One the Esplanade
The first of the office high-rise buildings has finally opened in the Elizabeth Quay riverside complex, here in Perth. With its newly-built residential towers as well as Australia’s first Ritz Carlton Hotel, Elizabeth Quay is starting to become a thriving area with its restaurants & bars arranged around the Swan River’s newest man-made inlet.
Multiplex oversaw the construction of Chevron’s new hub, located at 1 The Esplanade, which has been Dual’s flagship project for most of 2022, with over three hundred lift entrances, many manufactured and installed using champagne satin stainless steel.
Our engraving department oversaw works on twenty car operating panels as well as various landing operating & indication panels. Dual also supplied landing ID indicators across the entire tower.
The majority of the Schindler lift cars were fitted out with a combination of Carrara stone tiles and grey smoked mirrored walls, complimenting the black stain stainless steel dropped ceilings and carbon grey stone floors, with champagne stainless steel swing jamb-style front walls adding colour to the seventeen interiors.
The gymnasium and childcare interiors incorporated a blend of walnut wood grain laminates with clear silver mirrors, once again using black satin stainless steel for the ceilings and carbon grey stone flooring but were offset with satin stainless steel car operating panels and front walls.
240 St Georges Terrace
OTIS’s most recent major modernization project has been located at 240 St Georges Terrace.
Beginning early 2022, Dual were tasked with removing the existing interiors & front walls, manufacturing and installing electro-static painted swing-jamb style new front walls with car operating panels incorporated into them, as well as mirror polished bronze stainless steel side wall COPs.
The internal finishes incorporated a mix of travertine stone with vertical bronze glass mirrors and downwardly illuminated black powder coated handrails.
A mirror polished bronze stainless steel suspended ceiling was enhanced with mini-LED warm white downlights and indirect lighting to warm the recessed area of the car roof.
Large format dark grey tiles enhanced the sophistication of the interior to produce one of our favorite finishes to date.
QV1 – 250 St Georges Terrace
2020 saw Dual engage with Schindler to upgrade and modernize the lift cars and landing fixtures at the forty-three story QV1 on St Georges Terrace. With twenty-one lifts comprising of eighteen passenger lifts, two shuttle lifts and a goods lift, Dual were able to mass produce many of the components required during the manufacture and assembly of the interiors.
Dark Fior De Bosco Italian-sourced marble was backed with aluminum honeycomb to alleviate any weight issues that may have been created and each panel was edged with custom-made and hand polished stainless-steel trims.
The mirror polished stainless steel suspended ceiling incorporated a one-way mirrored panel, allowing the client to mask a hidden camera should the necessity arise at a later date. Matte black powder coated baffles surrounded three sides of the ceiling to create a diffused wall wash lighting effect to enhance the under-wall panel lighting, which sent a halo effect around the bottom edge of the interior.
Mirror polished swing-jamb front wall car operating panels are integrated with Schindler’s destination control system giving it a streamline look with minimal buttons.
Lobby upgrades comprised of black colour back glass, incorporating Schindler’s port control system, as well as illuminated acrylic lift identification lettering.
METRONET is the crown jewel in Perth’s bid to improve travel for our ever-growing population. With twenty-three new stations being constructed and over seventy kilometres of new track being laid, it is the Australian Government & Government of Western Australia’s largest single investment in public transport that the city has ever seen.
Dual are extremely proud to be involved in such a prestigious project with both Schindler Lifts Australia Pty Limited and TK Elevator, with our Osborne Park factory the hub for the manufacturing of over forty complete lift car structures & interiors as well as car & landing doors, fixtures, door frames and landing button bollards.
From design to manufacture, Dual have been pivotal in the construction of these lift cars, using 316 marine grade stainless steel framework, 316 grade stainless steel outer cladding, Rimex 316 grade 5WL patterned stainless steel for the interiors, 10.38mm laminated clear glass windows with anti-graffiti film, vandal resistant lighting as well as 5mm aluminum checker flooring which is fully welded to protect the car structure.
Once completed these lifts are dismantled before being delivered to site to be rebuilt by Schindler’s and/or TK’s skilled installer teams. Dual then follow in to complete the installation of the interior walls & ceilings, glass panels & handrails.
Working to an extremely tight timeline, Dual have been able to keep up with the supply of all components to the project to ensure Schindler are able to maintain that deadlines are met with Public Transport Authority and their respective stakeholders.
The below video shows the construction of a lift car structure, by one of Dual’s talented installers, Matthew Gray.
