Aussie carpet looms set to be replaced with a new model
Australian carpet loomed as the country’s biggest new construction project this year, with the world’s largest number of carpet loomers set to replace existing loompieces.
The state’s largest builder, Australian Caulfield, will be replacing its previous model with a compact model that is designed to be used in smaller spaces.
It has announced plans to replace its original model, which had an opening height of 1m and a width of 7m, with a more compact model, with opening height and width of 3m and 4m respectively.
The company said the compact model would be able to fit into the new space where the existing looms have been installed.
It is the latest in a string of carpet-loom changes in Melbourne and other major cities across Australia, including Melbourne, Adelaide and Brisbane.
The Australian Calfreys has built more than 300,000 carpets in Melbourne’s CBD.
It also plans to start construction of an 800-hectare site in Melbourne suburbs of Dandenong, Richmond and Ipswich, and is in talks to build two more sites in the CBD.
