Loreto College

The newly completed $9 million Mary’s Mount Centre at Loreto College, Ballarat, is a state-of-the-art performing arts facility set within a historic school precinct.

The Project

Mary’s Mount Centre at Loreto College, designed by architectural firm Gray Puksand and built by SJ Weir, features a 500-seat auditorium, multimedia laboratory as well as spacious music and dance studios.

With its proximity to heritage buildings, the Centre is an example of modest, respectful design that coexists harmoniously with heritage structures, including the adjacent school chapel.

High performance insulation

High performance insulation is a necessity at the school, where winter temperatures frequently fall several degrees below zero and summer time temperatures can soar well above 40 degrees Celsius. This is why the Exsulite-Kooltherm Thermal Façade System by Dulux AcraTex was specified.

Exsulite-Kooltherm Thermal Façade System

The Exsulite-Kooltherm Thermal Façade System by Dulux AcraTex incorporates the Kooltherm K5 External Wall Board. This unique CodeMark-certified façade system, noted for its visual impact and developed jointly by Kingspan and Dulux AcraTex, is a masterpiece of ‘two-in-one’ multifunctionality. Not only does the walling of the façade provide superb thermal insulation, but its slimline profile also maximises functional interior space.

Superior thermal performance

Kingspan Kooltherm K12 Framing Board was also specified due to its superior thermal performance. Installed behind the exterior panelling of the centre, Kooltherm K12 Framing Board is suitable for a variety of wall applications, whether in a clip-and-channel concrete wall installation or in a framed wall system.
