Moe Rail Precinct Revitalisation Project

Tapered to perfection

The Project

A beacon of light in the small Gippsland town of Moe, the Rail Precinct Revitalisation Project by FJMT Architects has created a beautifully designed urban space. The $14 million dollar project has provided the town with a library, council meeting rooms, community spaces and a café.

Contractor:
Total Seal Waterproofing
Application:
Soffit, wall and roof
The contemporary design aimed to provide a functional, energy efficient space that would combine community buildings and the Moe train lines into a single central hub. With a 1980 m2 footprint, the project was able to deliver a vibrant, dynamic and attractive community center for all Moe residents to enjoy.  
 
“Our design required a very low profile roof, along with very high specification insulation and building sealing. We workshopped options with Kingspan Insulation and Sika Membranes, to achieve a combined system that met high level design requirements”, commented FJMT architect, Louise Goodman.
 
Kingspan’s Therma TT47 Tapered Roofing System was installed by contractors Total Seal Waterproofing and delivered a tapered roofing system that met the requirements of the low profile roof. On top of the product, gravel roof areas were added to add to the aesthetic and give the building its unique and identifiable look.

Kingspan Insulation met with FJMT during the design and documentation phases of the project to provide samples and to assist with drawing up the specifications.
 
“Kingspan provided prompt and direct assistance on the development of the project, providing a high level of technical assistance, including calculations, design and documentation drawings for the tapered insulation, the green roof, and across the gravel roof areas”, continued Goodman.
Helping the building achieve a 6 Star Green Star rating, Kingspan’s Kooltherm K12 Framing Board and Kooltherm K10 Soffit Board were also specified. Contractors South City Plaster used the products on the building's wall and soffits respectively.
 
 “Kingspan Insulation were keen to be involved in innovative design outcomes, and displayed a positive can-do attitude, to the challenges posed,” finished Goodman.
