Project ISPT Canberra
Products euroHush (custom) solid timber panels
europanel supplied and installed Spotted Gum solid timber panelling to 13 lift lobbies and 26 bathrooms in the base building refurbishment of 2 Constitution Avenue in Canberra.
In order to minimise the noise and vibration disturbance to the building’s tenants, specifically Australian Border Security, 50 percent of the project was installed during the night.
The wall cladding was prefabricated in panel form, completely sealed and finish coated to all faces, to prohibit any moisture loss that might occur from the pressurisation airflow from open elevator doors and elevator shaft leakage from the moving lifts, resulting in warping or bowing of solid timber.
europanel collaborated closely with the lift reveal contractor, to agreed onsite measurements, so the panels could be manufactured prior to lift reveals being installed in order to meet the construction program.
