Vive La Renovation won the Regional Supreme Winner in the Bunnings Renovation Over $1 Million Category. This project featured a significant renovation with a reroof and a large amount of custom sheetmetal.
The existing roof was replaced over two levels with an Architectural Metalformers Smart Tray Standing Seam roof in Euramax Dark Grey Metallic, chosen for its modern finish and clean lines.
The original design presented a challenge for the cappings as it was curved. After discussion with the builder and owner, the outcome was to fully weld the curved cappings and powdercoat them. This involved onsite templating, workshop manufacture, multiple dryfits, powdercoating and finally install.
A masterpiece of welding had to be the 1.2mm stainless steel internal gutters including complex sumps. This was complicated but will surely stand the test of time as specified by the owners at the beginning of the project.
The design work was carried out on site as there were many complex junctions to work through.
“The major accolade has to go to Architectural Metalformers — the team on site and in the workshop were extraordinary, they really deserve so much credit!" said Builder, Marty van Der Berg. "Their onsite commitment to problem solving and overall excellence in workmanship is masterful to say the least. It was an honour working with AMF.”
It was a challenging build but the owners and Marty were very clear that this was to be a quality build and worked through numerous challenges to come out with an incredible home and a well deserved Category award.
