Gatehouse Apartment Complex had structural issues with their cantilevered balconies. SCS helped document the project, included some value-added solutions involving the extension of some balconies to make them more user friendly; and decreasing the scope of work where it was not necessary. SCS was able to help the Owners Corporation achieve façade rectifications, balcony replacements and painting for half the projected cost.
Key scope aspects included:
- Reduced overall costs to the Owners Corporation to keep within budget;
- Staging of the project to prioritise the structurally compromised balconies first;
- Continued communication and engagement with the Owners Corporation and all owners.
