The first convention centre to be awarded a 6-star green star environmental rating, Melbourne Convention Centre also had a high acoustic demand to control low frequency noise from a near by helicopter pad. A three part (22,400m²) Durra roof and ceiling system created an acoustic envelope to block out the noise.
The prefinished Durra Panels was installed using the Durra Lifting Fame, providing a practical, efficient and above all safe work methodology for the builders. Large modules of Durra Panel and Durra Steel Sections were assembled on ground in a state of readiness for the completion of structural steel and then crane hoisted onto the structure using the Durra Lifting Frame.
