SAS International custom-designed and manufactured a metal ceiling system for a challenging application at the prestigious 1 Bligh Street office building in Sydney’s financial district.

The first office tower in the Sydney CBD to achieve a 6 Star Green Star Office Design rating by the Green Building Council of Australia, 1 Bligh Street is the next generation in high performing sustainable office space combining leading edge design, technology and sustainability. The building also received the 2011 Asia Pacific Property Award and the International Architecture Award.

SAS International’s metal ceilings have been installed within the environmentally acclaimed building, which features elliptical-shape floor plates and a column-free atrium offering abundant amounts of natural light and spectacular views to Sydney’s Harbour Bridge.

SAS International manufactured a custom designed metal ceiling for the perimeter zones. The perforated metal ceiling panels were installed to help achieve correct air flow from the chilled beams. The company’s technical expertise helped meet the design challenge presented by the curved nature of the building.

SAS International’s custom ceiling solution featured perforated rectangular panels interspersed with 3.6-metre long, non-perforated trapezoidal panels for taking services such as sprinklers.
