Dine in Style at the Peakhurst Inn


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.

Kiama Residence Utilises Breezway Powerlouvre Windows for Natural Ventilation


This residential home was architecturally designed through a collaborative effort by George Carone from Carone + Dolan Design and Alison Stephens from Coble Stephens Architects.

Located at one of the highest points in Kiama; a beautiful seaside town on the New South Wales South Coast, this project took three years to design and plan, and eighteen months to construct.

Breezway Louvre Windows have been specified and installed as sidelites beside the unique front entry door to allow natural light and ventilation into this entrance even when the door is closed. Further to this, automated Breezway Powerlouvre Windows are installed above fixed lites and sliding doors in the main living area that lead out onto the outdoor entertaining area.

There is a large use of recycled timber and steel throughout the design creating interesting features that make this home quite extraordinary in appearance.

Naturally Ventilated Hydrotherapy Pool Facility

Naturally Ventilated Hydrotherapy Pool Facility


Scope Building NT Pty Ltd is a Northern Territory owned and operated Construction Company. With over 60 years combined experience, the company specialises in local building development, including the construction of the new $3.1 million Hydrotherapy Pool at Palmerston Regional Hospital.

The Palmerston Hydrotherapy Pool facility is naturally ventilated with Breezway Louvre Windows
High level Breezway Powerlouvre Windows allow hot air to escape and be replenished by cool refreshing breezes from lower level louvres
Breezway Louvres have been installed on either side of the Hydrotherapy Pool Building for natural ventilation
Breezway Louvres are ideal for cross flow ventilation and remove the need for airconditioning in the Palmerston Hydropool Facility

The aquatic facility is the first purpose-built hydrotherapy pool developed by the Northern Territory Government. The facility includes a temperature-controlled pool, with a ramp and hoist access for mobility-impaired patients.

Breezway Altair Louvre Windows and industrial ceiling fans are installed into the building to maximise natural cross flow ventilation and air circulation, thereby removing the need for air conditioning. Automated Breezway Powerlouvre Windows are installed up high so hot built-up air can be flushed out quickly and be replenished with cool air from lower level louvres. The Powerlouvre Windows are operated by the Breezway Apptivate Control Unit while lower level louvres are manually operated by Arens wind up controls. The Altair Louvre Windows are finished with a high performance powdercoat to ensure long life durability due to the atmospheric conditions and are installed in a Breezway Easyscreen Surround Frame with security bars for added protection.

Situated near the rehabilitation ward of the Palmerston Regional Hospital, the facility has been designed to improve the quality of life for patients while upskilling practitioners to better care for and treat Territorians.

Learning Areas that flow seamlessly between outside and inside

Learning Areas that Flow Seamlessly Between Indoor and Outdoor Environments


The Northern Territory’s Mother Teresa Catholic Primary School is part of a new educational precinct planned to accommodate a government and private school with shared central facilities. The precinct master plan provides an Early Learning Centre and Primary School for 450 students along with supporting community amenities.

Breezway Powerlouvre Windows up high allow hot air to be removed from the building
Children play in naturally lit classrooms with Breezway Louvre Windows
Breezway Louvres can let fresh air in while doors remain closed
Breezway Louvres bring natural light and fresh ventilation into classrooms to stimulate minds

A key principle of the design is that every learning area flows seamlessly to outside learning opportunities and internally to supporting breakout and common learning areas.

Providing children with skills and knowledge in a rapidly changing, interconnected world is a challenge. The Mother Teresa Catholic Primary School design has therefore focused on physical environment factors affecting learning outcomes including; Naturalness, Student Centered Learning and Student Engagement.

There is a Building Management System installed within the building to allow automated Breezway Altair Powerlouvre Windows to be opened to let natural light and fresh air in during favourable outdoor conditions. This reduces the need for air conditioning all year round. The use of Breezway Louvre Windows also relates to the emphasis for the school to have indoor-outdoor connections that encourage learning to occur.

This project has won the 2019 Australian Institute of Architecture Educational Architecture Award for the Northern Territory Chapter and the 2019 Building Designers Association of Australia National Design Excellence Award.
