Tall buildings present special challenges for designers, builders and contractors such as internal wind pressures which call for careful consideration and design experience at the planning stage. Fire and acoustic requirements for skyscrapers can also be more demanding than solutions for low-rise developments.
USG Boral has assisted with building design solutions for some of the world’s most iconic skyscrapers. These have been based on a wide range of materials, from panellised lightweight wall systems such as IntRwall®, innovative SHEETROCK® plasterboard and compounds, as well as integrated and suspended acoustic ceiling systems.
Our Shaftwall™ System provides fire protection of up to two hours for elevator shafts, vertical ducts and other applications where installation is only possible from one side. Of lightweight construction and high acoustic performance, Shaftwall™ is also certified by Good Environmental Choice Australia (GECA).
Shaftwall™ System is installed in the world’s tallest twin towers, Kuala Lumpur’s Petronas Towers, as well as New York’s One World Trade Centre and the ‘megatall’ Burj Khalifa in Dubai. It also helped the architects of the Shanghai Centre Tower achieve their design vision of creating one of the world’s ‘greenest’ buildings.
ICONIC AUSTRALIAN SKYSCRAPERS
As a world leading building materials manufacturer and distributor, USG Boral brings product expertise and engineering experience to high-rise developments nearer to home. In fact, we developed a unique patented wall system for Melbourne’s (former) tallest building, the Eureka Tower, using panelised components, aptly naming the system EurekaWall®.
The fire- and acoustic-rated inter-tenancy walls for the 270-metre Brisbane Skytower were also designed with the help of USG Boral’s Engineering Team. A major challenge for the plastering contractor was how to design economical systems for internal walls and ceilings, while factoring high internal wind pressure into the equation.
USG Boral experts supported the contractor by pushing the performance limits of products and systems through rigorous testing and providing the engineering expertise to specify fire- and acoustic-rated systems complying with the Building Code of Australia. This also helped drive efficiencies in products and in the installation of plasterboard systems for the Brisbane Skytower project.
