Builder: Hansen & Yuncken,
Contractor: Ceiling & Wall Contractors
Architect: Walterbrooke and Hecker Guthrie
Project Value: $380 Million
Sky’s the limit with the $380 million redevelopment of the Skycity Casino and Hotel. The Rondo team has enjoyed being involved in this exciting and comprehensive project, working alongside; Builder Hansen & Yuncken, Contractor Ceiling & Wall Contractors, and Architect Walterbrooke and Hecker Guthrie. Rondo assisted in providing design advice for fire, acoustic and seismic implementation. Our KEYLOCK® Concealed Suspended Ceiling System, Steel Stud and Track Wall Framing System, and our new XPRESS® Drywall Grid Ceiling System have been integrated throughout the project. Rondo’s long-term relationship with Ceiling & Wall Contractors enables the project to run smoothly and the onsite coordination is exemplary A design implementation issue occurred with seismic and service clashes.
Rondo provided the solution with the inclusion of GRIDLOK® bracing, which Rondo is the exclusive Distributor for in Australia. This provided improved compliance for the project. Our Rondo Rep Graham Eldridge describes GRIDLOK® as being a “more professional method, it comes with it’s own bracket system, and it gets contractors away from cutting and folding studwork.” GRIDLOK® was specified in this project to compliment monolithic and baffle ceilings. Located in the heart of the Riverside Plaza, its historic roots as a train station date back to 1985. Modern day transformations will turn the historic location into a thriving entertainment complex. Its location enhances the new expansion which includes a luxury hotel complete with Casino, Palladium areas, restaurants as well as bars and cafes on the ground and lower levels. The iconic development is set to finish in mid-2020, attracting domestic and international travellers.
