St. Josephs College Trade Training Centre - Geelong

The Trade Training Centre at St Josephs College Geelong has been completed. Award Winning Architects McGlashan Everist undertook the project, incorporating the Durra acoustic roof/ceiling system.  Durra Acoustic Pattern Panel is used in environments like this for noise control, impact resistance and low maintenance. In conjunction with Durra Steel Sections, Section J thermal requirements are easily achieved. The new centre features a Building - Construction and Carbon Management workshop where students will now be able to study Certificate II & III qualifications.

Ortech Grand Slams Noise At Margaret Court Arena

Margaret Court Arena has taken a step forward with a major redevelopment well under way with one of the new features, a fully enclosed Arena with a retractable roof.
Ortech Industries have been working with the design team on an Acoustic roof system that will accompany the pleated roof design. The Australian Made Durra Roof System provides an acoustic envelope to contain noise within the arena and keep rain noise out.
During construction, a safe and fast assembly of the Ortech system will be completed in modules on the ground. It is then craned into position and fixed onto the structure, providing a safe trafficable ceiling that allows for other trades to follow through below.
Ortech have a long track record for providing exceptional acoustic control in landmark sports and entertainment precincts Australia wide. We all look forward to a successful outcome for the home of the Australian Open.

QGC’s Northern Water Treatment Plant Project QLD – Durra Panelised Acoustic Roof and Wall Systems

QGC’s Northern Water Treatment Plant Project near Wandoan QLD is nearing half way through completion. The project consists of 2 water treatment buildings and is a part of QGC’s Water management strategy to make water treated for beneficial use for local landholders, industry and communities. Working with project contractors Laing O’Rourke, Ortech Industries have specifically designed a 6th Generation Lifting Frame that is capable of lifting full height panelised acoustic roof and wall modules of nominal 16m high x 9m wide. The modules are assembled on the ground complete with the building’s roof or wall cladding and fittings prior to crane hoisting onto the structure. This innovative panelised method of construction eliminates 90% of the risks associated with working at heights and compresses build time. Durra Panel was faced with a perforated anticon before being placed into the grid, easily achieving the acoustic requirements for sound absorption, as well as break out noise control. Contractor installers Q-Clad Pty Ltd were able to safely cover the 5000m2 building envelope within 3 weeks. A corner stone objective of Ortech is to satisfy the ever growing need for sustainable innovative construction techniques combined with modular solutions and pre fabrication – Design for Manufacture and Assembly (DfMA) methodology.
