The National Trust were able to fund restoration of the externals to this building from proceeds of the adjoining new development by Multiplex a large commercial builder. The site required access onto Multiplexes land to position access equipment. This created an overlap that required sharing access with Multiplex and the industrial relations of dealing with a fully unionised site.


Complete heritage restoration of all external stone facades, roof repairs and new hydraulic installation. Given its CBD location, safety, logistics and site managing had its challenges.

Project value:            $850,000

Completed:               June 2012


CLPM worked closely with the client representative and Multiplex to achieve the work scope on time and to an agreed fixed price. CLPM maintained a working relationship with Multiplex and the CFMEU on site throughout the program of works.
