With its historic charm, spectacular seascapes, and abundance of wildlife, Victor Harbour is one of South Australia’s most popular coastal destinations. The town’s rugged coastline, 80 kilometres south of Adelaide, offers panoramic views and stunning granite landmarks - making it the perfect location for a new residential development, The Frontage.

The Frontage is a $12 million three-storey complex built by Adelaide builders, Candetti Constructions. The project consists of 36 luxury apartments, as well as a pool, gymnasium, three retail outlets and a secure undercover car park.

Designed by well-known Adelaide architectural firm Loucas Zahof, the airy and spacious building makes the most of the available natural light, with atrium style corridors open to skylights overhead. The apartments feature the highest quality fittings and finishes, and some of the best sea views in the district.

One of Adelaide’s leading roofing and plumbing companies, Penn Roofing and Construction, provided all roofing and rainwater systems for the project.

The apartments are roofed in 1200 sqm of Lysaght Klip-Lok700 Hi-Strength in ‘Surfmist’ Colorbond Ultra steel.

A high performance profile, Lysaght Klip-Lok700 Hi-Strength enables long spans, and extremely long runs. The wider sheets also make installation quicker, especially on bigger jobs. And with no exposed fasteners, the sheets provide a clean, smooth finish to the roof.

“We chose Lysaght Klip-Lok700 Hi-Strength because it’s really good to work with,” Dave Pennington, owner of Penn Roofing and Construction explains. “It’s a great profile to lay, and the clips make it very easy to use. Plus, the profile offers good clean lines, which was important on an architecturally designed job like this. It’s our preferred deck.”

The building’s proximity to the ocean meant that a durable, corrosion-resistant material was needed for the roof. That’s where the availability of Lysaght roof cladding in Colorbond Ultra steel comes in. Developed primarily for coastal environments, Colorbond Ultra steel’s unique combination of protective coatings makes it one of the most cost effective, corrosion resistant materials available.

“We use BlueScope Lysaght on the majority of our jobs. They are very easy to deal with. Their sales team is excellent – they’re easy to talk to and get things done. The main thing is, they’re not just interested in the sale, but in the project itself, and how they can help to make it a success,” Pennington says.
