Esplanade Apartments stands tall at 6 Victoria Street, St Kilda. Overlooking St Kilda beach, the nine level architecturally-designed residential complex is set in an iconic location and recognised as one of Melbourne’s most prestigious residential developments.
The Owners Corporation Committee for the Esplanade Apartments in St Kilda appointed Programmed to provide a painting service to their seaside residential building.
As the building approached its eighth anniversary, an exterior repaint was called for to restore it to its former prestige.
Standing nine storeys high with difficult access, balconies and a curved façade, specialist painting providers adept at overcoming such challenges would be critical to the project’s success.
Over approximately 4,000 hours, with a team of eight painters at any one time, including our in-house specialist abseilers, and the use of elevated platforms, we safely accessed all levels of the building and balconies and returned the apartment to its full glory. The seaside property received a special three-coat paint application system to protect it from salt in the air although certain areas requiring extra protection were given an extra coat.
When access was required from apartment balconies, Programmed consulted and communicated closely with residents, handling this in a manner that well exceeded their expectations.
Programmed was commended on our management of the project and the final result.
“Project management was very good with minimum disruption to residents,” said Mr Robert Murphy, Chairman of the Owners Corporation.
“The on-site staff and supervisors were excellent at all times. The attention to detail could be seen in their preparation and application. Overall, we are very happy with the results,” said Mr Alistair Hicks, Building Manager.
