Swisspearl High Density Fibre Cement Cladding meets unique and stringent criteria for Wickham Community Hub Project

Swisspearl ® high density fibre cement cladding is the chosen facade material for the new and contemporary Wickham Community Hub in Karratha.  The beautifully designed Community Hub is a welcomed shared space, providing locals with a flexible and functional multi use facility.  Meeting the unique and stringent design criteria, Swisspearl was the ideal cladding choice for the challenging conditions in the remote north of Western Australia.

Based in the highest wind region in Australia (Category D), Swisspearl was the obvious choice to ensure long term performance in the harsh Wickham environment.   In addition to the performance in cyclonic conditions, the excellent impact resistance, low maintenance and high UV performance of Swisspearl offered a comfortable solution to a complex design.   Swisspearl is a fire resistant cladding, meeting NCC fire requirements for non-combustibility.

Along with satisfying the performance requirements, the local HVG Facades team worked with designers to achieve 11 custom colours, ensuring the striking aesthetics of the project could be achieved.

To facilitate smooth supply and install in such a remote region, over 2000 individual cut to size panels were supplied direct from the factory in Switzerland, individually numbered and packed per elevation.

Well underway, the project is anticipated to be complete end of 2018.
