Capefield Pty Ltd
l have been associated with Patrick Buckley and family for over 30 years during my time in the Building & Construction Industry.
We have worked on a range of projects from the early days (1980s). These have included Pre-Cast Concrete Construction on buildings such as McDonnell & East, Australia Fair, Southport, to my latest project, a three level deep basement with six storeys of office space in Surfers Paradise. Pat’s company ASP Piling has supplied Piling, Anchoring & Dewatering Services and has always worked with us to achieve the best result for the projects.
Over the years many projects have been completed during our association in a reliable and professional manner. Some of the projects include Theme Park works such as a Water Slide for Warner Brothers at Wet ‘n’ Wild, where the team completed foundation piling, to a multi-storey high rise building in Surfers Paradise during my association with the Raptis Group.
I would recommend Pat and Team at ASP to any builder for in-ground shoring and dewatering solutions.

As a company, we have found ASP to be a strong performer, with a ‘can do attitude’. They have provided us with numerous construction solutions over the years, as well as maintaining both time and budget considerations.
ASP has evolved into a highly professional organisation, which Sunland Construction will continue to utilise on future projects and would have no hesitation in recommending them to other clients.
We have just recently awarded ASP our next project in Brisbane, which is due for commencement.
Should you require any further information about the performance of ASP please contact the undersigned.
ASP successfully completed an eight metre deep contiguous pier retaining wall on our project for the fill extent of one site boundary within 80mm of an occupied existing double storey building. The unique properties of their rig enabled us to complete the task in a safe and timely manner. This task was thought to be unachievable by all of Sydney’s major piling contractors due to the proximity of the well-aged neighbouring building but thankfully they were proven wrong.
Our main concern in carrying out this difficult task was safety and ASP not only provided us with the relevant certification but also carried out their works in a professional and cooperative manner.
It was a pleasure to work with John and his crew and I would highly recommend their services to any prospective client. I know Abigroup will be considering ASP as a preferred contractor for future work not only based on this project’s performance but also their simultaneous performance on our Sheraton Hotel project at Port Macquarie where they are currently carrying our sheet piling works in a sand and coffee rock foundation material.
I would be happy to elaborate on my recommendation to any prospective client and I wish their company every future success in our competitive industry.

To Whom It May Concern:
ASP provided a prompt and efficient response to an urgent design change requiring installation of sheet piling along an easement. The work carried out without fuss under difficult circumstances and therefore I am pleased to recommend ASP to carry out sheet piling work.
ASP was awarded the subcontract to supply and install the sheet piling on the Wave project in Broadbeach for Multiplex Constructions.
The Wave is a 35 Level apartment block with 3 level basements.
Patrick Buckley and his team carried out the sheet piling works in a most professional manner and worked co-operatively with Mutiplex’s staff and consultants to resolve and design problems. We would have no hesitation in using ASP on any future projects.
Edman Constructions recently contracted ASP to design and construct a perimeter retention system to support site bulk excavation ranging from 3m to 6m to three sides of our current high rise site in Forster.
The work performed was necessary to allow for construction of foundations and two basement car park levels. The installation of approximately 80m of sheet piling and associated ground anchors into a sandy site was undertaken over a two week period and was carried out effectively and promptly. The site team lead by a competent supervisor carried out the work in a professional manner, and worked in well in conjunction with other site activities necessary at the time.
We have no hesitation in recommending ASP to any potential clients in need of their expertise in this field, and will certainly converse with them on any future project we may undertake of which the services they provide are required. Should you require more information in regards to this matter do not hesitate to call me to discuss
As a company intrinsically involved with the design, construction and ultimate appearance of Chevron Renaissance, I have pleasure enclosing a copy of the current issue of “Renaissance Report” newsletter, and take this opportunity to thank you for your input and involvement in this landmark project.
