Roofing For Three Centres for National Resilience
Danpalon® Roofing For Three Centres for National Resilience
With an extremely tight delivery schedule for thousands of square metres of Danpalon roofing, Danpal was the only supplier of multiwall polycarbonate that could deliver a project of this size, for three Centres for National Resilience across Australia.
To maintain a robust quarantine system that keeps all Australians safe within global travel in a post-pandemic world, the Australian Government partnered with state governments to deliver Centres for National Resilience in Melbourne, Brisbane and Perth – purpose-built quarantine facilities to support overseas travel and ensure the safety of the Australian community. With an extremely tight delivery schedule for thousands of square metres of Danpalon roofing, Danpal was the only supplier of multiwall polycarbonate that could deliver a project of this size for the three Centres and resolve all compliance issues.
Danpalon panels were utilised to create a translucent roofing structure, harnessing the physiological benefits of daylight for future residents facing the arduous task of quarantining after a long journey home.
Working closely with Aecom and Multiplex, Danpal was engaged to supply almost 14,000 square metres of translucent roofing for a series of walkways, linking together dozens of accommodation units at three Centres for National Resilience across Victoria, Queensland and Western Australia.
Polycarbonate Danpalon roofing was chosen due to its attractive appearance, lightweight nature and ease of installation. However, the challenge of an extremely tight delivery schedule was amplified by the global impacts on multiple levels of the supply chain during lockdowns. In fact, no other supplier of multiwall polycarbonate was able to deliver a project of this size within the required timeframes, with all compliance issues resolved.
Danpal came together to harness its national and international resources to support this project, relying on its dedicated and efficient network to facilitate the supply of such an enormous, significant infrastructure project.
Traditional 16mm Danpalon roofing panels were utilised within a concealed standing seam connection system to create a translucent roofing structure, harnessing the physiological benefits of daylight for future residents facing the arduous task of quarantining after a long journey home.
Danpal was honoured to be able to play a part in our nation’s national response to travel in a post-COVID world, finding the delicate balance between freedom and safety for all. Above all, we were beyond proud of the extended Danpal network and community who rallied together to deliver this mammoth project, at a time when the world had ground to a halt. The very construction of these Centres for National Resilience stands as testament to the power of the collective in times of extreme adversity.
