CAWDOR, NEW SOUTH WALES, AUSTRALIA

An hour south-west of Sydney, the Camden Valley Inn is set amidst five acres of gardens overlooking the Razorback Mountain ranges.

A significant $15million redevelopment was complete in September 2019, restoring the heritage listed buildings to their former glory and creating brand new family-friendly dining and entertaining precinct. This precinct now includes a pavilion, marquee, beer garden spaces, as well as a public bar, garden arbour and lounge, bistro, pizza bar, coffee bar, and private dining areas.

The venue also boasts a dedicated conference and function space, as well as a petting zoo and children’s playground, all designed to maximise the views and outdoors through the use of Breezway Louvre Windows with fixed lite glazing. Breezway Louvres can be opened wide to maximise natural ventilation into the entertaining spaces to keep visitors cool and comfortable during their stay.

Renovated General Gordon Hotel with Breezway Powerlouvre Windows

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.

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.
