Conspar has completed structural maintenance works at Fremantle heritage building St Patrick's Community Support Centre.
Constructed approximately 1905 and used for visiting seafarers (see Heritage Council of Western Australia) the building these days functions as a centre assisting homeless people and continues to be a place for temporary accommodation.
Conspar's involvement in helping to maintain the heritage building - an important element of Fremantle's architectural landscape - included conducting a range of structural repair work to enhance the building's longevity for years to come.
These works included extensive structural propping of the west wing of the building, installation of two Square Hollow Section columns internally and treatment of concrete cancer occurring at structural columns and beams.
The project also included removal of rusted steel fixings in the building's brickwork, the installation of new Helefix brick ties and repairing damaged brickwork associated with the rusted embedded steel fixings.
St Patrick's Community Support Centre is one of several Conspar heritage restoration projects. Others have included Mosman Park Memorial Hall (Camelot Theatre), Carmelite Monastery, St Constantine and Helene Greek Orthodox Church, the Belgium Beer Cafe and Victoria Park Police Station.
