Reliable Plumbing Services collaborated with Deakin University’s project team to deliver the scope, design and installation of a turnkey solution for a longstanding waterproofing issue at the BC Building, Burwood Campus.
The building’s canopy was leaking due to a compromised installation of the existing Alucobond sheets and silicon materials.
Reliable Plumbing Services were tasked with creating a watertight and aesthetically pleasing finish in a live university environment.
The solution incorporated key energy targets, budgeting and OH&S requirements, and access limitations in this prominent, high traffic area on campus.
After a thorough analysis, and consultation with the university, our solution was to install high performance Colorbond cladding over the top of the existing Alucobond.
This would not require the use of silicon and would prevent further water egress and subsequent water damage to the building. The project also involved complex scaffolding and working with ropes to safely access and install the new cladding on the steep pitch of the canopy.
