THE UNIVERSITY OF MELBOURNE – WILSON HALL

PROJECT COMPLETED

April 2015

PROJECT DESCRIPTION

Upgrade to the existing staircase inside the heritage-listed ceremonial hall at the University of Melbourne. Works included an extensive modification to the existing staircase to achieve compliance with BCA and DDA requirements. This entailed the restoration of existing timber treads and the installation of carpet, steel and timber balustrading, stainless steel handrail, steel riser infills, stair nosing and tactile indicators.

Challenges were met working with hazardous materials requiring a hygienist and specialist Class A licensed contractors. This required high coordination and liaising with various bodies.
