Designed by Fortey & Grant Architecture & First Marque Designs, the renovated building on the tip of Curraghbeena Point also retains its classic façade with subtle Art Deco references, only footsteps from the ferry wharf. The conversion of the previous 6 x 2-bedroom apartments on 3 levels, into four whole floor luxury apartments also comprised the addition of an internal elevator linking each apartment to the stylish reception foyer, new balconies, high-level interior finish, and two underground floors, including a parking garage to enable vehicular access and basement areas.
After review during the planning phase of the project by engineers at John Romanous & Associates, PENETRON ADMIX, a crystalline waterproofing admixture, was specified to provide the Clifford Residences’ concrete structures with long-term protection from the saltwater environment. Holcim, the concrete supplier, added the admixture to the concrete mix used for all below-grade structures, including the foundation slabs, retaining walls, elevator pits, and the stormwater retention tanks. Subject to wind, salt, and contaminates from the ocean, the building’s concrete roof slab was also treated with PENETRON ADMIX.
