Background

  • Original building was constructed from common bricks and operated as a warehouse.
  • Numerous alteration over the years resulted in mismatched bricks.
  • The new owners wanted to restore the building but retain its inherent brick character. The aim was to enhance the common brickwork facade to an appealing “face” brick facade to increase street presence.

The Challenge

  • Find an efficient and effective solution to convert the dirty common brickwork with corroded mortar joints into an attractive facade.
  • To colour match all the brickwork to achieve an authentic look whilst remaining true to the history of the building

NAWKAW in Action

  • NAWKAW’S first step in restoration process was to clean the existing brickwork and then remove and repoint the corroded mortar.
  • Once the surface was prepared NAWKAW’s technician applied the company’s unique colour penetration technology to the brickwork. This gave the building a much needed facelift and created a smooth and consistent finish.

Result

  • “The results were already visibly apparent a day after NAWKAW started, especially as there was no major scaffolding covering the work.” Ron Natoli, Project Manager
  • The brick facade was restored in a manner that retained the traditional feel of the building whilst at the same time giving it street appeal.

Other Benefits

  • Rather than set up a construction site with scaffolding NAWKAW used a scissor lift to move up the wall, which was much less invasive on the street
  • NAWKAW’s Colour Penetration Technology is formulated using colour fast oxide pigments which penetrate the surface of the masonry. The advantages of the product are numerous:
  • U.V and weather resistant
  • Quick drying
  • Resistant to mould and mildew
  • Resistant to fading, peeling and cracking
  • Minimal, if any, ongoing maintenance.
  • U.V and weather resistant
  • 25 years guarantee.

  • It was constructed in two parts in 1895 and 1915 and is a rare example of Late Victorian Free Classical and Federation Classical architecture.

The Challenge

  • NAWKAW was commissioned to undertake the total management of the restoration of the front facade of this building from its run-down state.
  • Previous rectification work that involved replacing decayed brick and mortar due to rising damp and bagging over damaged areas with cement based mortar added a greater challenge to restoration

NAWKAW in Action

  • NAWKAW firstly removed the many layers of paint and cleaned the brickwork and the building features.
  • The old mortar was removed and re pointed and the joints where tuck pointed. Old bricks were replaced where necessary.
  • The company then used it’s colour penetrating technology to rectify previous attempts at replacing bricks by recolouring them to restore them to their original beauty, matching in repaired areas with a seamless result.
