Projects Index: Buildings
in the form of a Timeline

Project Name: I have mostly used the name given to the project by RCMPC. Details of the original owner and, where known, subsequent changes, appear in the 'Notes' on each project. If a project seems significant in my opinion in size or nature, its name is shown bold. City/Town: Suburbs of Melbourne and Adelaide are indicated by placing the city name in brackets after the suburb name. All country towns mentioned are in the State of Victoria. Remarks: Nomenclature of building floors (Ground then First, etc) follows Australian practice. Date: Generally quoted as month/year. The first figure is generally the date at which the project first came to RCMPC's attention. The second is generally the date at which RCMPC tendered its final account, or someone reported "all major work finished". Price: Provided as a guide to the size of the project. Sometimes based on the tender price, sometimes on the final account. Figures often varied somewhat due to extras, disputed claims, or retention of moneys.

More building projects: The index below points to a comprehensive selection of RCMPC's building projects including all considered significant, and a representative selection of minor ones. More may be found by scrolling through the 'Building Pages' starting with Building Page 1.

Caution. The information on this page concerning buildings comes mainly from a speedy 'first pass' through the RCMPC records and from dipping into the Monash Papers at NLA looking for information on other themes. It is presented to indicate the nature and scope of JM's work in building construction. Details should be used with caution.
