ARCPANEL Product Specification Benefits:
Designing a lightweight structure for the building was crucial for the project as it sits on a 75 year old wharf.

Designers were able to minimise structural roof elements by utilising the ARCPANEL Custom Panel’s industry leading spanning capabilities.

The thermal performance of the custom panel was also a key component to the building achieving its 6 Star Green Star rating.

Library at the Dock was built through a tri-partnership agreement between the City of Melbourne, Places Victoria and Lend Lease.
