Our Customer

More than a century old and spread over three levels, this French provincial-style building located at 180 Little Collins St, Melbourne, is a striking residential and commercial complex that is also an iconic Melbourne landmark.

Project Description

The high standard of presentation Programmed has consistently helped the Georges Apartments maintain, has meant that the Owner’s Corporation has kept on enlisting Programmed for painting maintenance. The renewed long-term agreement included a full re-paint of the building to provide it with a clean and refreshed exterior.

Project Solution

The complex’s inner-city laneway location and building design combined to pose a compounded challenge, especially with regards to access which Programmed efficiently overcame with a scissor lift and highly skilled abseilers. In addition to safely accessing and painting the tall external walls and light wells, Programmed also needed to be flexible to work around residents’ needs, while timing the re-paint to take into consideration surrounding construction works.

Meanwhile, Programmed’s unique arrangement which allowed costs for the works to be spread across the life of the agreement made the full repaint and on-going maintenance to retain the Apartment’s visage affordable, whilst also providing the Owner’s Corporation with easy budgeting.

Project Outcome

As a satisfied customer, The Georges Apartments Owner’s Corporation Committee was very happy to re-appoint Programmed. They were pleased with Programmed’s performance and reliability throughout the project and continue to recommend Programmed to others. The iconic Georges Apartments will continue to be maintained to the highest standard, with a façade that appropriately reflects its classic heritage and stature.
