Western Sydney University – Boiler House

This iconic build won Gledhill Constructions two awards including a National Master Builders Award for Excellence in Construction. We worked with architects Tanner Gibble Denton in order to sensitively restore this historic site. After the industrial rubbish and rubble from the building was cleared, the construction team from Gledhill managed to retain much of the brickwork, including the towering brick chimney and the original coal-fired boilers. The hardwood trusses and rafters of the building were replaced and a new timber floor, industrial kitchen, and lantern roof introduced. Outside, rectangular granite paved areas and paths were made to link a pavilion-style outdoor seating area to a raised central grassed plinth.
