The 73 Fairfield Avenue project was extensive earthquake repair works to units A, B & C at 73 Fairfield Avenue, Addington. The units were built in 1960’s and are time framed, single storey units on piles and perimeter concrete foundations with Summerhill stone veneer. There is a carport attached to unit B, and Unit C has a garage.


The scope of works for all 3 units were identical, and this comprised of structural re-levelling works that comprised of excavation, concrete pits, disconnection of bearers/piles and house lifting on jacks. Externally, the timber fences were replaced, the block wall was removed and replaced, external painting was completed to the cladding, block wall and fence, the garage/carport floors on Unit B & C had cracks repaired and the driveway leading to all units was fully removed and replaced.


Internally, all units underwent major earthquake remediation works, such as removal and relay of new carpet, full interior repaint, reinstate all joinery and curtains, new plumbing fixtures and new electrical wiring.


The tenants were moved out during the construction works as organised by IAG. Watts & Hughes were diligent in making sure that the works were completed to the specific timeframes as to ensure the tenants were not moved out for longer than they needed to be.
