Witches Chase Cheese Company

When the owners of Witches Chase Cheese out grew their previous cheese manufacturing and retail site Gold Coast Timbers and Trusses was approached to visit the new site and make design suggestions for a new manufacturing facility, retail outlet, restaurant and brewery. An essential brief requirement was to create a building that was sympathetic to the surrounds yet would create a positive lasting impression on visitors and importantly suited the intended use. The owners instructed a high timber content was paramount in the design and requested the use of Australian hardwoods. A conceptual sketch was done on site featuring Forest Reds laminated beam bolted trusses and columns with Spotted Gum chamfer board cladding the design lent itself to future additions and change of application should the need arise. A Building designer, Engineer and builder were appointed and the clients vision soon became a reality and the completed facility is now an iconic building on the Gold Coast hinterland landscape.
