Insurance Work - Surry Hills

A kitchen fire caused large structural damage to the roof structure of Porteno restaurant in Surry Hills.  We were engaged to undertake the roof repairs which included ensuring the new ceiling’s structural integrity to hold over a tonne of mechanical equipment for kitchen operation.


The repairs included installing 250 x 42 smart LVL15 rafters at 450mm centres, graded battens were also installed at 500mm centres and a new box gutter framework was installed.  A new structural plywood ceiling was erected under the rafters to take the new pressed metal feature ceiling for the restaurant.  All this work was carried out in consultation with the site structural engineer.
