Queensland State Netball Centre

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.

Industrial Water Project of the Year 2016

Laing O’Rourke’s Northern Water Treatment Plant – Wandoan QLD, has been named the Industrial Water Project of the Year at the 2016 Global Water Awards. “The application of DfMA methodology (Design for Manufacture and Assembly) resulted in a significant reduction in site hours, improved productivity and quality with a material reduction in safety risk, when compared with a traditional ‘stick built’ approach.”

To construct the acoustic roof and walls of the treatment plant, Durra Panel, Durra Steel Sections (roof purlins and wall girts) and metal cladding were assembled on ground into large modules (9m wide x 16m long) and then crane hoisted into position using the Durra Lifting Frame. The 5000m2 building envelope including the acoustic lining was completed in less than three weeks. “Laing O’Rourke delivered a high quality product that received praise from the client on a number of fronts, including seven separate safety awards.”
