Following some extensive internal water damage to the building, inspections identified that the structural condition of a number of chimneys was unstable. These chimneys, eight in total, are a prominent architectural feature of this building. Their repair and remediation was critical to maintaining the condition of the building overall.
Armidale Railway Station is an item of State significance, particularly for its grand 19th century first class station building. The building exhibits significant architectural and aesthetic attributes that reflect the continuing importance of Armidale as a major regional centre and significant railway station.
In March 2015, Extent Heritage were commissioned by Sydney Trains to prepare a Statement of Heritage Impact for Armidale Railway Station. This was in response to proposed repair works to eight chimneys on the Main Station Building to prevent further deterioration of original roof fabric. Tasks included:
Site inspection and analysis
Review of relevant legislation and planning controls in relation to the project
Assessment of heritage impacts of the proposed works
Provision of project recommendations
Continued inspection and design/heritage advice during works
