This project involved a remediation of 27 one and two storey apartment units on top of a two storey carpark podium in Charles Street, Mt Eden.

Canam worked close with the Project Manger, the designer, the structure and fire consultant to develop the most cost and time effective solutions for the remedial process to fulfil the quality expectation of the client.

The work included a full replacement of 3 storeys high timber framed wall structures including temporary propping down to the basement. The logistic for all trades including material transport was only possible over the small gable area off Charles Street, based on the situation that all other 3 faces have shared boundary walls with the neighbouring properties.

The façade cladding consisted of aluminium-weatherboard cladding over a drained ventilated cavity. The Project also included an upgrading of the fire rating, ensuring that the apartments are working as a separated fire cell as required.
