Works are progressing well in the exciting redevelopment of the Claremont Hotel. We saw the Forward Works demolition successfully completed in July and the main construction works are on the cusp of starting.
During the demolition stage, the existing back of house areas to the building were demolished, while great care was taken to protect the heritage building fabric that included the iconic street facades and verandahs, along with the heritage internal components. During the demolition stage, there were many hidden surprises that were uncovered, hidden graffiti (with some interesting messages!), secret doorways, and concealed archways were among the things discovered, some of which will be exposed and celebrated as part of the new bar!
Keep your eyes on this space, the construction contract is being executed and they will soon mobilise on site, and we will provide updates on the construction as it happens.
