DuPont Building - External Refurbishment
Macquarie Park, NSW

Improving environmental credentials while adding new life into an older building was the motivating force behind this Macquarie Park refurbishment.

Designed by Saunders Global Pyrmont and installed by SJ Higgins, the large fixed-louvre panels were manufactured in QS Industries' Ocean | Series profile, measuring in at 300mm wide, then powder coated in Dulux® Alphatec Orange x15 Gloss.

A once plain-Jane corporate headquarters despite its highly prominent location, the new look DuPont building has now been transformed into a truly striking salute to both forward-thinking attitudes and clever design & architecture.

Bourke Street Public School
Surrey Hills, NSW

Bourke Street Public School is in the process of change.

Originally built in 1884, this historic Surrey Hills school complete with stunning sandstone facade has only recently been granted approval for a substantial $7.3m refurbishment. Along with much needed restoration on the original buildings (on the day these images were taken stunning heritage copper guttering was being installed!) this development will allow for an additional 100+ students to attend the school with the building of additional classroom, meeting & library facilities.

It is these new facilities that showcase QS Industries’ brand new Fineline | Series aluminium quad blades in three custom-mesh styled sunshade panels. The combination of deep yet extremely thin blades allow for maximum natural open lighting within the various spaces, yet reduces the impact of distracting & damaging direct early morning & late afternoon sun. And the precise yet random styling of these panels, finished in Dulux® Silver Kinetic Pearl Satin, both compliments the geometry of the compressed cement cladding of the new buildings, while neatly contrasting the heritage credentials of the originals.

Warringah Mall NSW

Another funky use for our perforated panelling!

The kiosk was constructed using a range of materials, yet features an outer skin of QS Industries OSG-80350/29 3mm perforated aluminium panel.

MacArthur Lexus & Clinton's Toyota
Gregory Hills NSW

Welcome to the new year, and the first QS Industries Project Showcase for 2017. We begin by heading to a huge growth area in Sydney's south west – Gregory Hills…

The area around Gregory Hills in Sydney’s south west is a huge area of housing growth. Any green field development of this scale requires a whole range of supporting facilities such as schools, parks and retail. Into this setting enters the premium semi-combined automotive showrooms of MacArthur Lexus & Clinton’s Toyota.

Two variations of fixed elliptical louvres are used to create clean lines and effective shading over the expansive glazing in both facilities. In the north west facing Toyota showroom, wide 200/40 Hickson | Series louvres are used, while the north easterly facing Lexus showroom uses the narrower 91/21 Bentley | Series profile.

A large vertical installation of operable Hixson | Series elliptical louvres is also used to create a private yet versatile alfresco entertaining area for both staff & clients. Facing south west and accessible internally from the mezzanine, this area is ideal for enjoying & managing both the morning sun or late afternoon breeze.
