SUPAWOOD’S ALUCLICK aluminium beams feature on the exterior and SUPALINE decorative panels are used throughout the interior of the main grandstand building at Royal Randwick Racecourse. This multi-million dollar redevelopment was designed by Australia’s pre-eminent architectural practices Fitzpatrick + Partners (base design) and Woods Bagot (interior fit out) and has turned this iconic Sydney landmark into a world-class sporting, hospitality and conference facility.
The fit-out contractors favoured SUPAWOOD because of their proven track record in meeting tight lead times while maintaining the highest standards in supplying consistent quality products.
The exterior and entry of the Main Grandstand building
The entry side of this building features ALUCLICK beams along its expanse under wide eaves which creates a dramatic linear effect. The beams also line the ceiling above the multilevel escalator access. At the main entrance level the beams then flow through over the entry court and into the main reception area.
The ALUCLICK beams used are in Dulux Domino custom finish to match the windows and other powder coated features. In total over 7 kilometres of ALUCLICK beams were supplied.
The interior of Main Grandstand building
SUPALINE bespoke panels in custom sable, clear, white and black timber veneered finishes are used extensively throughout the interior corridors of the main building. Much of this panelling has been vertically grooved to create a tongue and groove texture. This choice of panelling throughout these high traffic areas ensures longevity, excellent durability and low maintenance.
Throughout the interior of this building more than 2500m2 of panels were supplied including over 120 pre-curved wall panels.
Other areas where SUPALINE has been used are on the walls in the central ballroom and some of the bars, lounges and restaurants areas. Further use of both SUPALINE and SUPACOUSTIC panels can also be found in many of the corporate boxes.
This project highlights the versatility of the SUPAWOOD product range, the scope to which the products can be used in a large project and SUPAWOOD’s ability to deliver consistent quality to stringent lead times.
