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.
