Nursery Depot, Barwon Park Road, AlexandriaRepairs to the Roof of Building – City of Sydney Council, Project Delivery Service Brookfield

Located in Sydney Park, this council depot hosts the local authority’s nursery and horticulture equipment and operations staff.

This project involved repair and replacement to structural steel beams in the roof of this City of Sydney council depot. Several purlins were replaced as they were nearing the end of their safe lives and were suffering from severe corrosion. Murphy’s undertook preventative maintenance work on the remaining beams and purlins, grinding out minor rust and applying rust guard anti-corrosion treatments to prevent deterioration throughout the structure.

Scissor lifts were used to access the underside of the beams. Our roofers made use of temporary anchor points and safety harnesses to make repairs to the roof ridge cappings and roof sheeting.

Murphy’s completed the works without disturbance to City of Sydney Council’s use of the depot. Murphy’s management liaised with the client to work around their requirements and program work areas and activities so the depot could continue its normal operations for the community.
