1 external building 160 pitt street taylor construction retail fitout refurbishment

Taylor completed the 160 Pitt Street project comprising alterations and refurbishment of the ground floor, level one and level two of the ‘Washington H. Soul Building.

The refurbishment of the Soul Pattinson & Co. Ltd.’ (W. H. Soul) Building included structural upgrades to meet new codes, installation of a new lift and shaft, lowering of the rear of the ground floor, creating a void in level 1 at the main entrance, installation of a feature stair from ground to level one and heritage restoration works to the exterior and interior of the building.

Positioned on the East aspect of Pitt Street Mall, the building’s location has architectural, historic and aesthetic significance. As such, ensuring compliance with the Heritage Act was of utmost importance to both the client and Taylor when delivering this project.

Prior to commencement of works Taylor identified multiple value engineering initiatives. These comprised a revised structural concept and a practical construction methodology that enabled cost and program efficiencies that were beneficial to the client.
