Brunswick Medical

Location:

Corner Sydney Road & Brunswick Road, Brunswick, Victoria

 

Client:

CBRE (VIC) Pty Ltd

 

Task:

To prepare and repaint the 2 exterior elevations.

 

Condition:

Generally the building was dirty and due for a repaint. It was heavily soiled from the constant road traffic. Additionally there had been several poor attempts at repainting the steel surfaces resulting in peeling paint.

Key Risks:

 

Building Users

The building houses a pharmacy, medical practice & specialist consulting rooms. Therefore we had to ensure full building access to patients & staff at all times.

 

Pedestrians

Being on a busy intersection, we had to ensure safety of pedestrians. In accordance with a council permit (procured by CIPS), we installed a gantry constructed of scaffolding to protect pedestrians in the event that something dropped during our works above.

 

Power lines

We were working within 3m of a power line and had to obtain a permit from the local authority that ensured our workers were safe at all times.

 

Vehicle traffic

In order to access the height of the building, we required elevated work platforms. The only space for these machines was on the road. Therefore we had to submit a traffic management plan (TMP) & apply for a Vicroards MOA. Our TMP included a lane closure on both roads using 2 traffic control persons and temporary barricades. VicRoads requested we limit our lane closure to between 9:30am-3pm weekdays.
