Mullum Mullum Stadium is the jewel in the crown of Manningham sporting venues. Located in the Victorian suburb of Donvale, the 6,000m2 stadium is one of the largest community sporting facilities in Melbourne’s east, featuring five multi-use indoor courts and seating for up to 500 spectators.
Kingspan Facades' Evolution Axis panels provided the smooth finish and aesthetic appeal of a traditional aluminium façade with the value of insulated panels to finish the external walls of the stadium,and support the venue’s sustainable outcomes. Combined with Kingspan Facades' aluminium Shingle Rainscreen Facade in three striking shades of gold, giving the stadium tonal variation for the aesthetic that the architect wanted to achieve.
The shingles are fixed directly to the substructure with discrete stainless-steel clips and rivets, folding into interconnecting tile like shapes, creating a distinct pattern.The unique powder coated surface of the shingles delivered an economical alternative to the specified anodised finish,witha transparent single coat providing the desired aesthetic at a fraction of the cost. The fast installation time further enhanced the cost-effectiveness of the solution.
