Regency Palms

Regency Palms apartments within Cairns North offers accommodation to a mix of permanent residents and holiday goers. Situated in the heart of Cairns and only a short walk from the picturesque beaches the facilities at this complex need to remain pristine akin to the surroundings. 

Higgins were engaged to provide maintenance painting over several years, to refresh and uplift the look of the facility. The first years of works featured the full external repaint of all five buildings contained within the complex.

While we were able to safely access external facades from Elevated Work Platforms, ground level balconies opening directly into the pool posed a problem. After draining the pool and erecting scaffolding within we were able to safely access the balcony areas. While the pool was drained we assisted the body corporate with the a pool refurbishment including replacing the pool's expansion joints. 

To finalise this first year's works we conducted minor building works, including repair and replacement of rotting timber and concrete spalling. At the conclusion of this project we received commendation as below.

"Higgins completed the repainting of our Complex in 2020 and provided us with a thorough proposal including their intended scope of works that outlined how they would protect our facility over several years. The year 1 schedule of maintenance was over a 12-week process, which included building and roof washing, building repairs, and repainting all areas including the roofs of all the buildings in the complex. We have been just as impressed with their operations as we were with their communications and knowledge throughout the sales process. As part of the repainting of the complex, our pools had to be emptied to allow for scaffold to be erected. While the pool was empty, and the repainting was being completed we were able to tie in the refurbishment of our pool which Higgins were able to organise for us as well. We have received positive feedback from the residents regarding the uplifting of the facilities, as well as the how the Higgins crew worked in with them in a very courteous and helpful way. We look forward to having them back on-site in the coming years to keep our facility looking fresh and well maintained. I would have no hesitation in recommending Higgins’ services and team to anyone in Cairns"
