This building is located in the heart of Joondalup opposite the newly developed Joondalup Health Campus. The eight-storey, A-grade office development will be tenanted by three Government departments — Water, Environment Regulation and the Office of the Environmental Protection Authority — as part of the State Government’s de-centralisation push. The building is designed to achieve a five-star Green Star rating & will be complete by early 2018.
DENMAC was contracted to complete the aluminium perforated façade cladding for the entire building, totalling 5,500m2. Due to the building’s proximity to Shenton & Davidson Avenue, as well as the adjoining building, it has required careful planning & coordination to be able to meet the construction requirements. The tricky site location has left no area to laydown materials onsite & no access to install from the ground level meaning all access & installation must be completed from the slab levels from inside the building. DENAMC’s proven ability to work side by side with the Tier 1 builders on these types of projects demonstrates our expertise to be able to deliver a project of this scale on time & of a high-quality standard.
The architects unique design to have the entire building clad in perforated, powdercoated aluminium panels has also had its challenges. DENAMC’s in house design team has worked directly with the Architect & Façade Engineers to develop the design including the perforated hole sizing & spacings to ensure that the Green Star rating is achieved. Once our design team completed the approval process we were able produce a full-scale prototype within our workshop for all parties to review. The prototype also allowed us to improve any loading & installation methodologies prior to starting on site.
In addition to the major perforated aluminium facade, DENMAC has also been engaged to supply & install Alpolic Aluminium Composite Panels (FR) to the building canopies and building louvres.
