MIller's Point Rotunda
Located on one of Sydney's premier sites, the Rotunda at Observatory Hill offers the public the opportunity to absorbed the breathtaking views of picturesque Sydney Harbour.
The existing Rotunda is of high Heritage significance as one of the earliest timber rotundas within the area, though, due to its location has suffered the extensive effects of weathering.
Bellmont have been engaged to provide expert restoration design services to the structure, requiring the sourcing of identical roof shingles, repair of timber flooring and creation of a waterproof flooring system to ensure protection of the main timber superstructure
BELMORE PARK, HAYMARKET
Not satisfied with tackling one project with historical significance, we recently began work on the Rotunda located at Belmore Park, Haymarket. Built in the same era as that of the Observatory Hill Rotunda, we were approached to consult on the deterioration of the structural timber elements.
The existing failed waterproof membrane—most likely the original since construction— had allowed years of prolonged water penetration, resulting in the widespread development of wet rot.
Bellmont Façade Engineering have undertaken a detailed survey of the structure and have prepared the necessary remedial documentation for its repair—sympathetic to the Heritage Conservation requirements applicable to the structure.
