WA was chosen to remove scratches on glass panels caused by welding sparks on a major commercial building in Perth, Western Australia.
EnduroShield WA was selected for the project following a successful demonstration of the EnduroShield glass restoration system process and due to their high level of technical knowledge and experience in the restoration of glass.
Owned and managed by Brookfield Multiplex, the new BHP Billiton Office Tower stands 234 metres high and offers a total of 86,000m² of premium quality A-Grade commercial space across 45 levels.
The building is targeting a 5 Star Green Star Design rating and a 5 NABERS base building energy rating. BHP Billiton is the anchor tenant occupying 34 floors, while Price Waterhouse Coopers and Barrick Gold will occupy the remaining space in the building.
Though Brookfield Multiplex completed construction three months ahead of schedule, many of the glass panels were damaged during the construction process by extensive grinder sparks from the fabrication of stainless steel finished pylons. In addition to the grinder sparks, there were a number of panels that had been scratched during installation. The glass needed to be either restored or replaced.
EnduroShield WA completed the glass restoration project over a number of months and frequently after office hours to fit in with building maintenance schedules. During the restoration project, a total of 124 scratches were removed from 23 large glass panels. Over 180 hours were spent removing grinder marks from many panels.
