Martin dice– Owner /director – with over 23 years experience in textile fabrication/installation and construction. Martin is polite, tidy, and very approachable with a wealth of knowledge regarding our industry and the many products used within. The quality of his work speaks for itself (take a look at the gallery) combined with a squeaky clean QBCC license you couldn’t ask for a better project manager. All of our installations/textile fabrication projects and staff training are closely monitored by martin to ensure our level of quality control is maintained

Mark west– Owner /director -with 18 years experience in textile fabrication/ installation and construction. Mark is honest (sometimes a little too honest), realistic and easily approachable with a wealth of knowledge regarding our industry and the many products used within. Mark handles the design, quotations, 2D & 3D drafting and general administration. We at elemental shade structures believe it is important to send a TRADESMAN not a salesman to design our structures, Salesmen tend to focus more on the aesthetics of a shade but less on the functionality and most importantly the structural integrity of a proposed design. Don’t get the wrong idea we want your shade to look fantastic just not at the expense of its function or structural integrity.


Here at elemental shades we understand that although our quote and design drawings are quite detailed it can be hard to visualize the completed project from a 2d drawing, Therefore we offer a in-house 3D cad models service for presentations or just piece of mind. (Fees apply for these services). Ask mark for more information
