Arcadia worked closely with Woodhead Architects to produce a custom sunscreen system to the Façade of the new Fire Emergency Services Australia offices. Manufacturing facilities in Australia allow Arcadia to pre-assemble the Sunscreens in modules for speed of installation on site.
These offices built by PS Structures are home to 150 staff and Arcadia involvement was prominent to ensure correct natural lighting inlet and sun control to provide ultimate balance for a better office working environment. The building achieved 4.5 Star NABERs energy rating which is assisted by features like external louver window screens to reduce heat loading.
The external façade incorporates a range of Arcadia products including Spur® Louvres, Zest® Sunscreen, Match aluminium trafficable walkways and some bespoke vertical aluminium sunshades. High performance Louvres were used to The Plantroom area at the building rooftop to allow airflow for mechanical plant whilst providing, visual screening & rain defence.
