Overseas Passenger Terminal, 130 Argyle Street, The Rocks

Originally built in 1960, the Overseas Passenger Terminal consists of 4 main storeys of steel-framed construction with concrete floor slabs.

The non-compliant handrail and old balustrade still existed on the viewing platform staircase as well as the two northern balconies of the Quay Restaurant at Level 3 & 4.

Another major issue that needed immediate attention was the efflorescence which had tracked down to the Level 4 balcony of Quay Restaurant.

The tiles to this stair were red quarry tiles, with beige coloured textured nosing tiles.  The render had been previously repaired and joints within the render leach efflorescence.

NPM analysed and planned an effective solution for replacement of the old balustrade and non-compliant handrail, along with new tiles to rectify the efflorescence issue in those areas.

Our construction services team track processes as well as develop custom plan-of-action that help achieve customer satisfaction and ensure project delivery on time.
