Builder: BGC company
Contractor: Anwest – Podium & Hospitality Areas
Architect: Hassell Architecture
Project Value: $500 Million
Formally the old FESA House site, 480 Hay Street now boasts a 5 star luxury hotel, completed in 2018. Architectural firm Hassell engaged Rondo in the initial stages of the design process to assess the projects requirements and designs. Wall types can vary significantly on such a large project, and the Rondo team were required to design a framing system solution that would be suitable for the vast majority of the project. Due to large wall heights to the ballroom areas, Rondo MAXIJamb members were required and specific Rondo engineered design detail was provided for bathroom wall locations, where the Rondo framing was to support stone linings.
Working with the project design team early on in the design stages, allowed for a collaborative approach, where any challenges that arose later on in the project could be predicted or handled efficiently at any time. The Rondo design details and information were included within the project documents and assisted the Architects, Builder and contractors on site and throughout the project. Our Western Australian Technical Representatives made a constant effort to attend on site meetings, and discussions at construction stage by both wall and ceiling contractors, Insight and Anwest Constructions, were always valuable and enabled Rondo to provide detailed effective design solutions.
