2017 DCC Award Winner
Pyrmont Fire Station, Honestone
First Place: Overlays – ¼” - 2” / Over 5000 SF
This inner city fire station that doubled the building size, involved blending new with old over a total of four levels.
As a Heritage listed building, all existing finishes had to be protected, meaning timber door treads, floors, and skirtings were all left intact. Material delays were plenty and once onsite product was craned through century-old windows. The overlayment product life was minimal in the Australian summers, and polishing was tedious to create the correct amount of aggregate exposure. Judges commented on the nice blend of new and old areas receiving the overlayment and the finish.
