McGrath House, Newcastle NSW

  • This building was badly damaged and leaning during the Newcastle earthquake.
  • Repairs and renovation to the old Westpac building in Newcastle, known as McGrath’s house.
  • The damaged building was out of plumb, the front columns and all ornate corbels were cracked and needed replacing.
  • We cut and propped back the building to a plumb state; the ornate corbel courses were recast and rendered and the internal of the building was repaired, antique sandstone rendered and totally refurbished.
