Domain Park Apartments Facade Restoration




Domain Park Apartments


Permewan Consulting

This $3 million lump sum contract comprised facade repairs to all elevations of an existing 18-level apartment building constructed in the 1960's.

The scope included miscellaneous demolition works prior to repair, repair of spalled concrete surfaces, repair of cracks to concrete, brickwork repairs including retro-fitting of brick ties, re-caulking of expansions joints and replacement of lintels, removal repair and replacement of existing steel and glass balustrading, upgrade of foyers and the addition of fire doors to every level, replacement of the bitumen roof membrane and existing guttering, window repairs, render repairs including replacement and injection, repainting and sundry services upgrades including mechanical, electrical and fire.

Works were carried out from fixed scaffold to the north elevation and swing stages to the east, west and south elevations. The construction sequence was top down to enable the man and materials hoist located on the north elevation to be progressively dismantled.

All apartments remained occupied during the course of works which required significant coordination and detailed planning. A gantry and hoarding was erected at groud level for public protection.

The project was completed in mid-2001.
