Museum of Australian Democracy at Old Parliament House

By DJAS Architecture, Architecture & Design Practice

One of Australia’s most important buildings, Old Parliament House was home to federal parliament between 1927 to 1988. Today, it is a heritage icon housing the Museum of Australian Democracy, telling a story of Australian history and democracy.

From mid- to late 2021, external refurbishment works were undertaken at Old Parliament House, including roofing repairs and the installation of new pavers to improve and upgrade the rear terraces. The refurbishment works were overseen by Manteena Security and completed by Ranger Projects, who laid Anston reinforced pedestal pavers as a modern outdoor flooring option for the space.

By opting for pavers installed on a pedestal system, Ranger Projects were able to incorporate surface water drainage grades into the sub-base beneath the pavers, ensuring a smooth and level pavement at the finished level. Anston pedestal pavers in cool grey Atlas were specified for the project, providing a layer of pedestrian security via the embedded reinforcing mesh in the body of each pedestal paver.
