Heritage and skills restored with station’s western façade works
South Australia’s leading architectural stonemasons have united to undertake an ambitious restoration of Adelaide Railway Station’s western façade, creating opportunities for upcoming tradespeople to learn their dying craft and ensure it has a place in the future of the artisan trades.
The restoration effort is the largest that has ever been attempted at the station since it opened in 1928, and will see the careful repair of heritage columns, modillions, dentils, cornices, ornaments and windows.
Renewal SA has engaged national construction company Built to undertake this once-in-a-generation restoration project. Leading an expert restoration team – which includes the HSR Aust Group (Heritage Stone Restorations) – Built is uniquely positioned to revive this important North Terrace landmark, having years of experience in heritage and cultural refurbishment.
