Perth Town Hall is an elegantly restored heritage venue in the heart of Perth. Built on the highest point of the city, the hall stands almost on the spot where a tree was felled to mark the founding of Perth in 1829.
Construction commenced in 1867 and finished three years later. For much of its history the building provided a home for many of the administrative and operational functions of the early colony.
Duratec was engaged by the City of Perth to undertake various refurbishment works to:
- Louvered openings.
- Lead gutters.
- Mortar joints.
- Brickwork and tiles.
- Timber sills, glazing beads and sashes on all windows.
The scope also included the removal and replacement of the lift service and emergency egress doors and the installation of hand dryers in all bathrooms.
Utilising a crane, the old timber flag post was removed and a new aluminium one installed, involving a partial shutdown of Hay Street on a Saturday morning.
- There was minimal disruption to the venue’s operations during the works, which were successfully completed during the winter period with high rainfall and inclement weather.
- Half road blockage to enable installation of new aluminium flag pole using 50 tonne crane, complete by 9:30am to make way for a wedding to proceed.
- Provided alternative repair options enabling cost savings on multiple occasions to allow for additional scope to take place.
- Facade Refurbishments
- Preservation of Heritage Structures
