Wylie’s Baths was established in 1907 as one of the first mixed-gender bathing pools in Australia and remained one of the last surviving examples of a venue which was once common throughout Sydney. We were engaged to undertake maintenance of the baths, remediating a leaking pool and updating existing infrastructure.
The scope of works included
- All work required the careful dewatering of the heritage-listed pool before the commencement of each shift
- We employed a 50m boom pump to deliver specially designed 50MPa fibre mix marine concrete over a 100m distance to construct reinforced concrete stairs
- After their construction, the stairs were fitted with anti-slip nosings, handrails and posts
- A major project component included pool leak repairs and general remediation which involved the installation of a new valve, pipe, and cap
Wylie’s Baths poses impressive longevity and new challenges to the conventional construction approach. We were entrusted to retain the historical integrity and spirit of the heritage-listed facility and successfully remediated the pool with the installation of newly constructed stairs and an outlet valve for drainage.
