Here at Murphy’s Remedial Builders, we’ve spent much of our 28-year history working on, and restoring, some of Australia’s grandest and oldest buildings. To help you get a better sense of what we can do, here are four of our most cherished restoration projects:
1. Benledi House
A community space located in the centre of Sydney, Benledi House was built in the late 1880s in the Italianate style. Although grand in both stature and appearance, the property had started to visibly deteriorate, hence why we were called in. We undertook a range of work on Benledi House, including redecorating period features, replacing roof tiles and removing damp proofing to protect this gorgeous building from the worst effects of the elements.
2. Paddington Town Hall
This council building in Sydney was also built in the late 19th century. As it is located in a busy, central location, this was a challenging project. We repaired the heritage slate roof of the building and also prepared and painted the facade and internal roof parapets to give this iconic and much-loved staple of the local community a new lease of life.
3. Annandale Substation
Built in 1910 as the first substation in Annandale, this imposing building had fallen into disrepair over the years and we were called in to perform some much-needed heritage work. This included replacing and repairing roof timbers and the original slate roof, as well as fixing brickwork which had either become loose or cracked.
4. St. Peters Town Hall
St. Peters Town Hall, built in 1927, was first listed for heritage status in 2001. A challenging project due to its location beneath the flight path of Sydney airport, we were tasked with removing and disposing of the town hall’s dilapidated slate roof and replacing it with Heritage-style roof sheets.
