Crocodile Hunter Lodge
Project Location: Beerwah, QLD
Architect: WD Architects
Builder: Midson Construction
Roofer: Queensland Roofworks
Arcpanel (160mm Custom Panel) curved and straight roof panels
WD Architects designed the reception building which includes indoor and outdoor fine dining, bar, private function room, 25m pool, guest amenities, and administration. The design concept is “luxury woolshed,” paying homage to the best of Australian rural vernacular within a contemporary architectural aesthetic that enhances the experience of the bushland site.
WD Architects provided the feedback below upon completion of the project:
Unique characteristics of the project: The unusual angles of the roofs especially on the foyer roofs where they are tapering. The large spans and cantilevers.
Benefits of using the Arcpanel roofing system: Build time. We had a very tight schedule and we pushed to its limits. The system really helped this. The aesthetic really suits the design with the large spans and cantilevers giving and elegant slim structure
Savings: At the time of the build there was a huge difficulty in getting LVL’s in addition to this the cost of the timber was continuing to go up. The Arcpanel reduced the amount of structure required.
Summary comment: Arcpanel was enormously helpful throughout the whole process. The end result could not have been better.
Builder Midson Construction provided the feedback below upon completion of the project:
“The ARCPANEL roof systems was a great product to use. This project was a really interesting design with some huge spans and cantilevers of over 2m in some areas. Speedy installation and all went together really well. Definitely 3 – 4 times quicker than a conventional roof.”
