Supa Dupa Industries is a professional construction studio started by 3 friends who share a common interest in recycling, repairing, art, integrity and affordability in construction.
The horrible waste in retail fit-outs as part of the refurbishment merry-go-round specifically led to the establishment of Supa Dupa Industries.
We provide interior construction, fabrication, architectural joinery and bespoke furniture manufacturing services to like-minded clients; architects, interior designers, retailers and anyone who realise it makes commercial sense to consider a different approach.
We can practically make anything.
