Take A Closer Look

Featuring the world’s largest light gauge steelclad façade modules, the $30 million Latrobe Valley GovHub is a three-storey regional employment hub. It has been designed to support economic growth, create jobs and drive the industries of the future.

The 4,000m2 property will accommodate up to 300 workers, including 200 new local public sector jobs. Located on the corner of Church and Fleming Streets in Morwell, the GovHub will feature modern office spaces, shared meeting rooms, a community hub, business incubator zones, an exhibition space and a locally-run café.

Industry Cladding & Roofing was engaged to complete all of the steel-clad façade works by the client and builder, Castlerock Property, who has signed a 15 year lease on the property with the Victorian Government. Industry Cladding & Roofing then brought Dynamic Steel Frame into the project to assist with the light gauge steel framework for the façade.

Together, Industry Cladding & Roofing and Dynamic Steel Frame engineered, fabricated and installed a façade framework that features 18 light gauge steel modules, craned into position and hooked onto the building.

Each module is 8m wide and 14.5m high, and comprises over 3 tonnes of BlueScope’s TRUECORE® steel. Industry Cladding & Roofing also supplied and installed: over 4,000m2 of COLORBOND® standing seam cladding and roofing and UniCote® 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.

This innovative steel-clad building features innovative design elements that have been engineered to ensure the ultimate in construction efficiency, environmental sustainability and buildability.
