Complex re-roofing of a heritage-listed building saw Paynter Dixon implement a multi-step repair system and navigate the constraints of an exposed site. Agile and innovative, our team undertook the single largest residential solar panel installation in the southern hemisphere.
In December 2018, a severe hailstorm swept across NSW which resulted in extensive damage to the roof of the heritage-listed Oaks Goldsbrough.
Our remedial team was engaged to carry out roof repairs and replacement works. with a focus on the damaged atrium roof. This led to the design and construction of upgraded roof sheeting extending 100 metres.
Removing the roof called for significant scaffolding and waterproofing to preserve pristine internal areas positioned within an atrium 15 floors high. A progressive system was established to remove the existing roof, conduct repairs and modifications to the structural steel, prepare and paint in a protective coating system, crane lift and install 8 metre bondor insulated roofing sheets.
The discovery of steel corrosion saw our team closely partner with consulting engineers to determine initiative solutions for repairing, strengthening and extending the maintenance life of impacted materials.
The project also harnessed the potential for sustainability through the installation of solar panels, representing the single largest residential solar panel installation in the southern hemisphere.
