recommend him and his crew more highly.

I first met Simon when I was looking for someone to clad a structure in copper.

At the time the project was in its concept phase and Simon’s knowledge of the material and construction detailing was invaluable in helping us deliver our concept for a given budget. Simon and his team were always accommodating and professional to deal with.

If I had the opportunity I would clad everything in copper or zinc and have ZC Technical do it.

QUT Shades structures precinct, Kelvin Grove Campus:The opportunity to use zinc arose on a small insertion within a complex heritage precinct where contemporary and colonial structures co-exist. Zinc offered a surface that could speak with the existing palette of materials whilst offering its own beautiful characteristics. The design team consulted with Simon from ZC Technical during early stages of the project establishing preliminary details and costings that proved invaluable in seeking Client support.Simon’s willingness to discuss details and local capabilities during the early design stages allowed a smooth construction phase delivering an excellent outcome. The material and design outcome speak for themselves with zinc playing a significant role in the overall success of the project.

We were very pleased to work with ZC Technical’s Cladding System on a large ocean front residential project on the Gold Coast. ZC Technical’s ability to help us create the exact details we wanted was very important to us to deliver what we wanted to our client.

As well as difficult and very specific details around all fascias and soffits, we were able to create gates and garage doors in zinc. ZC Technical made this possible with aesthetics and quality at the very highest level of satisfaction to us and our client.

We sincerely hope to work with ZC Technical again.

ZC Technical completed the Zinc Cladding to our commercial project in Perth WA. ZC were by far the most professional contractor on this commercial site and were a pleasure to deal with. Led by Simon from QLD, it was reassuring to know regardless of the geography the Simon was available for any meeting requested by us in WA. The staff were professional and a pleasure to deal with, often being the first to arrive to site and the last to leave.

Thanks Simon for your help and excellent service provided in completing all works on time and in great fashion.
