$25m extension to Parkroyal Parramatta features Vitracore G2
Designed by award-winning Architectus and constructed by Infinity; the recent 25 million dollar extension to Parkroyal Parramatta joins the long list of projects across Australia to feature Fairview’s Vitracore G2 non-combustible composite panel.
Completed in June; the Parkroyal extension project involved the construction of a new seven-storey tower with a Club Lounge, as well as 40 Club Rooms and 50 Premier Rooms that offer views of the Parramatta skyline; rendering the hotel the largest in Parramatta which is a timely response to growing business demands in the city.
When Infinity approached the team at Fairview, searching for a BCA compliant, aesthetically pleasing product that provided the same efficiencies in terms of cost, time and simplicity to install as traditional ACP; Fairview knew Vitracore G2 was the only solution.
Vitracore G2 is deemed non-combustible when tested to AS1530.1 as per the requirements as set out by the BCA. Visually, Vitracore G2 is the same as a traditional composite panel; but what makes it different is the technology of the core, which is constructed from a 100% aluminium structure rather than combustible material.
A total of 3,100m² of Vitracore G2 was supplied for the project; 2,400m² of Antique Gold Metallic 4145 and 705m² of Satin Brown Anodised 4373; resulting in a striking outcome that reflects the quality and innovation that Parkroyal is renowned for.
With Parramatta City set for an $8 billion building investment over the next five years, the city’s skyline will be dramatically reshaped by over 32 new residential, commercial and key public features and Parramatta could potentially overtake Adelaide in coming years to become the nation’s fifth-largest Central Business District.
