Hoffman Kiln Brickworks Chimney Remedial
Client: Marshall and Brougham
Location: Adelaide, South Australia
Project Commenced: November 2016
This very unique project involved the structural upgrade of the 106 year old, heritage listed Hoffman Kiln and Chimney Stack in Torrensville.
- rebuilding the brick column around new structural steel column
- refurbishing the brickwork both around the kiln and to the chimney, via a range of remediation techniques
- structurally reinforcing the roof, including anchoring it, through the use of both steel and timber; and
- repainting the heritage signage on the chimney to increase the aesthetic appeal of the structure.
All remediation work was designed to withstand a 1:1000 year event.
West Torrens Council invested $1.5 million to restore the historic, 42 metre stack, which is the only remaining one of its kind in South Australia.
Waco Kwikform provided scaffold and hoist during remedial works. Waco was selected for the provision of scaffold and hoist due to our expert engineering, and quality service & labour. Work was undertaken with strict adherence to stringent OH&S requirements and heritage guidelines.
