3 STOREY FIRE DAMAGE

Fire caused by underfloor heating caused extensive damage to 75% of this beautiful residential home. The Bay Building Major Projects team were brought in to complete not only the reinstatement of this high end home but to complete private works as well. Asbestos was identified at the original inspection and specialist removal was organised at commencement of works. Once removed, demolition began on the unsalvageable areas of the home. The home is 3 storeys, which required scaffolding to complete exterior works and to reinstate floor/ceiling to the ground bedroom internally. The Major Projects Team assisted in completing private works to facilitate the architect’s design and finishes. Private works included painting level one, plaster and painting to level two, high end finishes to the kitchen and eastern bathroom, replacement of flooring in bedroom and roof structure as per engineer’s report.

DESIGNER RETAIL SHOP

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.

TACCA FACTORY – STORM & FIRE

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.

HERITAGE SHOP FRONTS

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.
