Project Description

Remedial Repairs Units Redfern

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.

Solutions to access challenges

Working in a live environment requires planning and experience, and Dapcor has a focus on safety in this area.

Access to this project was challenging as waterproofing and retiling of the internal common walkways was directly in front of unit entry doors.

We scheduled the works in sections so that it would minimise the impact and travel adjustments of tenants.

The design of the building made painting the external facades an interesting challenge, too. A number of balconies are either stepped into the building and others are stepping out with blade walls adjoining each column of balconies.

A fresh look with an added bonus

The original scope of work was increased, adding a completel pool refurbishment to the scope. Now residents can enjoy their rejuvenated pool, bathrooms and corridors, along with a bright new facade that stands out on Regent Street.

The client wanted the building to be more attractive to prospective tenants and to be more visible within Redfern. We delivered on these requests, all while causing minimal disruption to the lives of tenants.
