Australian Catholic University

January 2017


Completed in partnership with Ballarat Commericial builder, H Troon.

Every single brick was laid to a numbered chart. The Australian Catholic University crest was made with individually hand cut bricks protruding from the face brickwork.

There was very minimal groundwork with 90% of the brickwork laid on steel lintels which added to the complexity.

This project has since been nominated for various industry awards.

Instead of signage being imposed on the building, using brick created the opportunity to integrate the university’s crest into the facade. Ray and his team executed our designs to perfection.

August 2016


This project, managed by Q Constructions, included extensive use of brick shapes to tie in with the existing heritage overlay of the precinct.

There was an existing front boundary fence which the new fence had to blend in with. The Newmac team carefully followed the Architects structural designs and plans using the Pressed Red solids.

Attention to detail on this project was imperative due to the intricate nature of using brick shapes.

BUPA Aged Care

February 2016

The BUPA Aged Care facility was designed and constructed by Croft Developments. The “state of the art” facility comprised a total of 144 beds arranged over a single level construction.

Approximately 160,000 bricks were laid, with constant communication between Croft & Newmac to ensure all deadlines were met. The result outstanding.

Meeting the timeframe's provided by Croft Developments were critical. We achieved these targets whilst maintaining Newmac's stringent quality control over 160,000 bricks.
