Aversatile roofing and cladding material was required for the project's complex exterior.

Installation company Copperform was asked by Sunland to install pre-weathered New Generation VM Zinc on feature areas of the facade, says general manager Gavin Appleby.

"The developer selected the product for its up-market finish and enduring strength," says Appleby. "Another attraction was the zinc's malleability, which worked well with the exterior's many curves and varied use of panelling."

A standing seam cladding style was chosen, in an environmentally friendly quartz finish.

"Installation was straight forward, due to the user-friendly nature of the zinc. Suited to most roof pitches and for straight, curved, and folded forms, it provided complete freedom of expression."
