Project Requirement

Alongside Bond Bryan Architects and Morgan Sindall, the goal was to reduce overall costs and increase productivity to ensure the project was delivered in an expedient manner.


fermacell Gypsum Fibreboard was used for all internal partitions made from only two wall types, helping to simplfy management on site.
It was infact fermacell's 1S21 system installed for the majority of the internal partitions, which comprises of one board either side as opposed to a two board make up with conventional plasterboard. This in turn improved the speed of installation and significantly contributed to an ahead of schedule project completion and delighted customer.

The durability qualities of the board futher saved time as the installation was able to start on an open building envelope, starting with the staircase and hallways. 

The project is also the first project to be given the fermacell 20 year impact warranty.
