The Milano Verve Apartments located in Swanston Street, Melbourne is a luxurious 36 storey tower with 463 apartments, constructed in 2006. The apartments are ideally located in the centre of the city and offer completely serviced apartments that are a unique and affordable alternative to hotels by providing the comfort and conveniences of a home. They offer both deluxe and executive one or two bedroom self contained apartments that are stylishly furnished with an urban contemporary design. The complex features an inbuilt swimming pool, sauna, spa, tennis courts, fully equipped gym, cinema room and easy access to the hard rock climbing centre. The Milano was designed to match the decadence of a Milanese Villa and blends the charm of old world Milan with the freshness and diversity of modern Melbourne.
SCS was engaged for works to level seven, to re-tile all of the balconies, which involved removing all tiling, glue and re-tanking the area. The purpose of the works was to ensure that the newly laid tiles were 25mm higher than the outfall to the roof in an effort to prevent water pooling on the balconies. New flashing was also installed in front of the balconies ensuring that they fall onto the new clip lock deck roof. The scope also required a new Alucobond up stand around the perimeter of the new deck roof area to match the façade of the swimming pool enclosure next door; as well as relining the eaves below the decked roof area.
Scope of Works:
- Demolition of pre-existing balcony tiles, screed, flashings and metal deck roofing and gutters
- Installation of new membranes and screed
- Installation of Alucobond panels, box gutter and new metal deck roofing.
