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 construction, art fabrication & instal, design development, prototyping, architectural joinery and bespoke furniture manufacturing services to like-minded people who realise it makes commercial sense to consider a different approach.

We can make almost anything.

We bring a practical knowledge of materials and fabrication techniques to projects and welcome clients to work alongside us in the workshop to problem solve on the job.

Joel Adams: sculptor (Uni of Ballarat & VCA), cabinet maker & fabricator
