JML to supply NeW Space façade- AP-1
National Arboretum ACT glazing to wall and roof
JML Engineered Facades is working closely with the main contractor, Hansen Yuncken and the consultant team engaged by Lyons Architecture, on the University of Newcastle NeW Space building. This dramatic building will add a new dimension to the city of Newcastle with its modern and engaging design. JML’s façade will be a key visual component of the striking external envelope.
Over the past 25 years JML Engineered Facades have been instrumental in the successful completion of many iconic façade projects in Sydney, Melbourne, Canberra, Coffs Harbour, Hong Kong, Singapore, Christchurch, London, Dubai, Abu Dhabi, Qatar, and Medina.
Works undertaken by JML include post tensioned cable supported glass roofs and walls, bespoke extrusions and curtain wall solutions and point-fixed glass walls. In addition to this they provide high performance shop front systems, street awnings, balustrades and envelope cladding systems, many of which will be utilised in some form in the NeW Space Building.
As the photos depict, many of the projects have presented significant challenges, initially from a design and detailing perspective, extending to the actual fabrication/installation and handover. This process involves JML Design & development staff working very closely with the project architects, engineers, contractors and end users to bring these projects to completion.
To undertake this process, JML has a staff of designers and skilled draftspersons in their respective Newcastle and Dubai offices, along with the project management staff and commercial systems to successfully undertake these projects. They also have a significant fabrication workshop located in Dubai with the capacity to fabricate unitised curtain wall panels using extrusions systems from many of the leading European designed and engineered extrusion companies. To support this JML has a very established worldwide network of suppliers and fabricators of glass, custom extrusions, custom SS fittings, composite cladding and the myriad of other items needed to undertake these projects.
Ironically this will be the first façade project JML engineered Facades has actually undertaken in its home town of Newcastle and the staff are very keen to complete a project that portrays their ability to successfully deliver this future landmark building.
