A Sydney developer approached Rise Products to help bring to life a seven-storey boutique residential and mixed-use building in the inner-city suburb of Mascot.
Comprised of underground basement parking, ground-level retail and five levels of apartment living, the project required construction materials for a range of applications. With an emphasis on being able to meet tight project timelines, and access to cost-effective materials delivered to site on demand, Rise Wall was the permanent formwork solution chosen for the load-bearing walls, external walls and a range of other above and below ground applications.
The project team selected Rise Wall for its compact lay-flat design, which reduces transport costs and on–site material handling. The standardised panels, delivered flat-packed to site, are 600 per cent more compact than their standing size, and can be shipped anywhere in Australia within just one to two days.
Rise Wall Water Resistant (200mm) PVC panels were used for the development’s load-bearing walls and throughout the ground floor, as well as the basement, fire stairs, and lift shafts, creating a water and impact resistant structure for high traffic areas.
Rise Wall Super Finish (200mm) was utilised for load-bearing walls on levels one to seven and the 5.2m high 200m3 podium external walls, which were able to be were poured in a single day. Featuring a finished surface for both internal and external use, the fibre cement lined Rise Wall Super Finish panels provided an ideal substrate for the paint and acrylic render finishes to be applied. The walling system can also be used hollow as a non-structural wall system allowing services to be installed once erected.
