HI-MACS at Cannon Hill Anglican College Science Centre
HI-MACS Alpine White – splashbacks, fixed benches and mobile lab benches. Design: PW Architects.

The Cannon Hill Anglican College Science Centre was designed as a purpose-built and technologically-advanced Science Centre to facilitate the college’s future-focused approach to teaching and learning, enabled by new technologies. The science centre was designed for students studying Physics, Chemistry and Biology, and Junior Science. The Centre will be the embodiment of the college’s commitment to Next Practice – 'A future-focussed approach to teaching and learning, enabled by new technologies'.

Featuring four purpose-built and technologically-advanced laboratories, to complement the existing facilities, staff and students will benefit from ease of access to specialist equipment in specialist labs. The spacious and flexible learning spaces will facilitate a higher level of practical engagement in investigations and extended research tasks. The flexible learning spaces were achieved through the use of mobile lab benches made from HI-MACS Alpine White. Each lab has a fixed perimeter bench made and 10 mobile benches all made from HI-MACS Alpine White which can be arranged in numerous layouts as required. Alpine White splashbacks have been used to the fixed perimeter benches with the integrated of white basins.

HI-MACS is a dream product for designer, builder and home owner alike. Long lasting, hygienic, durable and elegant in a range of colours and styles suitable for every application. Ideal for countertops and other surface applications where durability, versatility and lasting beauty are a must. With an ever-expanding collection of colours and styles, HI-MACS will inspire interior designers, architects, commercial developers and home owners.

HI-MACS has been developed by LG Hausys using advanced polymer resin technology. The acrylic resins act as a reinforcing agent, adding extra strength while creating a non-porous surface that can be repaired if scratched or chipped. HI-MACS is joined using a special adhesive to produce a seamless look which was ideal for the Cannon Hill Anglican College Science Centre. This enabled the creation of large island units and long work surfaces that appear to have been made from a single piece of HI-MACS. HI-MACS is also Green Guard Indoor Quality Certified for schools and living environments. In addition HI-MACS may contribute to the achievement of Green Star credit points.
