Fielders were contracted by AW Edwards Pty Ltd and Cox Architects to provide a roofing solution for the large canopy of the new pavilion, to provide coverage for 85% of the new seating.
As part of the Emmanuel Catholic College extension, the brief was to construct a new two story English, Arts and Media Block and refurbishment of existing Arts block. Opened in early 2018, the state-of-the-art facility has been designed by EIW Architects led by Tony D’Andrea and his team to deliver a striking and purposeful built building for the staff and students of Emmanuel Catholic College.
Fielders Mobile Mill® was based on-site at Emmanuel Catholic College to roll the FreeForm™ sheets, delivering a faster turnaround of supply and longer sheet lengths by eliminating the need to transport the profile by road. After being rolled on site, the 15 metre long sheets were lifted to the roof and installed on the engineered clips and seamed preventing any water ingress into the roof. The benefit of site rolling FreeForm™ was that Fielders were able to modify and adjust each sheet widths and length to suit the existing structural steel tolerance on-site. This benefited the project by eliminating the tolerances in the steel work as the sheets were able to vary in shape and form.
During the schematic design stage, Fielders FreeForm™ was selected by the architects due to its architectural standing seam appearance and capability to curve and taper to suit the fan like shape and form of the proposed structure. FreeForm™ was the most suitable product on the market as it eliminated the need for step joins and additional flashings making the structure watertight with an exclusive 20 year warranty offered by Fielders. COLORBOND® Surfmist® Matt was the preferred finish to minimize any oil canning on the roof structure.
