Heritage and Architectural Repairs – Building Upgrades

In an ever-changing world, the preservation of heritage and architectural buildings and structures is very important in providing a sense of identity and continuity for future generations.  Heritage and architectural buildings and structures represent the past history and culture of our nation; they are physical links to our past and contribute to our cultural and economic wellbeing.

When are heritage and architectural repairs needed?

The original construction materials of heritage and architectural buildings and structures are subject to a natural process of degradation over time, which is accelerated by chemical, physical and biological events.  When these defects go unattended, the building or structure is left with extensive and unavoidable damage to its’ fabric. Consequently, modest spending on regular repairs will reduce the potential for costly repairs in the future, protect the fabric of the building and save money in the long term.

The repairs and building upgrades themselves must be completed in such a way so as to ensure that the life of the building/structure is extended and remains in keeping with its original structure, historic character and features. 

As the trend of repurposing old spaces for offices, apartments and other commercial spaces continues, there’s a need for specialised building maintenance to keep these older buildings looking pristine.  Whether the space is in an old structure or a more modern building, BUSS’ skilled heritage repair team can take years of wear and tear off your property. We will:

  • Repair surviving structural membranes and systems; supplementing or replacing only the unsound material.
  • Avoid repairs which are stronger than the existing fabric and those that may lead to differential stress cracking.
  • Clean masonry surfaces, using gentle methods, to remove harmful substances and/or to reveal deterioration.
  • Ensure that repair materials match the old fabric as near as possible in colour, grain, bedding, durability and chemical composition.
