GC Sports Leisure CentreAthletes and visitors to the Gold Coast Sports and Leisure Centre will benefit from the installation of approximately three hundred (300) glass and aluminium louvres for both ventilation and smoke control protection.

Commercial louvre/window-design and automation specialist, EBSA, is a family business based in Brisbane that was selected by builder, Hansen Yuncken, to install this technology.

One of the most important features of the EBSA architectural glass louvres is their capacity to provide an excellent ventilation system and more importantly, to form an integral part of a commercial smoke exhaust system.

Northern Beaches Christian School 05WMK Architecture and a team of consultants have met an ambitious challenge set by a school principal to reinvent the traditional education building design and, in the process, created a highly sophisticated mixed-mode building ventilation strategy.

Stephen Harris, principal of The Northern Beaches Christian School (NBCS) in Sydney, has led the vision for the school's new building works since day dot, requesting from the very beginning that the architect's concept for their new admin, science and student services building align with the school's collaborative and innovative learning paradigm.

Hazel Glen Child and Family Centre uses a vibrant patchwork of glazed bricks, along with various timbers to create a welcoming family centre.

This state-of-the-art building consists of four childcare rooms, maternal and child health consulting suites, various sized community rooms and a central flexible community gathering space. Located in the heart of the Plenty River Valley, the centre references the winding Plenty River in its meandering walls and verandah lines and with metaphorical flows and eddies through the central space, while the roofline responds to the horizon line of the distant Kinglake Ranges.

The Global Change Institute at the University of Queensland makes a significant shift from thinking of buildings as consumers of resources to being contributors to the regeneration of the ecological and social environment. The building is designed to work with the natural environment and will operate as a zero energy and zero carbon work place.

The GCI building is not only an exemplar of sustainable practice but is home to research and collaboration into the issues around global change and their impacts on the planet. It has also provided a valuable research tool for innovative building systems and the understanding of adaptive comfort conditions in a naturally ventilated sub tropical environment.

Louvres were especially developed for this project and will be installed into both towers.

EBSA have installed and glazed the louvres into the curtain wall panels offsite, the completed curtain wall panels were then installed into the façade of the building.

This is the second successful project where EBSA has installed double glazed louvres into the curtain wall offsite and it showcases the expertise within our company. Our previous project delivered in this manner was 177 Pacific Highway (north Sydney) for Leightons.
