The Emu Plains Art Gallery was built in the 1960s to enable artists in Sydney’s western suburbs to showcase their artworks. Consisting of three separate buildings, the gallery’s main timber building has been suffering for some years from moisture penetrating around the walkway that surrounds three sides.
To fix the problem, Charles Glanville Architects, working on a voluntary basis, specified the Wolfin waterproofing system from the Projex Group to seal the damaged areas. The Wolfin system was chosen because of its track record in sealing timber and its reliability on government and semi-government jobs around Sydney.
GRG Waterproofing carried out the installation, rebuilding much of the walkway and soffit and then installing Wolfin S membrane to the walkway – leaving the membrane exposed.
