• Carrabella Street Kirribilli – Refurbishment

Kirribilli Unit bathroom renovation - double vanity unit

SBP totally stripped out the unit for the Clients who would be using the flat as a pied-a-terre for their business trips from Hong Kong, altering rooms and installing new services. The Clients were keen on high quality and cost marble and granite finishes in bathrooms and kitchen, but otherwise quality joinery in white which combined with the predominantly white walls and their beautiful art works gave the place the feel of a gallery.

While not in the high security section of Paramatta Jail, the Linen Services stands within the stone walls of the original prison and security clearance for construction employees and negotiated precautions over personnel and equipment access were very important. The construction of the extension is robust concrete ground floor, concrete columns and first floor on deep RC piles with a steel framed and metal clad totally open laundry working and packaging space at first floor level. The Energy Australia transformer for the Linen Service and other prison areas, the power supplies and electrical boards were upgraded during the work.
