REALITY TV fans will need to keep an eye on the next season of The Block, with a Ballarat business making an appearance.
Signature Construction and Aluminium Windows will make its TV debut later this year for the work it did on a building in High Street, Prahran, which will be the focus of the popular program.
Company director Brad Taylor said his workers had to remove the existing windows, replace the whole shop front and install bi-fold pivot doors on the building.
“We were not too sure at the start if we would be on the TV itself, but as we got into the work a bit more we realised we would be on it quite a bit,” he said.
“It was pretty interesting having the cameras in your face and people running around yelling and screaming.”
Mr Taylor said he thought Ballarat residents might be surprised by the amount of work being done by Ballarat companies in Melbourne and elsewhere, especially in trade fields.
“We haven’t done that much work in Ballarat. We do a lot of work in Geelong, Melbourne, Mildura and to get the exposure from this job is good for us,” he said.
