MP Roofing Services Pty Ltd, Mortdale
40 square metres of the LYSAGHT MINI ORB®
Experienced roofing professional, Michael Pagliuca, is serious about quality. So when it came to renovating his own offices, he turned to BlueScope Lysaght's premier range of walling and roofing solutions.
After operating as a sole trader for a few years, Michael decided to expand his company, MP Roofing Services Pty Ltd in 1994. In 1998 Michael & Jerry his brother joined forces.
The Sydney based business specializes in metal roofing, rainwater systems and inspection reports for the commercial, industrial, and residential sectors. The small but expert firm tackles anything from roofing repairs and maintenance, to removal and replacement, to new contract work.
"Our philosophy here is really based on doing the job right the first time," says Michael. "And that's what I instill in my staff. No short cuts! Especially when it comes to roofing. A significant amount of our work is rectification work, difficult roof issues & situations. Unfortunately we meet a lot of unhappy people who have made the wrong choice."
"We will not sacrifice quality in order to win a job," he adds. "We may not be the cheapest there is, but our standard of work is second to none. We measure our success by the satisfaction and loyalty of our clients. Our business is based on referrals so it is highly important for us to give our customers peace of mind."
Put simply, Michael Pagliuca is a perfectionist. And this attitude is not only reflected in MP Roofing's work, but also in its new offices. MP Roofing's painstaking and committed approach to business has proved successful and, after starting out with a staff of three, MP Roofing has now grown to employ ten people. This steady expansion led to Michael's decision to build and fitout a completely new office space in MP Roofing's Mortdale premises.
"Initially we started in a small office out in the back of our workshop," explains Michael. "It was just too small and cramped for us to be able to operate efficiently & comfortably. So we made the decision to renovate. A major factor for me was also the kind of image that I want the business to portray. We are a professional, skilled, efficient operation, and it's important that our premises reflect that. First impressions are extremely important in any business."
Built from scratch, MP Roofing's new office is a far cry from the cramped conditions in which Michael and his staff were previously housed. Now located on the second floor at the front of the premises, the modern, spacious new office space features charcoal floor tiles, beech office furniture, and an abundance of natural light. Most striking, though, are the interior walls, which are clad in LYSAGHT MINI ORB®, in a mixture of Deep Ocean® and Dune® COLORBOND® steel.
Increasingly popular in architect designed applications, LYSAGHT MINI ORB® provides a sophisticated, contemporary finish on exterior or interior walls. MP Roofing has installed the LYSAGHT MINI ORB® horizontally, which allows the profile's mini corrugations to catch the available light and reflect a striated pattern of light and shadow. The eye catching appearance of the walls, when coupled with the simple, modern furniture and spacious layout, make for an attractive and comfortable working environment.
"We used about 40 square metres of the LYSAGHT MINI ORB® on the walls," says Michael. "We selected this unusual profile because we wanted the space to stand out a little bit more than the average roofing office. After all, we spend a lot of our time here, we work about 12 hours a day on average. So it was important that we came up with a solution that was aesthetically pleasing, as well as comfortable."
As a supplier that is committed to customer satisfaction, MP Roofing expects the same level of service and professionalism from its suppliers. And that's something it's found with BlueScope Lysaght. "We use LYSAGHT® products on a lot of our jobs, particularly, LYSAGHT KLIP-LOK 406® and LYSAGHT LONGLINE 305®, which are often specified by the architect. BlueScope Lysaght is a great company to deal with."