Mia Yellagonga (Capital Square Tower 1)
Capital Square Tower 1 was the first of three buildings constructed on the Old Emu Brewery site on Mounts Bay Road in Perth, Western Australia. The building has become the Perth headquarters for Woodside Energy Limited and offers connected technology, flexible meeting spaces and extensive wellness facilities.
The project received a 6-Star Green Star Office Design & As Built rating from the Green Building Council Australia and was the first high-rise tower to achieve this in Western Australia.
Multiplex also constructed a four-storey podium building which includes world-class employee facilities for Woodside as well as the hotel’s premium gymnasium and pool facilities.
Schindler were engaged to oversee the lifts across Tower 1 and its podium building as well as for Towers 2 & 3 (currently under construction).
Dual were involved in the manufacture and installation of over thirty lift car interiors across Towers 1 & 2, as well as the podium building. The interiors mainly consisted of ‘Frothing Mocha’ colour back glass, full height clear silver mirrors, mirror polished stainless steel perforated ceiling panels and Rimex linen stainless steel hinged front walls incorporating the car operating panels.
The ground floor door frames were enhanced by backlit transoms manufactured using Rimex champagne linen and champagne pearl stainless steel. With over three hundred and forty lift entrances installed in total across the project, Dual ensured they were kept busy during 2017-18 (Tower 1) and 2020 (Tower 2), with Capital Square running alongside other project commitments.
Murdoch University’s New Academic Building Boola Katitjin has set a global benchmark for sustainability and innovative teaching technology.
Boola Katitjin, which translates to “lots of learning” in Noongar, will amplify the Murdoch experience with new places to learn, study and socialise, while reflecting the University’s commitment to both in-person and online learning.
In an Australian first, students at Murdoch University will be able to see, talk and collaborate with classmates anywhere in the world via Technology Enabled Learning (TEL) desks installed at its new Boola Katitjin building.
Schindler Lifts Australia won the contract for the supply and installation of four lifts, with Dual awarded the works to manufacture and install the interiors. Original hand-painted aboriginal artworks were enlarged and printed in high resolution on to laminated digi-glass to create stunning visual displays in the four lifts, with images depicting flora, marsupials, insects and birds. From our drawing department, through the workshop and to installation, we saw the striking vision & concept of these interiors come to fruition.
Dual also manufactured and installed a number of stainless-steel door frames and fixtures including landing operating and indication panels, as well as car operating panels with Opal High Definition 15.6” screens.
Sustainability features at Murdoch NAB:
- 450kw solar panel array, estimated to produce over 60% of the building’s operational energy requirements at peak conditions
- Active design features such as raised access floor systems with HVAC from below, energy efficient LED lighting used throughout with occupancy detection and natural lighting detection devices
- Stormwater harvesting tank for reuse back in the building for grey water uses. Excess stormwater collection will recharge groundwater through a large infiltration tank
- Landscaping plans allow for more than 26,000 native plants to be installed around the building
King Edward Memorial Hospital
King Edward Memorial Hospital for Women (KEMH) is located in the suburb of Subiaco, in Perth, Western Australia. It is the state’s largest maternity hospital and the only referral centre for complex pregnancies. The hospital has operated since 1916 and has undergone many upgrades and modernizations over the years and is now home to the state’s Women and Newborn Health Service, as part of the North Metropolitan Health Service.
Dual were enlisted by TK Elevator to assist with the lift upgrades in Blocks A & B, working on a total of eight lifts, seven of which were passenger, and one a goods lift. Out came the tired looking blue laminate wall panels, perspex diffused light boxes hiding old-style fluorescent battens and dated car operating panels with dot matrix screens.
Each of the original timber car shells were dismantled and replaced with folded galvanised steel wall panels and a new marine ply timber roof. The car interiors consist of Rimex 5WL BA front and lower walls & bump panels, whilst the upper wall sections are decorated in Dulux Hogs Bristle toughened colour back glass and laminated clear silver mirrors, to lighten & brighten the feel of the interior. The Rimex 5WL BA ceiling was fitted with new LED downlights, which were colour corrected for cyanosis observation. The central ceiling panel was vinyl wrapped with an original custom Aboriginal artwork piece.
New hinged car operating panels were installed incorporating Pixel 15.6” Opal Plus screens, Dewhurst US95-AM anti-microbial dual illuminated buttons and custom directory engraving. A separate information display panel was fitted with a Pixel Opal 21.5” HD screen, highlighting ongoing hospital news and informing patrons of things of interest.
Custom stainless steel door frames were fitted on various lift entrances, while some of the existing were given a fresh lease of life with a hand finish and clean. Dual also provided new car fan kits, guarding for the motor rooms and top of car rail kits.
