Sydney Park chimney restoration

We ensured the brick kilns on the historic site are maintained and conserved.

Project Status: Completed

What we’re doing

The Sydney Park brick kilns and chimneys made a significant contribution to the building industry of Sydney and NSW, and they have great cultural and historical importance. 

We undertook restoration works on 2 of the 4 chimneys to ensure the historical brickworks site, in the north-west corner of the park, is maintained and conserved.

The works included:

  • removing vegetation from the mortar of chimney 2 and chimney 4
  • repairing and reinforcing cracked bricks and mortar on chimney 2
  • rebuilding the top section of chimney 4
  • improving the structural stability of chimney 2
  • installing a copper sheet cap on chimney 2 to prevent water penetration.
