Workplace and Lobby Refurbishment

1The Dexus commercial and industrial estate in St. Leonards includes thirteen office and warehouse units. The Building Guild was appointed under a lump sum contract to refurbish the estate including works to facades, building entry, lobbies and re-waterproofing of the rooftop car park. The scope of internal refurbishment primarily consisted of upgrades to the four lift lobbies within the estate; new emergency and feature lighting, new timber panelling as well as replacing existing tiling to the lift lobbies. The Building Guild worked with the design team and Dexus Property Group to identify suitable colours for the facards, tiling and timber alternatives to those originally specified to overcome lead-time challenges. Researching options and providing coordinated samples of alternative tiles and timber identified a cost effective and readily available solution, allowing the project to proceed on schedule.

2Our scope for the trafficable roof top car park, was to provide an engineered re-waterproofing solution and membrane with a 20 year warranty. We delivered a cost effective and highly reliable solution for the project. Our innovative thinking and commitment to excellence in this process has provided Dexus Property Group with a high value solution that has potential for further application across their portfolio.

In our efforts to bring some new life into the Frederick St, St Leonards commercial building, our design included clean lines in timber which needed to be installed with precision. The Building Guild’s flexible approach to working with us to deliver the best possible result was fantastic and their workmanship is second to none.
