In the wake of the 2018 Gold Coast Commonwealth Games, a new sports facility is starting to take shape in the Sunshine State. The Queensland State Netball Centre in Nathan’s Sports and Athletic Hub will boast a 5000-seat show court as well as changing rooms and sports medicine facilities for community and elite athletes. The State Netball Centre will also play host to Suncorp Super Netball Team, the Queensland Firebirds.
Working together with Hansen Yuncken and the Queensland State Government, Ortech Industries has supplied both Acoustic Ceiling and Wall Systems for the Stadium, with our Durra Acoustic Pattern Panel providing Impact Resistance, Internal Sound Absorption whilst mitigating Traffic Noise Intrusion from the adjacent Pacific Motorway.
Durra Panel has now been installed in 6 of the 8 National Competition’s Home Stadiums – A testament to the high acoustic performance of Ortech Building Systems.
The Queensland State Netball Centre is set for completion mid-2018.
Ortech is proud to once again be involved with the Melbourne Convention and Exhibition Centre during the final stage of their multi-million dollar expansion.
Located in the heart of South Wharf, the expansion is set to be finished mid-2018, and will see Melbourne set the benchmark for exhibition spaces nationwide.
Given it’s close proximity to major roads as well as requiring high performance acoustics within the convention areas, Durra Panel was a natural choice to help mitigate break-out noise and provide Acoustic Absorption within the ceiling envelope.
Combined with our Durra lifting frame and the fact Durra Panel is trafficable once installed, installation across the structure was practical, efficient and above all, safe.
Working closely with Probuild, the expansion has been a massive undertaking, with MCEC stating on their website: “Over 16,000 square meters of roofing panels are being erected over the new exhibition space – enough to cover 100 hockey rinks”.
Ortech is proud to celebrate another successful export of our Durra Building Systems – this time bound for Auckland, New Zealand – to cap off what was a busy year of large-scale production.
With a 1,750 seat auditorium among many other exciting features of Life NZ’s relocation to their new Central Campus, Acoustic Performance was highlighted as a priority considering the church’s close proximity to residencies and major roadways. Durra Panel provides a natural solution given its ability to mitigate break-out noise to the surrounding neighbourhood.
8 Containers have been sent over with the project set to be finished in early 2019.
The Durra Acoustic Ceiling comprising of Durra Panel and Durra Steel Sections as featured on Discovery Channel’s Build it Bigger in a recently aired episode.
‘Drought Proofing Australia’ is based around the Victorian Desalination Plant, it delves into the construction of one of the largest Desalination Plants in the world.
“The reverse osmosis building is not only the largest of the 29 structures on-site – it’s also the largest industrial facility ever designed to be virtually invisible to passersby. The enormous 6-acre roof will be topped with 100,000 native plants growing on a high-tech foam membrane system. The vegetation will preserve views by mimicking a gently sloping hill; but this design isn’t just to make the plant look pretty. It brings the added benefits of sound dampening and protection from corrosive salt air.”
The Durra Acoustic Ceiling was successfully installed over the entire roof area of the Reverse Ozmosis Building using the Durra Lifting Frame.
