This past year has brought BellMont many challenging, yet rewarding projects that were handled with the utmost professionalism by our team, leaving our clients highly satisfied. Our engineers were called upon to repair the façade and structural design of this three story Bondi Beach property due to concerns surrounding the safety of the dislodging terracotta tiles on its’ roof. In order to resolve this issue, our engineers replaced the entire roof parapet, the upper roof parapet and the penthouse cladding on all elevations of the property.
To create a stable parapet structural system for the building, the team introduced a new purlin and cladding system which responded to and eliminated any public safety concerns, giving the property new life as a bonus. In addition to this, our engineers completed concrete repairs on the building to ensure it would be at its healthiest when the job was finalised. To ensure that the structure of this building would be in tip top shape for years to come, the team decided to install sacrificial anodes to the ceilings and balcony soffits to prevent any future corrosion.
Once the roof was removed and improved and the concrete had been repaired, the site was cleaned up and the fresh facade was revealed and ready to be adored by the public for its aesthetically pleasing look and structurally perfect design.
Phase 1 - Project kickoff
It can be argued that Bondi Beach is known around the world as the most famous Beach in Australia, and it is because of this that houses and apartments in the area are something that people hold onto. In recent years there has been a concerted effort by owners to attend to their buildings either maintain them and/or update them. So it is no surprise that a lot of our current supervision and consulting work is being carried out on the beaches of the Eastern Suburbs.
Restoration of Facade with a focus on key architectural elements With this particular job on Campbell Parade, we were given strict instructions to oversee remediation and ensure that the detailed architectural work of the building is both long lasting, and from an aesthetic point of view, highly prominent. To this end, the curved facade is being moulded through a carefully designed steel construction; the structural integrity of the masonry facade is being restored; a specific colour palette has been selected and works are continuing quickly. In fact, at the time of writing, the roof tops are being prepared for their new waterproof membranes.
We encourage you to check back soon to follow this project carefully and see first hand the architectural transformation that is being achieved as Bellmont work closely with a renowned local architect to deliver this gateway project.
