The one minute clip demonstrates the quality workmanship and attention to detail that you can expect with Urban Alfresco. This was a substantial project which included a 270 square metre deck over two levels as well as stairs, balustrading and a verandah. We think the end result says a lot about Dave’s knowledge, experience, skills and overall determination to be Adelaide’s premier designer and builder of amazing outdoor spaces.
