About Us

Mitchell Bink Concrete Design is a local Canberra business that is passionate about providing not only beautiful but functional custom concrete products such as benchtops and furniture to Canberra, South Coast, Sydney and the surrounding regions.

We specialise in one-off innovative products that enhance outdoor and indoor environments. With creative skills passed down through three family generations specialising in precast concrete in the Canberra region for over 55 years.

Our business includes a talented team who specialise in Glass Fiber Reinforced Concrete (GFRC) and are passionate about bringing out the true natural beauty of concrete.

We love nothing more than our clients loving our product as much as we do so we feel passionate about educating our clients about the product, the pro’s and con’s of concrete, what to expect from the product, how it can be used throughout a home and making sure concrete is right for them.

We are privileged to have worked with some of Canberra’s leading architects and designers having our work featured in multiple award winning homes and commercial spaces.

At Mitchell Bink Concrete Design, we offer quality products, all of which have a unique style and presentation as well as a freedom to design pieces that suit individual needs.

The Concrete

Mitchell Bink Concrete Design specialises in Glass Fiber Reinforced Concrete (GFRC or GRC) with all products being manufactured from our workshop in Hume, Canberra.

What is GFRC?

In short, GFRC consists of cement, fine aggregate, acrylic co-polymer, water and glass fibers.

Why GFRC?

GFRC has been used for the past 30 years by decorative concrete artisans who have discovered the benefits of GFRC.

It gives much higher flexural and tensile strengths than normal concrete, this enables us to apply it to a wide range of requests.

GFRC is a lightweight, durable material that can be cast into kitchen benchtops, commercial countertops, bathroom vanities, table tops, fireplace surrounds, wall facade panels and more. As our products are a third of the weight of standard concrete no reinforcement is required to your floors or cabinetry.

Have you seen similar concrete products elsewhere wondering if it’s the same thing? Chances are, its not. We frequently get calls from people asking if we are able to ‘fix’ their concrete product they bought from a well known hardware store, furniture store, or something their builder or their polished concrete floor specialist attempted to do.

It takes a long time for anyone to be proficient with GFRC. At Mitchell Bink Concrete Design, since 2010 we have been solely focused on GFRC as a custom concrete product for benchtops and furniture and we have a team equipped with the skill set to produce GFRC at the highest standard.

Residential

Concrete in general, is a beautiful product to use throughout your home. The concrete we produce has a personal touch which can’t be replicated, no two pieces are ever exactly the same. We believe that the aesthetic of concrete is conductive to a positive and warm feeling inside any environment, the beauty of concrete creates a talking point for anyone that enters your home.

All of our products are crafted by hand and tailored to individual client’s requirements. Each piece is unique in its finish.

Indoor and outdoor concrete kitchen benchtops along with bathroom vanities and table tops are a more common request but concrete is also considered a great alternative for wall panel facades, splash backs, fireplace hearths, fire place surrounds and more.

These are only some of the possibilities and we encourage our clients to think outside the box.

  • Concrete kitchen island benchtops

Commercial

Known for its industrial and modern look, concrete finds itself at the top of the ‘must have’ list for a modern commercial fit out.

We focus on reliability, consistent performance and the unrivalled quality of finished work. Our strengths lie in our ability to understand our clients needs as we recognise the importance of maintaining a business brand.

Concrete countertops and bar tops along with concrete table tops are a more common request for commercial projects but concrete is also considered a great alternative for wall and bar panel, stair treads, reception desks and more.

Tables & Furniture

Concrete furniture is increasingly finding its way into our homes, office’s, commercial spaces and outdoor entertaining areas. Ideal for not only the indoors but also outdoor spaces. Concrete is a great alternative with its beauty and character.

Concrete tables are a popular request. For easy, comfortable and stylish dining, we have you covered!

We have extremely talented metal fabricators and woodworkers that we work with closely as we love to incorporate black powder coated steel or timber into almost all of our table designs.

If you have something in mind, there is a good chance we would be able to work in closely with you to provide you with the piece of furniture you envision.

The possibilities are endless.

The concrete we produce at Mitchell Bink Concrete Design is extremely versatile. Not only have we provided our clients with concrete tables but also:

  • Concrete bench seats
