Heritage church #2: St John’s Cathedral – The Deanery
Sitting within the grounds of St John’s Cathedral, this 1840s detached house has historical roots as Queensland’s first Government House, The Deanery (formerly Adelaide House) has seen generations of history unfold.
Glegg Manufacturing embraced the task of preserving this prestigious landmark with a pairing sure to stand the test of time: Z600 and custom manufactured heritage profiles to match the original sample.
For The Deanery, we supplied installers, NPS Commercial, Z600 in:
Custom-fit roofing sheets for the existing dormer windows
Due to the historic importance of the building, we worked closely with Heritage Architect, Ivan McDonald, and it turned out just the way we wanted. Perfectly!
Heritage church #3: custom copper work
For a church on Brisbane’s southside, we recreated a copper ceiling vent. This vent was a significant undertaking, not just because of its size but it’s incredible detail and complex design. Measuring at 250mm wide, the vent ran along the full length of the church’s ceiling – a staggering 28 metres. NPS Commercials, were our trusted installer for this project.
For this project, we:
Reverse-engineered the original: Our team examined the original ceiling vent sample. This was our blueprint to create a custom tooling press.
Custom-tooling press: We created a die template to produce the exact same shape and look as the original sample. At this stage, we conducted thorough testing to ensure we were confident we had the perfect match.
Production: -Once we were happy with the sample, we put it into production and make it in copper.
Reverse engineering is a common undertaking at Glegg Manufacturing. We take great pride in our ability to consistently replicate out-of-production profiles and one-of-a-kind heritage solutions.
