Refurbishment of the old Post Office and Telstra Exchange on Macleay Street, Potts Point.
Works included the conversion of the existing building into commercial offices (41), retail tenancies (6) and the addition of a new basement for car parking. A carefully staged demolition was necessary to enable most of the existing steel structure to be retained.
The project featured the installation of new infill slabs in between existing floors, basement excavation around existing foundations, the incorporation of a car hoist to access the newly created basement car park, and the materials handling of 15m-long steel facade columns.
