The Smyth Memorial Chapel located at the West Terrace Cemetery is listed as a State Heritage Place on the South Australian Heritage Register and therefore all works undertaken to the building were subject to the provisions of the South Australian ‘Heritage Places Act 1993’.
New elements of construction were required to exactly match in outward appearance those of the original building.
Moulding profiles, member sizes, construction etc. needed to match those nominated in the contract documentation and as closely as possible to the original.
Special care needed to be taken to preserve the original building fabric during the restoration process.
Traditional construction methods were followed where required by finish or where repaired elements were part of a traditionally constructed item.
The project required special care and attention to detail to ensure that such a historic building could be preserved for future generations.
