The experienced team at Mykra was initially asked to assess the existing building condition and recommend a scope of works prior to tender, with the aim of improving the building condition as required. Mykra identified various issues including roof leaks, external painting needed for protection of the steel balustrade structure, new flashings required in various locations, waterproofing to the concrete balcony floors, additional concrete expansion joints needed in balcony floors to prevent further cracking, new seals needed to the air conditioning roof penetrations and more. Next, Mykra showed each of the critical trades through the existing building to ensure everyone was able to quote accurately and advise on the most cost-efficient and effective approach to each of the building issues.
During the construction phase, Mykra was able to complete all the works requested within a tight time-frame, navigated winter weather delays affecting external works, and completed all noisy works prior to the exams period for the Uni accommodation tenants. The project team included Guy Wightman (Project Manager), Beau Alisauskas (Project Supervisor), and Chris Burfield (Contract Administrator). The inaccessible nature of the balconies work required extensive scaffolding, and the expertise of the experienced scaffolding team, to ensure the safety of building occupants and the safety of pedestrians on the nearby footpath. All maintenance works were completed to a high standard, leaving the building looking great and ready for many more years of use.
The client was thrilled with the result. They appreciated the regular communication, regular program updates as per their request, and the Mykra’s professional standard of work. Mykra have since been invited to provide additional maintenance work to other parts of the building in the coming months.
