Seapal Pallets & Crates

19 March 2012

The Carter Group of Companies operates a number of trading entities within the group.

During 2004- 2005 it became obvious that the group needed to consolidate all of its activities onto it's Kilcoy Site which formerly housed only Kilcoy Timber Company, a then very basic country sawmill.

The complex needed to be re-designed and re-developed to include Seapal Pallets & Crates (Pallet Manufacturing Business) and Trevdot Holdings (Transport Division). Seapal Pallets & Crates and Trevdot Holdings were previously based in Brendale, a northern suburb of Brisbane.

Environmental Building Design (EBD) was engaged to develop and redesign the site to house all of these businesses. Kaarlo Pesu, the principal of EBD, took personal interest in this project and was the driving force and direction behind it.

Scope of works for EBD included initial design and planning of one complete factory and offices and re-design of existing buildings. EBD was also responsible for Development Application and Building Approval and compliance with all State and Local Government requirements.

The project was divided into two stages and commenced in March 2006 with completion in March 2007. This included one development application and two building applications.

We, the directors of the Carter Group of Companies are very pleased with the end product and are surprised at the efficiencies incorporated in our buildings. These include excellent use of natural light and prevailing breezes. We are, in fact, so impressed with Kaarlo and EBD that we have since commissioned him to design our own private residence which has unique requirements due to the nature of the land and surrounding properties.

Kaarlo is passionate about making optimum use of all God-given elements such as sun, wind, light and the surrounding environment on any project.

We would have no hesitation in recommending Kaarlo and his company to any person or organization requiring such skills.

Yours faithfully,

Trevor & Dot Carter

Victory College

September 2011

My wife and I engaged Kaarlo Pesu to draw up house plans for us. Kaarlo was excellent to work with as he has a friendly approachable disposition, providing a relaxed ease of communication.

Kaarlo was willing to listen to what we wanted and to work with us to achieve our vision. Kaarlo managed to accurately put down on paper what we envisaged, and had the intelligent ideas to add to and improve on the design layout. Kaarlo was patient and gracious and continued to work with us until we were totally satisfied. His advice was invaluable in regards to keeping a reasonable budget and his services were value for money. Kaarlo was flexible and willing to meet us on site when needed.

Kaarlo was also diligent in providing designs and modifying any changes asked of him. His unique flair and ideas added to the quality of the design with the end result of a breathtaking design of a dream home that took advantage of views, aspects, airflow and a spacious, comfortable and clever practical design that suited our needs.

As CEO of Victory College I would not hesitate in asking Kaarlo to be involved in future building projects. His innovation and flair for design would be greatly valued for any future building projects. I highly recommended Kaarlo to other potential clients as a unique designer who can interpret the owner’s vision and lay it down on paper to bring it into reality.

Yours sincerely

George Miller
