In an Australian first, CSR will provide prefabricated unitised rainscreen facades for the commercial and high-rise residential construction markets. Working in collaboration with New York-based company ISLAND Exterior Fabricators LLC, CSR will harness the technology developed by ISLAND which has pioneered panelised facade design for more than 15 years.
ISLAND’s panels have been installed on iconic and landmark buildings across New York City including the HL23, a 14-storey apartment block positioned along New York’s famous High Line, the National September 11 Memorial & Museum and the Gansevoort Hotels, as well as Boston University.
The large format panelised units, prefabricated with factory-installed windows and the specifiers choice of cladding enables strict control for guaranteed performance. The panels, which can be up to 12 metres in length, integrate with traditional structures such as concrete and steel and are fully customised for each project.
The system, named CSR Inclose™, has the potential to revolutionise the building and architectural design industry. From
