Built in the 1970s, the Ipswich Telstra Exchange was due for remedial, facade and concrete repairs.
The aim of the project was to maintain the integrity of the building envelope without disrupting Telstra operations.
Risk of falling material
The building façades had become a potential hazard with the risk of materials falling to the pavement below.
An assessment revealed the need for concrete repairs to window reveals, brick and blockwork repairs, sealant repair and tiling.
Particular challenges of the project included working on a live Telstra Exchange Building and working over high-traffic public footpaths.
Remedial repairs delivered on time, to budget
Our solution required a mix of access equipment including scissor lifts, boom lifts and rope access works.
The project was completed on time and to budget without disrupting Telstra operations. The result? The removed risk to the public. Win-win!
