Ivy was engaged to undertake Stage 2 of the slate roof restoration works at Valentines Mansion (Malvern House), the Malvern based junior school campus of Caulfield Grammar. Ivy was able to undertake the works over 2 school holiday periods with a high attention to program and resource management, ensuring the works were completed prior to the return of the students to minimise disruption to their learning schedules.

The conservation works included; full replacement of the slate roof, new internal cast iron downpipes, installation of new grade 316 stainless steel flat roofs, traditional render repairs to parapets and chimneys, timber window and roof timber repairs and civil drainage works to the existing driveways including full reinstatement of the asphalt.

We worked closely with our specialist scaffolding contractor to create a personnel stair and material hoisting system for accessing to the roof and chimneys from within our site compound without affecting the building occupants’ access.
