Accuraco was engaged to manage the replacement of the external glass canopy at 800 Bourke Street, Docklands.
One of the glazing panels in the canopy which surrounds the building failed. It was determined by specialist façade consultants that the failure was likely due to an impurity in the glass that could cause similar failures in the future. Our Client decided that all the external glass panels needed to be replaced.
Accuraco managed the project from tendering through to contractor appointment and the main work phases. Retail tenant’s access in this busy commercial area was controlled by developing a comprehensive staging plan.
A large degree of specialised management and negotiation skills were required. This was critical when dealing with this aspect of the project ensuring tenant’s needs were met and the project was completed within the specified time frame.
