Task
This large condominium of 25 high quality units required a complete external make-over including:
• Demolition of 2,000m2 of tiles and thick slab toppings and replacement with quality Travertine
• Concrete repairs and application of painted membrane system to planter walls
• Cavity flashing, brick and render repairs
• Application of heat welded sheet membrane system by Wolfin to external areas
• Installation of new storm water system including establishing new surface falls and plumbing
• Detailed patterned tiling
• Installation of custom pool fencing

Special Challenges
• Large slopping site retracted from street resulted in limited material handling options
• All pathways curved on plan requiring a high amount of accurate tile cutting noting that no skirting tiles were used to cover finished cuts
• Over 350 large custom cut Travertine sections to be installed as treads and pool copping
• Working with a demanding and meticulous client, Andersal engaged skilled labour to achieve high standards
• Tile supply was under the control of the body corporate and the tile supplier was less than totally co-operative; none the less Andersal achieved exceptional quality within budget.

Solutions
• Skilled labour employed to achieve high work quality in waterproofing and tiling
• Low height buggie Manitou, large crane trucks and a system of conveyor belts were used to transport screed material and tiles throughout the site
• Full time Site Manager for duration of works with QA tightly controlled
