The patented Sheetrock brand plasterboard from USG Boral was selected for a major 34-floor building project located in the heart of Brisbane.

USG Boral supplied approximately 30,000 square metres of Sheetrock brand plasterboard for the project at 480 Queen Street in Brisbane. USG Boral’s newest engineered lightweight gypsum product, Sheetrock delivers excellent benefits over its Standard 13mm plasterboard.

USG Boral staff worked closely with NAC and Grocon to manage the use of the plasterboard in the project. Sheetrock plasterboard has been installed in the plasterboard margin area and around the lift cores on all 34 floors of the building.

Grocon assistant project manager Cameron Starkey noted that the lightweight structure of Sheetrock plasterboard delivered multiple benefits on-site including easy transfer of the product to various locations within the building; significant time-saving during installation as well as distribution of material loads; and increased productivity.
