Scope

Park Beach Plaza required a facade product that was fast and easy to install, would provide anti-throw and anti climb characteristics from within the car park, while allowing natural light and ventilation to meet the Australian Standard requirements.

In addition, the client desired the flexibility to be able to move the screens as sections of the car park may be converted to retail space in the future.

Red Dog Architects presented Atmosphere® as a potential solution.

 

Progression

Locker Group worked with Reddog, and the builder, Edwards Construction. The final design incorporated three different Atmosphere element profiles, and two different perforation configurations.. The facade was powder coated 5 different custom colours, the combination of which hinted at the beachside location of the car park.

The car park itself provided several challenges as the facade had to navigate drain pipes and interface changing floor levels.

In addition space for installation was kept to a minimum as the car park was fully functioning during the installation period; understandably the Facility Management didn’t want to restrict car parking options for its customers.

 

Outcome

Locker Group delivered the panels in individual “stacks” or columns, with each panel labelled according to its position. Installation of the Western facade (900m2 )was carried out within 9 days. Locker Group’s team installed panels onto the cables on the ground and then lifted them into place. Surpassing everyone's expectations for speed of installation.
