Fremantle Town Hall
The restoration of Fremantle Town Hall is considered the most significant heritage project in the city’s recent history. Constructed between 1885 – 1887, the opening of the building was to coincide with the queen’s jubilee. The façade contains many classical elements including pediments, rusticated floor, corinthian pilasters, pediment windows, urns, string courses, heavily moulded architraves and bas relief decoration – all rendered to appear as natural stone.
This project involved the removal of lead paint from complete masonry façades and all timber windows and doors, render repairs, crack injection and stitch pinning to façades, repointing of internal brick walls to the bell chambers, timber repairs and carpentry to main roof alterations.
