Project Description:
Ceiling Replacement

R. O. Steel Roofing were involved in the renovation and upgrade of the Sport and Aquatic Centre at Sydney University. The project was awarded the MBA Excellence in Construction Award for Refurbishment/Renovation/Extension up to $5m. The judges made note of a number of factors including the challenge of keeping the pool operating while work was safely carried out overhead.

We were contracted to remove and install a new long lasting anti-corrosive product to the ceiling over the swimming pool, as the original one had corroded away because of the pool environment. This complicated operation required the scaffold to be installed in the pool and moved several times during the procedure, as two lanes had to be kept open to allow swimmers to train for a period of time each morning.
