Fielders Steel Roofing was engaged by BGC Constructions to supply Finesse Prominence roof and wall panels for the prestigious National Anzac Centre project located within Albany Heritage Park, Western Australia.

Designed by Peter Hunt Architect and built by BGC Constructions, the National Anzac Centre was built to honour the Anzacs of the First World War. The striking building provides panoramic views of King George Sound, from where the first Australian and New Zealand troops departed in 1914.

Opened on 1 November 2014 by the Australian and New Zealand Prime Ministers to commemorate the 100th-year anniversary of the deployment of Anzac troops, the building features large galleries, curtain wall windows, exhibition spaces, interactive multimedia displays, unique artefacts, rare images and film and outdoor observation areas.

Fielders supplied 180 square metres of Finesse Prominence roofing and wall panels in COLORBOND Woodland Grey.

Peter Hunt Architect specified Finesse Prominence for the roofing as well as wall cladding to give the building its bold appearance. Time was also an important factor as the installation needed to be completed quickly to achieve the building’s opening deadline.

The architect’s impressive design was recognised in 2015 when the National Anzac Centre was named the state’s best Heritage Tourism Project at the Western Australian Heritage Awards. The building has also won two Western Australian Master Builders awards for Best Commercial/Industrial Building and Excellence in Roofing (Metal) in 2015.

Installed by AB Roofing, the Finesse Prominence roofing and wall panels were fixed onto a composite substrate of metal battens and timber joinery. The panels were delivered to site and then formed over three different angles, wrapping around the top and the bottom of the building.

The Fielders Finesse range includes Fielders Prominence, Fielders Shadowline 305, Fielders Neo Roman and Fielders Grandeur; each facade profile features a unique aesthetic appeal that adds the perfect finishing touch to commercial and residential buildings alike, and is designed to deliver a high end look to roofs and walls across Australia. Easy to install, the cost-effective Finesse range is one of Australia’s leading exterior cladding options that can be tailored to any project requirement.
