There’s a massive cover-up in progress at Dunedin Railway Station!
We’re busy installing an elaborate scaffold over the main station building. Then we’ll cover the scaffolding with canvas covers and shrink wrap and start the second stage of roof repairs and maintenance at the prominent Historic Place Category 1 building.
The massive tent will protect both the building and our tradespeople from the weather as we work on the roof. Parts of it will be moved along to the next section of the station once we’re done with the main station building. When the whole project is finished, Braziers will re-use the scaffolding and canvas covers on their next project, and send the shrink wrap to Invercargill to be recycled.
While the scaffold tent will be an impressive landmark in its own right, we didn’t want anyone to forget what the Railway Station looks like while we’re on site over the next couple of years, so we’ll also be installing a scrim printed with a photo. If you stand the right spot, you should still be able to get a convincing selfie in front of Dunedin’s most photographed building!
