Moorebank Military Base Holsworthy Fitness Complex Sydney New South Wales

Modern uniform look

This recently completed project will help you understand the benefits of our 74mm polycarbonate system and and showcases it's suitability for top end commercial developments.

Everbright E610 was used recently at the Moorebank Military Base, Sydney on the Holsworthy Fitness Complex. This development consisted of the following areas;

2 x Large translucent breezeway roofs @ 7.6mtr panel lengths x 107mtr and 1 x Large translucent breezeway translucent roof @ 21mtr panel lengths x 7.5mtr set over a step purlin arrangement, incorporation locking system LS1. Seedesign loads, which shows you in more detail the different locking systems available. Our panels simply clip together making the installation process very rapid, as our product only requires to be joined every 600mm on site.
The total project area was approximately 960 square meters. Clear & opal coloured Everbright panels were used to enhance the translucent design feature within the fitness complex.

Opal & clear were the colours selected due to 65% & 73% percent light transmissions for visible light.

 

This development is the largest single Australian Defence capital works project for around 70 years since the Second World War.

The Moorebank units relocation project in Sydney's southwest for the demobilisation of the department of Defence's Moorebank site. This consists of 13 x Defence units and 4 x allied facilities that have relocated from a Commonwealth owned Defence occupied site at Moorebank to Holsworthy Barracks. This project involved the delivery of the complete relocation of 100ha of Defence assets, while at the same time preparing other site upgrades at the Holsworthy Base to support Defence needs.

The design brief for this new development was for a modern unique looking translucent system, that would be the signature statement for the whole development.
Due to the nature of this facility the client was looking for a product that was self cleaning and impact resistance. Additionally the selected material was required to have a long life span, superior thermal and acoustic performance characteristics.

Another major consideration was for a system that could provide as much natural light as possible for these areas and be ascetically pleasing. Everbright E610's increased free span capabilities, made our polycarbonate system an excellent choice for this development giving the desired results, as the Everbright system is one of the strongest translucent materials available in the world today. The Everbright E610 system gives a unique visual appearance and minimizes structural requirements making use of all the natural light available. Since less structure is required with our system less shadows are created, and as such the natural light translucency is at its full potential.

Our premiére product enhanced this development with its clean modern look, which created the correct ambience and provides a comfortable environment for all the military personnel who use this new fitness complex facility. This facility includes a state of the art gymnasium and 50mtr heated indoor pool.

Our polycarbonate system give a seamless and continuous line, with no steel frame work spoiling the visual effect. E610's integral locking bars hide the aspect of where a panel starts and where it finishes, so it becomes a continuous system giving a uniformed and conformed design feature. Creating an architectural flare, that isn't possible with any other polycarbonate system available on the market. E610 polycarbonate panels incorporate an excellent safety factor. All loading criteria are based on 0.75kN/sqm and a 50% safety factor as part of a standard specification detailing.
