Felton Court – Stage 3 Concrete Repairs

BRS Building Rectification Services are going through the process of site establishment for stage three of the Felton Court Apartments, in Coolangatta, Gold Coast’s southernmost suburb.

Built in the 60’s and situated meters from the beach, Felton Court sits hilltop of the rocky outcrop that makes up the Surfside postcode of Point Danger, Greenmount and Kirra.

Reminiscent of old school iconic Coolangatta; Felton Court is currently undergoing stage three exterior repairs/renovations, with stage one finished in 2015 and stage two in 2016.

BRS scope of works for this part of the project, has been quite diverse. Our in-house project management team have been working alongside many industry partners to develop and complete a range of upgrades.
