Bay Building Group are proud to deliver a broad range of both domestic and commercial projects to the highest possible standard across Victoria, New South Wales, Queensland, South Australia and Western Australia. Here are a number of our projects that have been recently completed.
On a Friday afternoon, our Bay Building Services Major Projects Team were contacted by the adjuster to attend a prestigious women’s designer shop in South Yarra, following an electrical fire in the ceiling cavity between the ground and first floor. Our Major Projects Team immediately attended to complete a make safe arranging the electrical secure, removal of contents, floor and ceiling linings to expose the extent of the burnt ceiling and floor joists. The engineer and building surveyor were organized to attend site that same afternoon, to fast track council approval which could have taken up to 4 weeks to receive. In conjunction with the engineer, we implemented a plan to continue with reinstatement works until structural permits were received. This allowed the team to supply and install new floor joists, ceiling joists and battens with retrospective inspection from above. The works included floor tile replacement, kitchen bench top replacement, cleaning, joinery units, painting, installation of a double fire rated ceiling and ply ceiling sheeting. All works were completed within 5 days.

The TACCA Plastic Factory is one of Australia’s largest privately owned plastics companies. TACCA supplies plastics containers and shells for many food products we all consume, including fruit and vegetable products as well as Arnott’s Tim Tams. The damage occurred when a hailstorm tore through Moorebank, the hail struck the solar panels on the factory, which resulted in fire. The complex comprised of 4 factories and offices in excess of 16,000m2 of roofing and purlins. There were a number of trades involved in the restoration of the factories, including solar panel contractors, plumbers, electricians, etc. Bay Building Services coordinated the implementation of staged work areas, as there was a great deal of equipment in the factories that needed protection. A great deal of work also took place outside of standard working hours. These shifts primarily took place late Friday evenings, through to early Saturday mornings. Bay Building Services contractors also worked over the Easter break to ensure works were completed as soon as possible.

A B double truck impacted the corner of the shop frontage of this Heritage listed building. The canopy was taken off, resulting in structural cracking to the façade. Two days after the initial make safe works were carried out, a second vehicle impacted the existing props and safety bollards surrounding the affected area. The Bay Building Services Major Projects Team worked alongside the Council to ensure that all works were completed to Heritage and Council requirements. In amongst these requirements, it was important for the Major Projects Team to ensure that they could complete works without creating disruption to the surrounding businesses. The tenant was originally advised that his business would need to be closed for 6-8 weeks to facilitate works, however due to the coordination of trades and management planning from the Major Projects Team, it was determined that works could be completed and a pedestrian tunnel installed allowing the business to function as per usual. The building was originally a picture theatre and is over 100 years old and it now has a new lease on life. The project was delivered within budget and earlier than anticipated, making for very happy tenants.

Bay Building Services had been set the task of carrying out the replacement of the defective roof and wall metal wall cladding of this 8 storey high rise residential unit block. A major feature of the site which required significant planning consideration was a large 200 year old fig tree positioned at the front corner of the block and overshadowing the front driveway. As the site falls within the Brisbane city council, the tree has a V.P.O (vegetation protection order), prohibiting any damage or pruning occurring to the tree. Street closures and a 45 tonne city crane were required to navigate the materials around the tree and onto the 26 meter high loading bay. The complexities of the site access and scaffolding design in no way overshadowed the complexity of the roofing works. With 8 sections of roofing being replaced and 5 elevations of wall cladding, we saw the need for numerous elements of scaffolding needing to be built directly onto the roof.
