Project Description

  • State Winner: 2014 Industrial Shed to $5 Million – (Master Builders)
  • Sunshine Coast Winner: 2014 Industrial Shed to $5 Million – (Master Builders)


We constructed a purpose built showroom that showcases and simplifies the quality that is Harley Davidson. This also involved demolishing the existing building on the site, filling and raising the site to street level and construction of a 1003m2 tilt slab showroom and car parking.


The site fell away from the road which meant that had we built it at ground level passing traffic wouldn’t have seen it. To solve this problem, we lifted the site up two metres using fill and massive 1500m2 retaining walls, and elaborate storm water systems. This gave the site a massive amount of street exposure from Maroochydore Road.


The client had to finalise and get out of their old tenancy by a certain date. They also had the release of a new Harley model on a certain date and they wanted to launch it from the new premises. We finished the project on time and on budget.

We received a lot of positive feedback and the customers comment that they love the feel of the building. It took a lot of work to get the building to where it is and Shadforth Lythgo were able to meet some very strict time constraints placed on us.

With a building the size and scale of this there were a number of minor setbacks. Shadforth Lythgo helped to overcome these setbacks and ensure we were opened within the desired time frame.

Shadforth Lythgo handle the entire process from initial feasibilities through to moving you or your tenant into the building. They can deal with council on issues at the front end and real estate agents at the back end, taking the worry and stress out of the building process for you.

I would definitely recommend Shadforth Lythgo, we were very happy with the outcome and are extremely proud of the building.
