A large fire engulfed the State Heritage listed ‘Eringa House’, destroying the roof and much of the internal areas of the building.
Imparta Engineers provided an initial structural assessment of the building immediately following the event providing critical guidance to make-safe requirements for demolition teams entering the site. In particular, overhead hazards including seven heat affected chimney stacks were assessed using drone technology.
We liaised with key stakeholders including owners, insurer, loss adjusting, make-safe contractors, in the preparation of suitable make-safe documentation.
Due to the significant heritage value of the building, important collaboration and cooperation was placed on Heritage SA involvement during the initial make-safe process.
