Customized BEC Office Postie Bike

We’re passionate about design; naturally that includes building design & engineering…and motorcycles.

On any given day there are 3-4 motorbikes parked at the BEC Brisbane Head Office – so we decided to take our passion to the next level and build something of our own: A BEC Postie. 

Over the last few weeks the whole team has been involved in brainstorming and putting together our inspiration board for the project, and more recently we’ve sourced parts and creative advice from the style-wizards at Ellaspede.

We’ll be posting progress and completion photos here if you’d like to stay tuned – otherwise drop in for a coffee & check out the build yourself!

John Tuxworth – President of the AGDF

BE Collective’s Managing Director John Tuxworth has accepted the role of President at the Australian Green Development Forum (AGDF). 

The AGDF seeks to accelerate the adoption of sustainable practices in the Australian building and development industries, through facilitating education and conversation among industry professionals.  As a long-time supporter and board member to the AGDF, John looks forward to leading the organisation push for a greener Australia.

The appointment is the culmination of decades of work on Johns part – who has been pushing for sustainable initiatives within the Australian development industry before and during his time with BE Collective. 

John’s focus on sustainable initiatives led him to become one of the few structural/civil specialists to be accredited as a Green Star Professional, and his work in ESD related projects include Modulo, his flatpack emergency shelter design; the Suan Lum Sustainable Masterplan in Bangkok; and River Community Centre sustainability concepts to name a few.
