January 2020: Pre-Construction
St Sophia Greek Orthodox Church sits on the prominent Paddington corner of South Dowling and Napier Streets. The Heritage Building, over a century old, is beginning to show it's age. BellMont are in the early stages of a facade restoration where the issues of concrete spalling, render delamination and extensive corrosion will eventually be rectified. This January 2020 update displays some of these issues as the building is being prepared and cleaned for construction.
Early February 2020: Update 2
We return to Heritage Building St Sophia Greek Orthodox Church in Paddington to check out the progress that's been made on the facade restoration. Already we see big changes. Some surfaces have been stripped back, repaired, cleaned and the painting process has begun. Including the application of waterproofing membrane.
End of February 2020: Update 3
There is lots of action at this stage of St Sophia's facade restoration. We see the re-rendering of surfaces, the excavation of the rendered topping to reveal corroded steel reinforcement, a few finished painted surfaces and plenty more to do.
