THE SOLUTION

Parklex timber cladding was chosen to break up the elevations, creating impressive feature zones in contrast to the masonry block work. As each panel is manufactured with a unique natural timber veneer, therefore no two panels are alike.

With its Everlook® overlay it delivers on colours stability, UV resistance and anti-graffiti, Parklex timber cladding requires very little ongoing maintenance, an important consideration for the council. Fire Rated Panels give extra safety to this public building.
