Building Guild were appointed to deliver a project within one of Sydney’s most iconic heritage listed sandstone buildings. The prestigious retail asset in the heart of Sydney’s CBD, built in 1913 for the establishment of Commonwealth Bank of Australia, was one of the first modern banks in the world.
The distinctive space boasts a wealth of history and extravagant details. The heritage grandeur is showcased in the opulent columns, high and intricate ceiling, wooden doorways, and detailed marble tiling.
Building Guild was responsible for the de-fit and make good and restoration of the striking building. We ensured that this historic part of Sydney was not only preserved but restored to its full glory.
The challenge of minimising disturbances was amplified by the full occupancy in neighbouring tenancies, hence we were required to minimise disruption from work conducted on the project. Building Guild managed these considerations through flexible work scheduling and creative technical solutions.
This heritage work was successfully delivered by Building Guild to a high standard in a constricted time frame, while also addressing the concerns of adjacent tenants.
