Take A Closer Look

Boasting one of the most futuristic architectural exterior designs in the country, the $110 million Deakin Law School building at the university’s Burwood campus in Melbourne features a tapered curved façade. When combined with the seamless transition formed between three individual building ‘pods’ stacked on top of one another, the curved façade creates a uniquely bold, sleek finish. Industry Cladding & Roofing not only installed the 7,000 panels required to clad the curvaceous façade, but also manufactured the panels at our Bacchus March factory, many of which had to be individually hand formed due to their unique shape. Each panel not only had to curve, but taper. Imagine peeling an orange: every segment curved around, as well as up and down. This is the first project in Australia, and possibly internationally, to feature a three-dimensional curving system that runs throughout the complete façade package.
In addition to superior levels of craftsmanship,material specification was essential to the successful delivery of the project. This is why fifty tonne of Zinc flat coil was turned into curved standing seam to achieve the desired look, making this one of the largest ever orders of VMZinc in Australia. In addition to our work on the façade, Industry Cladding & Roofing also supplied and installed Spandek® to the building’s plant screen and level eight walls, VitraDual to the soffits, and Klip-lok® Colorbond® to its roofs.
