The scope of work on this project was the restoration of an existing home with historical significance including complete upgrade of internal finishes.

The first part of the project was to remove roof tiles in sections while covering the roof to protect trusses and ceilings. The timber branderign was either cleaned or replaced. Broken tiles needed to be sourced through the IMAFA due to the age of the building. Carpets and wallpaper was removed, ceilings where damaged and replaced with new. The electrical system needed a complete replacement and also house fitted with new ducted air-conditioning. The kitchen was removed and refitted with cupboards, tiles and appropriate fittings. The age of the building presented a key challenge but also the security was a concern as it is one of the residences of the premiere.
