In December 2018, a severe hailstorm swept across NSW which resulted in extensive damage to the roof of the heritage-listed Oaks Goldsbrough.
Paynter Dixon was engaged in 2020 to carry out roof repair and replacement works that involved the design and construction of a 100m long upgrade of existing roof sheeting on the atrium roof which was damaged in a hailstorm.
Significant scaffolding and waterproofing were also required to remove the roof and protect the internal areas positioned over 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 8m bondor insulated roofing sheets.
The project involved numerous latent conditions as the steel condition was revealed which was managed equitably.
The project also involved installation of solar panels which is the single largest residential solar panel installation in the southern hemisphere.
