Project Details

Project Name Vincent Fire Station
Architect Oldfield Knott Architects
Location Perth, WA
Product ExoTec Panel and System
Timeline Jan 2017-Mar 2018

The $19 million structure was built to provide emergency services to Perth’s flourishing population. The street-facing façade has beautiful lines and simple shapes making it a dramatic feature. This unique finish was achieved by utilizing Bisschops Panel cladding with James Hardie ExoTecfaçade panel and fixing the system as its substrate.

The build commenced in January of 2017; The turnaround had to be done quickly because the fire station is an integral part of the Perth community. Several key requirements for the exterior façade cladding material needed to be met:

  • Capacity to withstand exposure to elements in a public space
  • Ease of installation
  • Ease of maintenance
  • High-quality appearance

Express jointed cladding system Bisschops Panel with James Hardie ExoTec™ offered a solution that met all these requirements along with others such as its 15-year warranty, and graffiti resistance. The high quality, easy installation product also did not come at the cost of style thanks to the selection of sizes and thicknesses available with the option for custom cutting for optimal visual impact, creating a clean stylish finish that is resilient to the harshest of climates.

James Hardie® fiber cement products are fire-resistant and suitable for use in applications where non-combustible materials are required in accordance with Deemed-to-Satisfy Provisions C1.9 (e) of the NCC, Building Code of Australia Volume One Amendment 1.
