KOROK® panels consist of a steel shell filled with aerated concrete. Having a solid wall provides peace of mind to occupants’ in the knowledge that they are physically separated from neighbouring dwellings.Read more
KOROK® panels offer superior mass over traditional timber and plasterboard or equivalent systems resulting in enhanced sound attenuation, particularly in the more invasive lower frequencies. This means that residents are comfortable in their own space without the intrusion of noise from other dwellings.Read more
KOROK® panels provide all the fire protection you need. You can run electrical and plumbing services on an intertenancy wall, without the need for special penetration seals around each pipe or light switch. This allows you the flexibility of placing a TV and kitchen where you want, and the ability to hang pictures on the wall without compromising the fire and acoustic resistance of the intertenancy wall.Read more
KOROK® panels are fast to install. Installation can be done by a three-man team, with no need for cranes. Made to measure means there’s no on-site waste and
because the walls can be re-positioned or recycled, it’s a sustainable way of building.
Air Traffic Control Tower
No, your eyes aren't playing tricks on you. This is what the new air traffic control tower at Wellington airport looks like.
In August 2018 Wellington airport got a new traffic control tower, to support the more than 97,000 flights that arrive and depart Wellington Airport each year.
Built to meet 100 per cent of the building code for a structure of its importance level, the tower is one of New Zealand’s safest buildings. Thirteen base isolators have been installed within its foundations to provide a high level of resilience against earthquakes.
The tower is 32 metres above ground level, giving the controllers working in the tower panoramic views across the airfield.
Tūranga, Christchurch Library
Christchurch Central Library closed on the 22nd February 2011. This was the day of the Christchurch earthquake which killed 185 people.
Tūranga is the main public library in Christchurch, New Zealand. It opened in October 2018 and replaced the nearby Christchurch Central Library that was closed on the day of the 2011 Christchurch earthquake.
The replacement library was designed by both Architectus, a New Zealand architecture firm, and Schmidt Hammer Lassen, an award-winning Danish architecture firm. The building's design is inspired by the golden hues reflected upon the Port Hills, which are an important part in Christchurch's cityscape.
Hoyts Cinema Complex
A great new multiplex cinema coming in South Auckland. Ever wondered why you can't hear the movie playing on the screen next to yours?
Ormiston Hoyts Cinema Complex is part of a $200 million shopping mall being built in Ormiston, a new town in the south Auckland suburb of Flat Bush. The cinema will have eight theatres.
Theatre walls are made from a double layer of 78mm KOROK® panels with a large gap in between and acoustic batts to prevent sound travelling.
