The restoration of glass blocks in the iconic King George V building at RPA, Sydney, was entrusted to us as the experts in heritage glass block removal and replacement.
The original glass blocks, having served for more than 80 years since the building's construction in the late 1930s, were largely deteriorated beyond repair. Obeco was contracted to remove and replace the glass blocks with a new patterned block (Mulia "Quadra").
The restoration of Sydney's glorious architectural and decorative heritage glass blocks is an incredible privilege and gives us a great deal of satisfaction. Visit our RPA project page for more images.
