Wesbeam have been extremely helpful in offering their support to the engineering process, often providing crucial information to our consultant team. This kind of partnership approach to the documentation and engineering process makes all the difference in forging the progress needed on a project such as this. Where some suppliers interest in their product finishes at the distributor, Wesbeam have the foresight to see that the downstream activity that their product undergoes is not only relevant to their business but critical. In doing so Wesbeam are securing the future of timber in WA through the encouragement of the use of not only their products but the overall use of timber and other alternative materials in the construction process. We look forward to many more projects involving Wesbeam in the future.’ said Stuart.
The DeHavilland Apartments showcases an interior design that is centred around an industrial theme with black accents throughout. The exposed services such as ducting are offset by crisp clean white surfaces that are expressed by black fixtures such as door handles, light fittings and electrical points.
The kitchens are either a timber panel with black tops and black accessories or a black panel with concrete style tops with black accessories. The bathrooms will have a marble effect wall tile with black accessories and all tiled floors will be in a concrete style finish throughout. The continuity of fixtures and finishes throughout the building reflect its ‘warehouse / industrial’ style. Industrial style art and interior design finishes to common areas to complete a boutique hotel feeling.
The building exterior will be made up of a combination of standing seam sheet steel, oxidised steel paint finish and oxidised steel accent elements such as mesh screening. The laneway frontage will have landscaping and lighting to make the area more accessible and connect the building with the community.
