Blue collar know-how pushes the boundaries of modern day construction

The GovHub features the world’s largest light gauge steel-clad façade modules. While a design of this magnitude is theoretically possible, in the real-world, the on-site challenges can be an uphill battle.
Overcoming these challenges, Industry Cladding & Roofing along with their partners engineered, fabricated and installed the façade, complete with 18 light gauge steel modules craned into position and hooked onto the building. Each module was 8m wide and 14.5m high, and comprised over 3 tonnes of Truecore® steel.
Industry Cladding & Roofing also supplied and installed: over 4,000m2 of COLORBOND steel standing seam cladding and roofing and UniCote Steel LUX Ashwood interlocking panels for the GovHub’s external walls, and soffits; as well as over 2,000m2 of Klip-Lok® roofing, box gutters and ridge capping.
Collaboration between the client, local government and associated trades, combined with extensive construction experience and knowledge, ensured that the architect’s design intent was achieved.
Discover how an approach defined by collaboration, out-of-the-box thinking and blue collar know-how pushed the boundaries of modern day construction for a spectacularly rewarding result.

University of Woolongong

We are excited to announce that in early December we opened our NSW branch, kicking off with the exciting University of Woolongong student accommodation project. The 800 bed Kooloobong site at University of Woolongong consists of three 8-storey buildings for student accommodation that are already constructed and fully scaffolded. Our cladding systems have been specifically designed to allow for installation around all of the scaffold ties, throwing up a few challenges but due to the open communication and productive design meetings with the team at Hutchinson Builders, the project is now underway.
