Heritage; untried materials; historical latent conditions; logistical minefields; innovative design elements. These complexities associated with heritage construction are what make great construction projects at Schiavello.
Our people are technical experts in all things heritage construction. Natural problem solvers, we thrive on the most complex and challenging projects which often involve local councils, state governments, heritage protection bodies and foundations. We have a proven track record within this space, having delivered a number of high-profile projects across Australia including the Docklands revitalised Central Pier precinct, the grand Adelaide Railway Station, the home of the 1956 Melbourne Olympics aquatic events, ‘The Glass House’, as well as various Parliament House projects across the country
Ultimately, it’s the pursuit of precision that drives us; we relish those projects that most contractors would rather avoid as we look to complement the historical significance of architecture. We like to get involved at the earliest possible opportunity to provide technical advice on design management, structural engineering, logistical coordination, heritage protection, material selection and prototyping. The aim is to not only solve problems but achieves bold, innovative outcomes to bring these spaces to the forefront of architecture today.
