After recommendation from the builders of GCR Construction Group, Bond Plumbing have recently taken on the major amenities upgrade at Imperial Surf, in Surfers Paradise.
The first visit included removing all existing plumbing risers and water mains running in the block, strip it right back for demolition and refurbishment. Once this was done the focus went to the basement to remove the existing suspended drains, tap and cap in to the existing sewer main, and get it ready for the new sewer branches to go in.
While GCR Construction were hard at work upstairs, Bond Plumbing where doing their bit underground. Bringing new suspended pipe work to the new core holes and bringing risers up through the slab. Installing fire collars and a few extras that needed to go in too.
Once the rest of the walls were up the water rough in began. During the demo stage we had to re run the water tap in point, this meant working in with Imperial surfs maintenance crew to shut the water down to the property, while having little disruption to the holiday goers staying at the apartments above. Hot and cold water was run through out the new bathrooms and allowances made to meet plumbing standards. The plaster is up waiting to be painted and we are keen to get back in and finish the job.
When we got the call up to start our fit off, almost all of the renovations had been completed.
It was great to see how good the amendments looked, and once we completed our work it was even better. A number of toilets, showers and basins in the bathrooms, the sauna and a few other fixtures were installed to finish the job off.
Its always nice to look back at a difficult job and see how great it all came together.
For me communication is the most important part of a quality project, and throughout this build, Graham the building/project manager, and I had worked well, organising times, materials and schedules to make this job run as smoothly as possible, as well as coaching me to be a better project manager.
Big thanks to GCR, KBHI, and Imperial Surf.
