- Wait months for the machine to be fixed - no additional cost but possible 2 months delay
- Find another brick - not possible, only 2 brick companies in WA and neither had what we needed
- Use a stone cladding - No additional delay but approx $5,000 cost
- Render wall and use laser cut panels on curve as feature - No additional delay but extra costs
So after much deliberating we decided on option 4 - we will be rendering the curved wall and the upstairs wall, we will be rendering both - the upstairs in green and the curve in sea mist and we will be using the screens after handover.
I'm pretty happy with the decision - It was a big one to make because in my head, I wanted the bricks but .... the saying, you roll with the punches really does apply!
