    Hi,
    Recently, our side fence collapsed. So I'm looking for someone who can construct solid concrete base (kind of retaining wall) and a colorbondfence on top of it.

    It is about 36M long fence but the concrete base is required for about 12 meters as we have a retaining wall for the rest.
    I need the following to be done.
    1. Demolish the remaining fence and remove all concrete.
    2. Construct solid concrete footing for about 12 meters. Rest of 24m has retaining wall (see the pic).
    3. Construct 1.8 m high colorbond fence.

    Anyone here, keen to take on this job?
    oh.. location is: Homebush, NSW.

    Not sure about the actual colorbond fence part. But I know a decent demolition and concrete guy who could remove the fallen fence blocks and put down a new footing for the colorbond fence. Then you'd have to organise a fencing guy to do the actual fence.

    I'm finding it difficult to find anyone who can do both.
    Can you please send me your guy's details?

    What's the concrete base for? Sorry i don't follow. was the old fence/wall the besa blocks that have fallen over in the photo?

    By the looks you should be able to get a brickie to re-lay the old bricks to add a course or two then just drop the new fence posts in the blocks then concrete in place.

    To act as a retaining wall as levels are not even.

    Interesting events...
    The cheapest quote we got to just demolish remaining fence and remove all bricks was about 3.5K! We put an ad on local paper saying 'Free Bricks'. 25 meters x 1.8 meters of concrete is gone! We saved 3.5K!
