Leighton Broad as Head Project Contractor to the Metropolitan Redevelopment Authority (MRA) Elizabeth Quay Project, contracted CLPM for the reconstruction of Florence Hummerston Kiosk on “the island” at Elizabeth Quay after the Heritage listed building had been dismantled at its original site on the Perth Esplanade.


Complete heritage reconstruction of all masonry, structural timber, joinery and tiled roofing using original masonry units and timber materials and with the integration of a modern extension for repurposing the building as a food and beverage outlet, roof repairs and new hydraulic installation. Given its co-occupied location within an extensive and complex construction site in the CBD, a high degree of sophistication in safety, logistics and site management were challenging but necessary.

Project value:          $3.7 million

Completed:               February 2016


CLPM worked cooperatively with MRA representatives, Leighton Broad and neighbouring site contractors to achieve the work scope and a quality finish appropriate for a renowned Perth icon. Over 80% of all existing roof tiles and original bricks were cleaned and reused on the project.
