Western Australian company Pindan have won the National Commercial/Industrial Construction Award in the $5 million to $10 million category at Master Builders Australia’s National Excellence in Building and Construction Awards 2015.
The project consisted of the restoration of the old heritage council offices following a destructive fire in the library and chambers in 2010. Claremont Council Chambers is an iconic building sitting on the Stirling Highway in Claremont, WA.

“Pindan have taken this old heritage building in Claremont and revived it to something of brilliance.”
The project consisted of restoring the old heritage council offices and building a new three-storey extension to the existing offices. The extension included precast panels, delta hollowcore flooring, aluminium cladding and ornate ceilings.
“Not only did Pindan restore the old building and extend the workspaces, they restored the old clock on the gable façade, a familiar sight for generations of local road users,” he said.
“The restoration turned out beautifully and was delivered on time despite the industrial design and material challenges that Pindan faced. Pindan are very worthy winners of this National Excellence Award,” Wilhelm Harnisch said.
