Third floor concrete addition to old electrical sub station in Surry Hills

Sydney CBD concreters and formworkers Surry Hills.

This conversion of an old substation into a three-story terrace in Sydney’s inner city was interesting and challenging, yet extremely rewarding for our team.  Even with access problems (the property was down a small lane), the results were spectacular and well worth the effort.

Not only did the addition of the third story add additional space to this old two-storey substation but it also gave the new owners a huge roof-top entertaining area.

Anyone familiar with Sydney’s inner city and CBD area is aware of the impractical street plan and tight laneways.  Overcoming access problems was an ongoing challenge for our team on this project however we believe “thinking outside the box” is what differentiates us from other concrete companies and contractors.

Additionally, the client was let down by the original concrete company who walked away at the last minute.  Another of our specialties is taking on emergency, last minute and urgent concreting jobs.

After taking on the Surry Hills project we successfully completed the project two weeks ahead of schedule.
