Removing Independent Living Unit Termite Damage

Sensus Building Group’s team of construction experts are rebuilding an independent living unit decimated by termite damage.


“The area was extensively damaged by termites, so the entire frame had to be removed- including all external and internal walls, door jambs and window frames,” said Sensus Project Manager, Brendon Horne. “The only structure salvable was the roof which was remarkably still in perfect condition because of the higher termite resistance rating compared to the existing wall frames,” says Brendon.

“To maintain the structural integrity of the building, the team safely propped up the roof and ensured the load bearing walls were stabilised before beginning demolition.”

The team also added tie downs to the roof which will secure it in case of future weather events.

“Once complete this 100k renovation will see the unit completely transformed,” says Brendon. “We look forward to installing zero-transition flooring in the bathroom, a modern kitchen and energy efficient air conditioning units.

The new unit will soon take shape with framing and wall sheeting currently underway.

“We look forward to touching base in a few weeks to show you the incredible transformation of this independent living unit,” says Brendon.
