Cedar West combines traditional craftsmanship with modern technology to create beautiful replacement doors and windows for classic and heritage-listed buildings.
We are able to custom-build beautiful timber doors and windows that complement the historical and cultural significance of the building. We can also incorporate custom modifications to suit special requirements, including acoustic considerations and heritage listing guidelines.
Please see below for examples of heritage projects featuring Cedar West joinery.
Old Treasury Buildings Perth
St Georges Terrace, Perth WA
Cedar West is proud to have been involved in the award-winning refurbishment of the Old Treasury Buildings in the heart of Perth.
The heritage-listed Old Treasury Buildings are situated on one of the most important and iconic sites in Western Australia, and have a rich history dating back to 1889. Over the years these State Buildings have been used for a variety of uses, including as the General Post Office, Treasury, a police court and cellblock, and the office of the Premier and Cabinet, before they were vacated and left to sit empty for almost two decades.
The Old Treasury Buildings have now been completely refurbished as part of a major revitalisation project to breathe new life into the area. The buildings have been carefully restored to return them to their original grandeur, and to create a luxury hotel and exciting mix of other hospitality and retail uses. The six-star hotel features 48 sumptuously appointed suites, dining rooms, lounge, library plus private meeting and function rooms.
Replacing over 400 windows and doors
As part of the refurbishment, it was necessary to replace all of the existing timber windows and doors throughout the buildings.
Cedar West provided a customised solution to design, manufacture and replace all of the joinery, including more than 400 double hung windows and numerous door sets. Specifications for the project were very comprehensive and included detailed requirements to satisfy heritage listing and acoustic considerations.
Our solution included the replacement of joinery with certified, sound-efficient solid timber windows and doors, which were all custom-designed, manufactured and installed by Cedar West.
This project has been recognised for its innovation and was awarded the George Temple Poole Award (the highest honour) at the WA Architecture Awards 2016, as well as the heritage award. The judges stated that this “thoughtful and thorough restoration will ensure the buildings last many more generations”. COMO The Treasury Hotel has also won a number of other awards, including Hotel of the Year (Gourmet Traveller) and Australasia's Best Hotel (Conde Nast Traveler).
Claremont Council Chambers
Stirling Hwy, Claremont WA
The Claremont Council Chambers Building was over 112 years old before it suffered devastating fire in 2008.
Refurbishment works included extensive repairs and rebuilding to restore the building to its original grandeur.
Cedar West was awarded the contract for replacement of all the existing timber windows and doors throughout the building.
Newcastle Street, Leederville, WA
The Leederville Hotel is a landmark building in the Federation Romanesque style that has been a popular entertainment venue for over a century.
The building has recently been renovated to create exciting new outdoor zones and indoor areas, as well as an updated restaurant and kitchen.
As part of the project, the original historic facade of the hotel has been retained, and the old timber doors and windows have been refurbished or replaced.
Cedar West was appointed to supply new solid timber bifold doors, windows and ornate curved architraves to restore the facade of this heritage-listed building.
