Renovation of a 10th storey apartment in Perth City - Part 3
Further to our previous post, work has progressed very well on the Perth City 10th floor apartment.
The old windows were removed and new double glazed windows ordered and we were very lucky weather wise as the windows had to be removed before the new windows could by craned up to the 10th floor and installed.
The apartment faces across the Swan River so the weather could have been a problem given the storms that we’ve had very recently.
On the day of the crane lift, several people organised to have any larger items to be delivered to the site so that they could be craned up on the same day.
The double glazed windows were glazed (glass was fitted into the frames) before they were lifted up. The large plasterboard sheets were craned up on a pallet and some of the longer stone cabinet tops were craned up as they wouldn’t have fit into any of the lifts.
Once all the items were craned up, they were stored ready for work at the beginning of the new working week, as no works are allowed other than the crane lift over the weekend.
The windows are then fitted and the flashings to be installed.
The aircon people, plumbers and electricians have come back in to do all of the tube outs now that the steel framing has been completed.
The plasterboard wall linings, ceilings, lighting troughs, air tight bulkheads for the aircon, are nearly all finished, the cornice has been put up and just needs to be sanded.
As the apartment is part of a strata, any items that are installed to the outer of the building, must comply with the strata body colour scheme. The window frames had to be powdercoated to match the existing bronze colour of the old frames.
Any painting of the walls and ceiling to the balcony, must match the colour that was there before the renovation began.
Some of the hinges on the door frames have been swapped over so the doors open the opposite direction.
The clients completed their prestart and all of the plumbing fixtures have been called up by the cabinetmakers so that the holes for the undermount sinks and above mount basins can be cut to the correct size.
Some of the cabinet carcasses were taken up the lifts and put in place in readiness for when the cabinets are delivered ready for installation.
The waterproofer has been in and waterproofed all the wet areas, the tiles will be delivered early next week and the tiler will start later next week as the bases of the cabinets have already been put in place, the tiled hobs can be built under the wet area cabinets so the remainder of the cabinets can be put in place when they are manufactured.
