BlueScope Lysaght ’s Facades business has completed its first Victorian project by upgrading the Bellarine Leisure Centre at Ocean Grove, south of Geelong.

The project to upgrade the Bellarine Leisure Centre was carried out by Geelong commercial construction company Lyons Construction.

The company’s Site Manager, Bernie Henry, was impressed by the Facade systems application process and the finish it achieved.

He said that the complete solution based approach adopted by the BlueScope Lysaght Facades business was critical to the smooth running of the project. All the Facade panels were delivered to site individually wrapped and so they were in perfect condition and were placed exactly where they were needed.

Project architect Lionel Rosenberg from Melbourne firm Williams Ross Architects, enjoys the design flexibility offered by Facades. He said that the designs using Facades are limited only by a person’s imagination.

The system used on the Bellarine Leisure Centre project incorporated Azure facade profiles in a double skin system with ventilation and drainage between the skins.

This pressure equalising system does not require any site applied sealant between the panels. It is highly durable and significantly reduces maintenance as seals do not have to be replaced or repaired.

Azure panels have a simple, elegant design that is well-suited to large areas. The clean, sharp lines achieved with good dimensional accuracy lend themselves to projects where colour and alignment are used to create a bold statement.

BlueScope Lysaght’s L’attitude and Azure profiles are formed on advanced folding machinery which enables customised metal panels to be made to individual design specifications.

The panels are available in a wide variety of length, depth, height and joint width dimensions to allow complete design flexibility with custom design trims, flashing and accessories.

BlueScope Lysaght Facades give architects, developers and builders virtually limitless colour palette and good design freedom.

Underscoring their versatility, L’attitude and Azure profiles panels can be made from steel, aluminium, zinc, stainless steel and even copper, enabling contemporary and classic finishes to be achieved.
