Eureka Tower, VIC
Eureka Tower home of the Eureka Skydeck is also home to a great number of residents who enjoy all that Melbourne has to offer at their doorstep. Built in 2002, the apartment pool was showing signs of deterioration and as a result body corporate manager Eureka Tower Building Management called upon Ceramic Solutions to carry out a complete strip out and reconstruction of the pool interior, coping, grates and a feature wall including a mosaic wall clock.
In addition to challenges presented by COVID19 Ceramic Solutions were able to complete the works with limited access to the level 9 pool via the carpark and stairwell for both the removal of debris and the delivery of new materials. The building remained occupied by many residents and Ceramic Solutions were able to carry out works without breaching noise or hygiene restrictions in a tight time frame of seven weeks.
Residents approved the selection of German manufactured Agrob Buchtal Amano Anthracite 25x25mm mosaics for the 24×4.5m pool walls. The feature wall with a custom-made clock face and pool floor was tiled in Agrob Buchtal Lavita Crystal Turquoise 25x25mm mosaics (matt gloss on the clock face and slip resistant on the pool floor).
The pool coping required replacement and the opportunity was taken to replace this and the grating with Ceramic Solutions’ custom-made grating incorporating the Agrob Buchtal Valley slate grey in an elegant, integrated and slip resistant solution which conceals the grate itself. All tiles are manufactured with Hytect a proprietary, stain resistant, anti-bacterial finish.
Eureka Tower Building Management and the residents are delighted with the finished product which gives their asset a new lease of life.
