Did you know the Sydney Park kilns were built in 1893? The Sydney Park kilns in St Peters are an industrial heritage that holds cultural and historical importance for the city. UMS is proud to have delivered Graffiti Maintenance works for the City of Sydney at Sydney Park. Our customer was highly satisfied with our team’s great effort and here is how our team removed the graffiti off the 125 years old kilns:
“Multiple site inspections were conducted prior to our work starting to ascertain the most appropriate methods to remove the graffiti from the brickwork to ensure both the safety of our workforce and to protect the heritage listed asset. Safety inspections were conducted during the work process due to the changing environment of working in a public space.
“UMS engaged the services of Universal Mobile Tower Hire to access the main stack using a truck mounted and operated 15 meters Cherry Picker. All Safety Work Method Statement (SWMS) and relevant licenses were checked and copied prior to work commencing. The graffiti was removed using chemical and low water pressure from the heritage brick surface. All graffiti was removed from the stack and the customer was satisfied with the outcome.
The second component of the works was to remove the graffiti from the brick kiln building adjacent to the stack. For these works, a mobile cherry picker was deployed. The unit was operated in accordance to specifications by two UMS qualified operators. Safety concerns were addressed with the required pedestrian traffic management implemented ensuring that traffic was re-routed around the work site. All remaining graffiti was removed by paint out, and again, the customer was very satisfied with the outcome.
UMS Chippendale depot key account staff were present for the entirety of the job and final inspections with final sign off on the successful completion of the tasks carried out with the customer and our Contract Manager.
All works were completed before time and in accordance with prescribed works specifications.”
