UNITING HERITAGE & INNOVATION

A dramatic new building in a Sydney parish exploits the benefits of contemporary construction materials and techniques while respecting the site’s heritage and neighbourhood character.

A two-storey atrium envelops the back of the historic chapel. The new structure accommodates a 250-seat worship centre, hall and meeting rooms and links to the former residence, now administration hub.

The main cladding, Austral Facades™ Terraçade™ terracotta facade system, visually links the new building with the heritage buildings and the Federation-era neighbourhood.

The structure uses precast concrete panels, manufactured, prefinished and installed by Austral Precast. Austral Bricks Bowral® Simmental Silver dry-pressed bricks also feature in this project.

The staged installation of the concrete panels was constrained by the site and its suburban location. “There were a few very big lifts because of the tight site access,” says builder Adam Donnelly. “The final product was finished to a high standard and the parishioners are ecstatic,” commends Rev. Michael Thomas.
