Located in Mangere, Auckland, the new Sistema Manufacturing Facility features 51,500m² of manufacturing, storage and distribution areas and 3,500m² of corporate office space. The state-of-the-art facility designed by Woodhams Meikle Zhan Architects and built by Haydn & Rollett, won the Supreme Award at the 2017 Property Council awards.
For the roof of the building, Haydn & Rollett were assisted by Steel Roofing who helped reduce costs and project time by streamlining the roof design and ensuring smooth installation of the 55,000m² building’s roof. Roofing Industries were contracted to supply a combination of Maxispan high rib roofing and Multirib cladding, using Colorcote Zinacore X pre-painted steel in 'Pacific White'.
A strong and aesthetically pleasing high rib roofing and cladding profile, Maxispan provides an attractive and durable roof for the facility. The practical design of the profile also aided the construction programme. “The Maxispan high rib roofing and cladding profile provides significant spanning advantages with low pitch and wide cover,” explains Paul Ross, Roofing Industries. “This contributed to reducing installation time.”
Complementing the Maxispan profile, the use of Colorcote Zinacore X ensures an attractive and long-lasting finish for the roof. “Zinacore X has excellent colour and gloss retention,” explains Paul. “This makes it ideal for industrial sites where there is a high risk of deterioration from corrosive elements in the environment.”
In addition to the roofing, Roofing Industries’ Multirib metal wall cladding was also specified for large sections of the building.
This effective combination of Roofing Industries’ roofing and cladding systems has resulted in a durable and attractive building that will accommodate Sistema’s growth, well into the future.
