Benledi House Heritage Restoration 1

The recently completed project at Benledi House at Glebe Point Road, Glebe.

Works completed included:

  • Replacement of roof tiles
  • Replacement of corrugated bullnose roofing over balcony
  • Replacement of roof perimeter guttering
  • Replacement of box guttering between roof sections
  • Repair of damaged external render
  • External painting of historic Benledi House

Works were completed in time for the Benledi House/ Glebe Library Open day held last Saturday 20th May so the community could enjoy the wonderful work completed by all involved.

A big thank you to the management, staff and tenants of Glebe Library and Benledi House for their patience and understanding during the project.

Congratulations to the BGIS projects team and in particular Rudolf Lapan – (Project Manager) for delivery of an excellent project.

Well done also to the contractors, Murphy’s Group Services Pty Ltd who have done a great job of not only delivering an excellent project with only a few minor defects but also managed to co-ordinate their works around the tenants, staff and community who frequent the area around Benledi House with a minimum of fuss.

Please enjoy the following photos of the freshly restored Benledi House!!

Kind Regards,

Glenn Merry
