A complex project design which included heritage restoration, specialist slate roof repair and a busy operational health site.
The heritage-listed Kenilworth House at St Luke’s Care in the Sydney suburb of Potts Point is a perfect example of a Victorian building, including a 35-degree pitched slate roof.
However, over time, the roof began leaking and urgently needed repair.
The project included all the complexity of a heritage restoration, including asbestos removal.
Paynter Dixon was engaged to design and construct repairs.
Fortunately, Paynter Dixon has experience in the speciality job of slate roof repair – contracting an expert team to undertake the tile replacement.
The slate shingles contained asbestos. The project team drafted and implemented a safe work removal plan for the asbestos.
Kenilworth House is located on a busy site – creating access and delivery issues.
The project team completed the project with minimal disruption.
