Iconic heritage restoration

The Griffiths Teas building in Sydney’s Surry Hills is a living icon.  Completed in 1915 the grand old warehouse stood empty for the last 27 years.

This high profile heritage restoration and reuse project will be 31 apartments and 7 penthouses.  The highly sought after properties are already sold out and Griffith’s Teas will be one of Sydney’s most iconic addresses.

Award winning developer Cornerstone and architect PopovBass have appointed Woolacotts as structural and civil engineers.  Showcasing as much of the original structure is a key design vision for the Griffiths Teas project. “We are delighted to again be working with Cornerstone” said Woolacotts Operations Director, Stephen Branch “Cornerstone developments are award winning and highly sought after.  We are proud to be a trusted part of the design team”.

Part of Woolacotts engineering philosophy for adaptive reuse projects is the preservation of architectural design intent and showcasing of heritage features. “Woolacotts have been around for more than 80 years and are highly sought after for adaptive reuse and heritage projects” says Jeremy Bierer, Business Development Director. “Our engineers know how these heritage buildings were constructed and what their limitations are”.
