The iconic ashbursts of the 1980s are gone.
But in the years since, a few iconic tiles have been restored to the roof of Ashbursts Hotel.
It’s been more than 10 years since the building was transformed into a modern hotel and the ashburst tiles are still in use.
The original tiles were built in the early 1970s by the Ashburst Company, which supplied the building with its roof.
But the company’s main client at the time was the Queensland Government, which used the tiles to make the roof tiles that were used for the Coronavirus coronavirus treatment centres.
After the coronaviruses were declared, the company was forced to cease supplying the tiles and their use ceased.
In 2016, the Ashbury Company’s owner, Melbourne-based Melbourne-listed Kaleidoscope, decided to restore the tiles in order to provide the state with a new source of roof tiles for its existing hospital buildings.
“They’ve been in the ashburners since the beginning, and we’ve been using them for a couple of years,” Kaleidspace CEO John Kaleides said.

One of the company ‘s tiles was removed by the Queensland government in the late 1990s and put back into use.
The ashburster tiles were also installed in the Ashburns Hospital in Melbourne’s south-west.

There were a number of other renovations undertaken at Ashburn.
For example, in 2012, the building underwent a £30 million upgrade to include a $1 billion carbon sequestration plant.
Since then, the facility has been used to treat some of the world’s most polluted sites, such as the China Harbour and South China Sea.
Despite the improvements, the tiles still had some problems.
They were originally designed to last for up to 10 years, but the ash burns them out pretty quickly.
“They just don’t last,” Mr Kaleide said.
“But there’s been a lot of work done to get the tiles back in service, and I think they’ll be fine.”‘
I’m in no hurry to retire’The tiles are used by many other hotels in Melbourne and Brisbane.
Mr Kaespe said while the tiles might not be a fixture in a new hotel, he was in no rush to retire them.
He said he was not looking forward to retirement either, as he was working on the company website for a new company.
I’m not going to retire until the ash bursters are back in the building.
