Kehoe Myers Consulting Engineers is currently involved in four such projects including the Burke & Wills Hotel, ‘The Bank’, The Goods Shed and the Empire Theatre where the challenges of retaining the beautify of yesteryear is combined with the vision for modern design and a useful future.
‘The Bank’ development is an iconic sandstone premises built for the new South Wales Bank and then Westpac Bank, it is currently in the process of being refurbished into a contemporary building while protecting its heritage values. There are plans for a roof top restaurant enclosed in glass with a retractable roof, as well as office and retail spaces.
The challenge of taking an old building constructed to past standards and bringing it up to current standards is one that Kehoe Myers Consulting Engineers is keen to take on. To take these heritage listed buildings and help transform them for current and future generations to enjoy is hugely rewarding for all involved.
