With the widening of Maroochydore Rd, this 295 sqm industrial building had suddenly become highway frontage. Sadly though the design was still only good enough for the back-blocks.
We approached Transport and Main Roads and without much trouble secured approval to extend a feature awning over the road-reserve. We thought they may allow this, as it is fairly standard practice along the likes of Aerodrome Rd in Maroochydore.
A skilled boiler-maker we know that works on power-station shutdowns was on a break and keen to fabricate the light-weight SHS duragal modules that would be the frame for the awning. He set himself up in the shed and made a “jig” that would simplify the manufacture process and also result in a high standard of consistency between the modules. They had to be kept reasonably small so they could be lifted into place as utilising a crane would have proved difficult.
Once fixed to the building a metal roof was fitted to the top and face and soffits clad with ACM.
We also took the opportunity to fit further ACM panels in strategic areas where a Tenant would want signage and in some locations also added down lights on timers to display the signs. The final touch was a feature aluminium screen across the windows.
We repainted externally and internally and refurbished throughout.
HPS and the building Owner were very happy with the outcome.
In total the project cost $56k.
