Keeping Entertaining Areas Fully Ventilated – Dee Why RSL

DEE WHY, NEW SOUTH WALES, AUSTRALIA

The Dee Why RSL has been given a facelift! The reinvented RSL club has been designed by Altis Architecture and built by Boden Projects with open spaces and international style to provide entertainment and services to more than 50,000 members.

Multiple dining options offer a world of flavour in freshly renovated sections, including the new smoking area that has Breezway Altair Louvre Windows, supplied by CVD Commercial Glass & Aluminium Windows, to keep the area freshly ventilated. The Dee Why RSL is the perfect place to catch up with friends or celebrate with family.

The experience of mateship shared by Australians soldiers is found at the Dee Why RSL every day. More than supporting returned veterans, the club has a long history of helping the community, dating back to as early as 1937.

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.

TOWNSVILLE, NORTH QUEENSLAND, AUSTRALIA

Breezway’s new secondary glazed Altair Louvre Dualair System has been specified into the newly built Thuringowa RSL located in Townsville.

Ken Tippett, founding Director of Townsville-based architectural practice, Ken Tippett Architect, designed this building after recently completing the Spectators Sports Bar and Garrisons Bistro at the Townsville RSL.

During the design process of the Thuringowa RSL, Ken Tippett specified the Altair Louvre Dualair System to suit the requirement of a commercial window system that had the flexibility of providing good natural ventilation in the cooler months, while blocking out the air-conditioning noise in the warmer months. The Dualair System was able to solve this requirement admirably due to the nature of the secondary glazed system opening wide for maximum ventilation and sealing tight to offer a sound acoustic rating of Rw 35.

The system was installed with a hybrid of automated and manual Altair Louvre Galleries with the Stronghold System into the Alspec McArthur Evo Frame. The Powerlouvre Galleries are controlled by the Breezway Apptivate Control System installed close by on the wall adjacent to the windows. The Dualair System also offers significantly improved water penetration resistance of up to 620pa for window sizes as large as the ones installed into the Thuringowa RSL.

In addition to the Dualair System, there are a number of other Altair Louvre Windows installed into Breezway Easyscreen Frames throughout the building to maximise airflow and allow uninterrupted views for occupants to enjoy during their visit.

The owners of Two Mountains Merchants worked closely with their builder, Jason Miles, to replace the front windows in their café to help brighten up the area while providing plenty of ventilation for patrons to sit back, relax and enjoy eating their meals in a cool, refreshing environment.

The owners were after a crisp ‘holiday house’ look that also had a vintage, maritime feel to it, and by using Breezway Louvre Windows recommended by Jason Miles, this really helped create the space they were after.

“We’re so pleased with the louvres – they look beautiful and are very practical.” Kate, Owner at Two Mountains Merchants.

KING VALLEY, VICTORIA, AUSTRALIA

The owners brief for this project was to create a unique destination for visitors to the King Valley, where the wines and food of Chrismont could be shared with all who visit.

A critical element of this project was to make the most of the views of the vineyards and to use the northern orientation to its best advantage. The space needed to cater for wine storage, a workable office space and most importantly a cellar door area where wine tasting would be an ‘experience’ to remember. The restaurant was to be designed as an integral part of the overall concept as well as having additional space to cater for weddings and corporate functions.

The glazing was a significant part of the design as the building needed to be expansive in length to make the most of the amazing north facing outlook. The challenge was to maximise these views while creating solar gain in winter and soften the bright sun in winter.

Floor to ceiling glazing and soft grey tint achieved the desired result. High Breezway Altair Louvre Windows on both sides of the building capture the cooler easterly breezes and create natural air flow.
