Greyton is almost complete with all works for Barclay Mowlem on this latest addition to Sydney’s theatres. This new state-of-the-art theatre is surrounded by heritage buildings that were used for storage of grain, wool, etc at the old docks around the turn of the century. The Bond Store buildings as they are known were constructed with timber floors supported by heavy cast iron columns shipped in from the UK.
The fire protection of some 60 of these columns was the task of Greyton and maintaining the heritage appearance was the goal. There was also a substantial amount of new structural steel installed to support the renovations and this was all protected with Intumescent Paint, providing a 2 hour FRL. Vermiculite spray was used on three huge heritage beams that spanned over 30m between Bond 2 and 3 with a depth of 1.8m
