    Sylvia Park Tower - Location

    BRIEF

    A major requirement was to produce privacy screening between units as well as providing an architectural façade element to the building to maintain a functional yet aesthetically pleasing look.

    Insol provided this by using the Caldera 150 sunshade louver blade, with its sharp distinct appearance installed vertically up each side of the balconies & continued this across the roof section of each unit with surgical like precision.

    KEY CHALLENGES

     

    • Tight footprint site made for a challenging Installation
    • Limited access options for installation
    • Designing the façade allowing for seismic and thermal movement, ease of installation and practical manufacture/fabrication, including the irregularities of the steel structure we were fixing to. 
    • Designing to keep within the architect’s intent for aesthetics, shade, and privacy while also acting as a balustrade, as well as taking wind noise and vibration into account due to the long spans of louvre.
    •  


    OUR APPROACH

    Insol worked closely with the architect & main contractor to achieve the best possible outcome, while sticking within the client’s budget

    • We were able to use a proprietary blade extrusion with specially designed corner and jointing details to address concerns around the facade.

    RESULT

    Establishing good relationships with contractors allowed for the installation of the project to run smoothly given the challenging nature of the site layout and size. A thoroughly well thought out design made for a precise installation giving the project great aesthetics.
