This large multi-storey unit complex needed a full list of remedial works, from concrete repairs and waterproofing to facade coating and complete pool upgrade. All of it needed to be done while tenants continued to use common spaces.
Giving new life to the building
The main structural elements of the building are suspended concrete floor slabs supported on reinforced concrete lift shafts and a framework of reinforced concrete columns, masonry walls and steelwork.
The roof structure comprises a combination of a reinforced concrete slab (Roof Garden) and low pitched metal deck roof areas.
The facades are of rendered masonry walls, aluminium frames windows and sliding doors along with horizontal aluminium louvres shutters.
Each sole-occupancy unit features a balcony and the internal walls of the units inspected are lined with plasterboard sheeting and the ceilings are set to the underside of the concrete slab.
The building needed render and concrete repairs, facade coating, bathroom and ensuite waterproofing and balcony repairs (both isolated repairs and full refurbishments), cavity flashing, roof and awning repairs, internal plasterboard and cornice crack repair, and planter box and external common area waterproofing.
