Brookman Building Conservation 

Conservation works to Brookman building were undertaken to maintain the heritage values of this significant Adelaide building. The castellated limestone parapets topping the 1903 building were extensively decayed from corrosion of embedded steelwork.

 

Reconstruction required sequential dismantling, re-pinning and re-bedding of the parapet stones to prevent collapse under future seismic action. In addition to the parapet works, the original damp proof course was renewed requiring excavation works around the basement of the building to a depth of three metres and the building facades were cleaned.

 

All works were carried out in accordance with Australian ICOMOS principles – ‘doing as little as possible, but as much as necessary.
