Wood-Grain Castellation Cladding for Cedar College

Architects & Designer: HS Architects
Builder By: Gledhill
Installer: TC Built

Known for its high quality education and exceptional facilities, Cedars has established itself as an exquisitely modern college. Set at the base of Mt Kembla, with spectacular views of the mountain. Cedars not only are situated by gorgeous surroundings, but are continuously looking towards future developments for the college such as the new state of the art classrooms set to be unveiled in early 2023.




American Oak Finish

Establishing the colour and finish was crucial to the unique castellation design of the project. The Architect’s idea to combine sandstone with a timber-look not only added character to the façade but also softened the appearance of the building.

However, the challenges of the project was to select a product which can achieve a high quality finish matching the identity of the college. Gledhill (builder) identified ALUMATE cladding systems capable of providing a sublime finish in addition to achieving the warmth which the designer desired.
