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 last container doors have closed for a large walkable ceiling project in Bologna, Italy. The high end clean room manufacturing facility required over 40,000m2 of our trafficable ceiling system, equivalent in size to a roof over the MCG.
For the past 4 months our Bendigo manufacturing facility has neatly packed over 60 40’ shipping containers of Durra Panel and Durra Steel Sections. Overall a staggering 1,000 tonnes of locally sourced straw fiber and 350 Tonnes of Australian made steel. Jeff Bothe – Workforce and Industry Development Manager from Bendigo City Council came by to congratulate our Factory manager, Jamie Townsend on a great effort.
