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.
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.

The Bay Building Major Projects team were called in to coordinate the demolition and rebuild of this steel shooting shelter. The existing structure was torn apart by strong winds, storm damage and failed to meet wind loads. Bay Building Services worked with multiple consultants, architects, geotech, hydraulic and structural engineers to solve compliance issues and site constraints such as soil conditions. The main frame structure required redesign as the existing one failed to meet the wind loads. A hydraulic engineer was engaged to design a completely new drainage system, including charged down pipe drains to the water tanks. Thanks to the hard work of the Bay Building Services team, the range is now safe and fit for use for competition.

The King’s Self Storage Warehouse suffered significant damage to the roofing and roof frame following a strong wind event. As the building was over 25m high with no internal levels, access was difficult, further complicated due to the adjoining buildings. It was not possible to remove or relocate contents internally, continual onsite management and extraction of rainwater entering the building was required. In addition, fall arrest trapeze netting was installed under the roof opening to ensure optimum safety to trades completing the overhead roof works. The team accessed the affected roof areas by using cranes, man boxes and skilled climbers. They worked to remove the damaged roofing and complete rectification works. The team had the facility back to its daily operations within 2 weeks enabling further works to the remainder of the roof.

A major fire at the building resulted in Bay Building Services successfully tendering for the demolition and rebuild. The fire is suspected to have been caused by an electrical fault in the central kitchen. Bay Building Major Projects proceeded with the demolition of 1000m2 of original building inclusive of 8 major tenancies complete with commercial kitchen facilities. Large structural steel portal rafters and columns were fabricated in sections to facilitate delivery and erection. During demolition, traffic management was used to ensure vehicles could safely access and exit the building across a busy footpath and adjacent a well frequented bus stop. Whilst wet weather and numerous latent conditions hampered progress, the Bay Building Services team were able to deliver the project ahead of both the owner and the adjuster’s expectations whilst maintaining a safe work environment without incidents.Client communication was paramount with the team preparing monthly update reports for all parties involved with photos of works being completed.
