Wonthaggi Old Post Office - Replacement of Roofing

Notice of Works

Bass Coast Shire has engaged DAS Constructions Pty Ltd to undertake the replacement of metal roof to Wonthaggi Old Post Office building located on the corner of Watts Street and McBride Avenue.

This project is a part of the 2021/22 Capital Works Building Renewal Program and is fully funded by Council in the order of $15,000. Temporary scaffolding is currently being installed and construction works are anticipated to start Friday 10 September 2021 and programmed to be completed within 3-4 weeks, subject to favourable weather, material/supplier availability and any further COVID-19 restrictions.


Project Background

  • The current metal roof and box gutter has deteriorated and needs to be replaced
  • The ground floor office area (directly underneath the roof) is experiencing water ingress, most likely caused due to the leaking roof system
  • The internal finishes such as ceiling, walls and carpet remain in a damp condition

Benefits to the Community

  • The roof replacement will provide a watertight building and prevent water leaks into the building
  • The ground floor rooms can be restored into a usable office space
  • Minimise costs in relation stormwater damage and ongoing maintenance issues

What to Except

The refurbishment works will include:

  • Temporary fencing installed to cordon off the construction work area
  • A scaffold with steps will be installed to access the roof
  • Handrails will be attached to the brick parapet
  • Demolition of existing metal deck roof and box gutter
  • Construction of new roof and box gutter
