St George’s Hall is a heritage listed building situated in Newtown NSW and was constructed in the late 1800s. The building is now part of the Newtown High School for Performing Arts, and a recent refurbishment program for the school included scheduled works to paint the external building façade.
The building was in desperate need of remedial repairs and restoration to preserve and protect the distinct characteristics of St George’s Hall. The many ornate elements of the building are areas where water can pool and enter its way into the substrate causing significant damage.
After conducting a site visit with the contractor, we created a detailed project specification, providing a substrate repair and coating system that would restore the deteriorated external façade and offer maximum long-term protection.
Due to the number of ornate elements requiring repair Emer-Patch High Build was used, as it is ideal for undertaking overhead and vertical repair work due to its lightweight and easy to use properties.
Once the repairs work was completed, Emer-Clad Façade was applied due to its excellent waterproofing properties and high flexibility. It also provided a decorative finish that matched the existing heritage colours of the building.
- Emer-Clad Façade is a high build protective and waterproof coating providing protection from water ingress and aggressive environmental elements
- Emer-Clad Façade is a highly flexible coating and can accommodate movement of pre-existing cracks of up to 1mm
- Emer-Clad Façade is Dulux tint aligned, providing a total colour solution
- Emer-Patch High Build is designed for concrete repairs where its light weight nature and high build characteristics makes it ideal for vertical and overhead concrete repair work
