Last Friday (aka GrantBuild photography day) we were pleased to have one of Sydney’s leading real estate photographers Tim Mooney come to Orange and visit some of our completed sites and take photographs for us… our first GrantBuild photography day!

We waited a long time for a GrantBuild photography day! Whilst we think we are pretty good at taking our own snaps around a worksite, there’s nothing like a seasoned professional to get a result.

We started early in -2 degrees cold and went well into the day as a beautiful Orange day shone on our building projects.

Take a look at our testimonials page and all the new images scattered throughout our developing website.

Our brief to Tim Mooney was to grab as many images as possible that showcase the overall jobs as well as the detail. We think he did a pretty good job and Orange turned on one of its best for the occasion.

Its always good to vist our jobs and see them being lived in. Exactly how our clients (friends) thought they might in their building planning stages.

Autumn colours Orange NSW GrantBuild

The colours are so rich at this time of the year. The skies so blue.

What a great time of the year to consider colour.

Colour for interiors.

Colour for exteriors.

At Grantbuild we work closely with clients to ensure they consider every time of the year when it comes to colour choice.

Autumn Orange NSW is a great time to see almost the full spectrum of colours.

Did you know this about Autumn Colours:

A green leaf is green because of the presence of a pigment known as chlorophyll, which is inside an organelle called a chloroplast. When they are abundant in the leaf’s cells, as they are during the growing season, the chlorophylls’ green colour dominates and masks out the colours of any other pigments that may be present in the leaf. Thus the leaves of summer are characteristically green.

Chlorophyll has a vital function: that of capturing solar rays and utilising the resulting energy in the manufacture of the plant’s food—simple sugars which are produced from water and carbon dioxide. These sugars are the basis of the plant’s nourishment—the sole source of the carbohydrates needed for growth and development. In their food-manufacturing process, the chlorophylls themselves break down and thus are being continually “used up”. During the growing season, however, the plant replenishes the chlorophyll so that the supply remains high and the leaves stay green.
