PEAK PERFORMERS FOR architectural wall cladding and ROOFING W

hen Watpac Construction needed fast, professional and trouble-free roofing and cladding services for two major projects at Moorabbin and Craigieburn, they relied on Professional Plumbing Contractors (PPC). PPC combine trade expertise in plumbing and roofing, giving them the edge when it comes to providing services for projects with complex roof plans.

Watpac Construction also recently engaged PPC to install Kingspan KS 1000 Series RW on the $4.25M Craigieburn Train Wash Facility. This project is a key component of the Craigieburn Rail Stabling and Maintenance Yard, which is being developed to cater for Melbourne’s expanding train fleet. PPC installed the specified Kingspan insulated cladding to both the 170 m long roof and the internal / external walls of the project.

PPC was successfully involved in this $14.2M Holmesglen TAFE Building 3 at the Moorabbin campus, which is a new 5 storey nursing education building providing state-of-the-art facilities for nursing students. The building includes a number of mock Hospital Wards, PC, microbiology, biochemistry and allied health laboratories, a 210 seat lecture theatre, co-operative learning and simulation rooms, and general purpose classrooms.

Watpac Construction’s Project Manager Aaron Driessen noted that the product allowed for a quick and hassle free installation as being pre-finished, it required no further work after installation. “The speed of installation by PPC Professional Plumbing Contractors, coupled with the prompt delivery, allowed this very long building to progress very rapidly, and provide an impetus for other trades to similarly start and complete works efficiently,” Aaron said.

The building’s External wall is comprised of Kingspan’s Colorbond finished KS1000MM PIR insulated AWP panels, which was supplied and installed by PPC. Watpac Construction’s Project Manager Andrew Ryan said “The Kingspan wall cladding material arrived on site in single lengths and was individually cranked and installed in place by PPC within time schedules, which meant we could start internal works very quickly. With external walls being on the critical path, this was a great benefit to our construction programme.” WWW.ANCR.COM.AU
