Rochele has recently completed the complete exterior painting of Mantra on Quay or Skyline Apartments. Located in the Brisbane CBD when first built it was the third tallest residential building in Brisbane.
The 2,631 m2 site was formerly home to the 4BC Radio Studios, and is located on the Brisbane River in close proximity to the Story Bridge. The upper levels of the tower boast spectaculars views down both reaches of the Brisbane River.
The building contains 192 residential apartments, including two 2-level penthouse apartments. It is designed by Brisbane based nettletontribe architects. Uniquely for a CBD building, the complex also includes tennis court as well as a gym, steam room and heated pool
The painting of the property was undertaken while the hotel and apartments were fully operational. Rochele Painting specialises in these large scale repaints and it takes a lot of knowledge and experience to be capable of repainting skyscraper high-rise properties while they undergo their regular business operations.
Rochele used a combination of standard painters and abseil painters to complete the project. There were a number of challenges that were overcome during the course of the painting project that included the G20 summit that saw the precinct locked down as well as one of the largest hail storms in recent history.
