ALPOLIC®/fr, an aluminum composite panel from SGI International , was the façade material of choice for Sydney’s One Central Park building designed by award-winning Parisian architect Jean Nouvel .

“ALPOLIC®/fr was the specified ACM for this landmark project due to its sustainability, green rating, workability and Codemark Certification,” said SGI.

“Asteroid Metallic, Champagne Gold Metallic, Silver Metallic and Dark Grey Metallic were the colours of choice and allowed the building to maintain visual linkages to the surrounding industrial developments.”

One Central Park is a joint residential/retail complex that forms part of the Central Park masterplan which also includes 11 buildings, around 2,000 apartments and a distinctive collection of shops, cafes, restaurants, terraces and offices.

ALPOLIC®/fr is an Aluminium Composite Panel that is specifically designed for the construction industry. A non-combustible mineral filled core sits between two skins of 0.5mm thick aluminium to make up the panel.

The material meets international fire codes and has also obtained Codemark certification. When combined with its accommodating aesthetic and budgetary considerations, ALPOLIC®/fr sets the standard for fire safety.

ALPOLIC®/fr is a Green Star(R) relevant product as verified by Ecospecifier Global’s Technical Opinion and is also relevant to the LEED(R) tool of the US Green Building Council.

The panels are available in a wide range of Solid, Metallic, Sparkling and Prismatic colours and now also includes the new NaturArt Series featuring Stone, Timber, Metal and Abstract finishes which are produced with a unique image-transfer coating system.

The light but rigid panels have helped broaden architectural horizons and have inspired new aesthetic and functional achievements in building design around Australia.

Backed with a manufacturers warranty from Mitsubishi Plastics, SGI says they can also guarantee innovation, quality and value on all projects.
