adelaide central market: facade conservation
Flightpath, working closely with ARUP Facade Engineers, prepared a prioritised scope of facade conservation works to the two red-brick local heritage listed City (Central) Market Buildings to Grote (1900) and Gouger (1906) Streets designed by the Corporation of the City of Adelaide in the federation architectural style.
Guided by the comprehensive observations of the ARUP dilapidation survey and supplemented by our knowledge of early twentieth century brick construction and deterioration, we have been able to develop a menu of costed conservation actions and seismic recommendations from ARUP, full works documentation and specifications were prepared to reflect the agreed scope of works. As part of the works identification phase, early photographs of both buildings were sourced to enable documents to be prepared to enable the reinstatement of previously lost elements, including ‘Federal Hall’ signage to Grote Street.
Throughout this project, we have worked closely with the Market, ARUP, MOTO Projects and WT Partnership to reconcile conservation priorities with available resources and operational requirements of the Market.
Following receipt of full development approval, the works are currently out to tender and it is anticipated works to Grote Street will be complete to enable the erection of Santa for the Christmas Pageant, with works to Gouger Street to follow.
