Shoalhaven City Council deemed that the existing Surf Life Saving Club had a number of non-compliance issues that required addressing. As such, Nimbus Architecture and Heritage was commissioned for works involving fire upgrades (coordinating and designing a new complete system of fire and smoke alarms, emergency lighting and exit sign system in compliance with the BCA). Other compliance upgrades included improving the internal stair and balustrade, replacement of the external timber stairs with hot dipped galvanised material in line with the BCA, and the development of essential services floor plan for each storey (emergency lighting, exist signs, smoke doors, solid core doors with door closers, exit doors, smoke alarms, hose reels, fire extinguishers, street hydrant, and lightweight construction within the premises). Maintenance, refurbishment and make-good works were conducted for the remainder of the building, including works to the three-storey viewing tower and provision of a new roof.
