Maronite College of the Holy Family using Breezway Louvre Windows

HARRIS PARK, NEW SOUTH WALES, AUSTRALIA

This project’s design concept was completed by Leaf Architecture, with the view to enclose the school balconies and give the school the ability to have full use of the walkways between the classrooms. The team at Leaf Architecture also delivered the interior design and furniture selection services, while the final architectural design had collaborative efforts by CVD Commercial Glass and Aluminium Pty Ltd and Meridian Construction Services.

Set to be manufactured and installed over the school holidays to have minimal impact on teachers and students, CVD Commercial Glass and Aluminium Windows was required to procure all materials prior to the end of year to ensure the deadline was met.

The curtain wall was manufactured by Capral Aluminium with Breezway Altair Louvre Windows installed using the Stronghold System with bright coloured backed glass and clear laminated viewing panels. By incorporating the Breezway Stronghold System into the design, this provided additional strength and safety where the louvre blades are mechanically held in place and retained using a pin system. This complies with Fall Prevention Standards. Blades can be opened to allow abundant fresh air into the building to naturally ventilate education spaces and keep children and teachers mentally stimulated.

The laminated glass installed was 10.38 clear laminated to meet Australian Standards and all colour backed glass was heat strengthen to ensure there was no potential for spontaneous combustion of toughened panels in the future.

CVD Commercial Glass and Aluminium Windows Pty Ltd has the ability to turn over large scale projects in the shortest periods of time due to their committed tradesmen and with the assistance of all suppliers.

This project was executed perfectly by Meridian Construction Services and CVD Commercial Glass and Aluminium completing the project on time for the restart of the school year.

SYDENHAM, NEW SOUTH WALES, AUSTRALIA

The General Gordon Hotel was due for major renovations in 2018 and CVD Commercial Glass & Aluminium Windows were originally contracted to install the glazing until the hotel was burnt down by fire.

The scope of works had then changed and was in planning for over a year until it was agreed upon and approved by all involved.

CVD’s scope was to supply and install the Breezway Altair Powerlouvre™ System in an Alspec Airflo Louvre Frame with Viridian glass blades to high level windows including the Gaming Room’s frameless automatic doors, the Hotel Room’s shower screens and frameless entry doors.

This project had strict working conditions and the highest of safety measures all workers had to abide by. The Hotel is owned by the JDA Hotels Group and was set out to become an outstanding Pub which boosts the highest of quality internal finishes.

The new look of the General Gordon Hotel was designed by AVA Architects and includes several distinct spaces. The focal point is the new alfresco courtyard encompassing a sculptural pergola layered with greenery and protected from the elements.

The bright Bistro area is full of eclectic furniture and styling ideal for casual dining. It’s also connected to the revamped Sports Bar which echoes the old-style public bar with its terrazzo floor tiles and historic memorabilia covering the timber walls. There are also eight new accommodation rooms on the first floor.
Chris from CVD states “Both the front and back bars feature charred wood in memory of the 2018 fire and the original heritage façade has been refreshed and revived to its former glory.”

CVD is delighted to have been part of the construction team working alongside Rohrig where they have developed a strong working relationship spanning over five years.

PEAKHURST, NEW SOUTH WALES, AUSTRALIA

CVD Commercial Glass & Aluminium Windows Pty Ltd was approached by their good client Rohrig to provide a price for the Peakhurst Inn project. With a long standing and great working history CVD was able to help Rohrig in some design aspects for this project to ensure their client design criteria was met.

This project had faced many challeneges in the course of its building with water egress issues and also strict compliance issues with BCA for emergency exits. However, CVD with the help of Alspec were able to find a solution to allow water to escape effortlessly without encroaching on the internal surfaces.

The Peakhurst Inn has recently undergone Car park Entry Works adding modern Breezway Altair Powerlouvre Windows to height windows for natural ventilation and to open up the area to natural daylight and a feeling of spaciousness for patrons to enjoy. The final completion of this project now showcases this establishment as a leader in design and finishes for JDA Hotels and a benchmark for all other venues.

Casino Christian School, New Science Classrooms & Laboratory with Breezway Louvres

CASINO, NEW SOUTH WALES, AUSTRALIA

Casino Christian School is a non-Government Christian school located in North Casino, New South Wales, providing education to boys and girls from Kindergarten to Year 12. As a rural school with an evolving new look, this contemporary design by Richard Lutze and Associates captures the imagination and creates an uplifting learning environment for students and teachers.

The emerging design signals a change from the laid-back feel of this school, to a new dynamic, a creative and prosperous school ready and willing to embrace the science and technological revolution in the school system. A new Science building with classrooms and a laboratory manages to sit comfortably in this open rural environment, while also projecting a sense of dynamic learning into the school community.

The building has been designed with modern conveniences while also ensuring a sustainable passive layout, with large openable areas facing north overlooking rural vistas, providing good natural light and ventilation to the classrooms and laboratory through the use of Breezway Louvre Windows.

Internally, the design layout and design techniques, along with the latest state-of-art fixtures, fittings and finishes have been used to create a user-friendly science building to help excel the learning and teaching for those who occupy it. The result is a credit to the Casino Christian School’s Science Faculty who were involved in the design and consultation of the building with Richard Lutze and Associates.

This project won the 2017 Building Designers Association of Australia Design Award for Public Buildings/Structures.
