The WAIS building when constructed was a new state of the art sports academy built for West Australian Institute of Sport. DENMAC were involved in the installation of the external composite cladding and stainless steel camera rails.

The composite cladding to the external of the building was completed using Alpolic prismatic white G80 with a 15mm sealed express joint system. The build included two (2) picture frames around the main windows plus the main entry walls to the building which included curves within the cladding. The picture frames presented several installation challenges due to the primary steelwork having a twist within the sides. DENMAC was able to straighten this steelwork using the secondary steelwork subframe to create a uniform look between the picture frames.

The stainless steel custom camera rails were designed, fabricated and installed by DENMAC. All rails and brackets were manufactured using 316 grade stainless steel in finish no.4. There are approximately 13 different types of rails to support cameras within the building.
