The Ozone Panel system is a load bearing precast structural insulated panel (SIP) that can be used for exterior structural walls and interior walls. The panel is comprised of FSC certified OSB3 board and a unique structural Polyisocyanurate foam. Amazingly, the accommodation requires no A/C or heating.
To put the project in perspective, the average house uses approximately 180 square metres of Ozone Panel; this particular project has over 5,500 square metres.
Peter Horigan, General Manager of Ozone Panel explains; “This project required an extremely large amount of work and detailing to prepare the panels. There are arches, lots of columns, and we had to build in around lots and lots of steel and penetrations.”
In the bedrooms there isn’t the need for any heating or cooling. They are completely reliant on the properties of the panels to provide a comfortable temperature. This is a significant cost saving as Peter Stack, the Project Co-coordinator for Contract Control explains; “It would obviously be a huge cost if you had to put a reverse cycle system in every one of the 180 bedrooms.”■
