We are replacing the roof and guttering at 36 Eton Street, Sutherland as a maintenance necessity.

36 Eton Street, Sutherland (corner of Flora Street).

Project timeline

Project start:  September 2023

Expected completion:  December 2023

Reason for work

During times of heavy rain, leaks have been noticed in parts of the building. The roof and gutter replacement work will prevent leaks and improve insulation.

Scope of work

The work include:

  • New roof sheeting
  • New guttering and downpipes
  • New flashing
  • Extension of the existing roof maintenance gantry
  • Painting
  • Removal of redundant infrastructure on the roof
  • Painting of the barrel roof
  • Replacement of the awning above the Centrelink entry.

Project schedule

Public impacts during construction

The roof will be replaced in 4 stages with each stage being completed before moving to the next stage.  During the work there will be some noise and dust during the removal and replacement of the roof in each stage.

There will be several crane lifts for delivery of new roof sheeting and guttering, and removal of the existing infrastructure.

The first crane lift will be on the 24th of September.

During this time, the south bound lane of Eton street between the Pavilion and Flora Street will be closed for several hours and detours will be in place.

We will endeavour to do crane work on weekends where possible and we appreciate your patience during this important work.
