The products’ installation system was another consideration for the team. As lightweight building materials, both BareStone and Express Panels use a common, reputable construction system, Cemintel’s Commercial ExpressWall, ensuring a swift and efficient build, saving the project time and money.
“Cemintel’s BareStone and Express Panel cladding proved the perfect choice for this project, as they provide a lightweight, cost and time effective, facade solution, that looks good and will perform long term,” adds Paul Reimer from Carfax Commercial Constructions.
The final result was described by PCYC Club Manager Daniel Allars as “The best facilities in the state’’ as the club is now home to a fantastic suite of facilities including two premium indoor sports courts, a modern gym, a full gymnastics set-up, various multipurpose rooms and a fully catered café.”
With the redevelopment proving instrumental in driving the club’s growth, and over 1,000 people joining once the new facility was announced, the PCYC is set to continue its role as a key community hub for Hornsby locals for the next fifty years, and beyond.
