THERMOMASS chosen for Southern Cross Rail Yard
The Yardmaster's Building

The Yardmaster's Building is a multi-use facility for the various workers and operations associated with the Southern Cross Rail Yard. The extreme exposure of the building renders it highly visible from a number of vantages.

A double skin precast concrete system was used and insulated using the THERMOMASS Building Insulation System. The panel system required multiple processes not attempted before and provided enormous value in terms of the buildings aesthetic and thermal performance.

The internal layouts are simple and partitioned. Internally the building is robust and matter of fact, measured without appearing frugal. The building was carefully cost managed. Panel sizes geared towards optimizing production and minimizing energy. Our highly energy efficient THERMOMASS sandwich wall system, with non-conductive composite connectors, eliminates thermal transfer between the inside and outside concrete layers.

Materials were chosen for their robustness - maintenance in this environment comes at too high a price. Walls built with the THERMOMASS Building Insulation System are among the most durable in the construction industry. Two sturdy layers of concrete sandwich a highly energy-efficient layer of insulation, creating a wall that is incredibly durable and easy to maintain.

The THERMOMASS Building Insulation System offers a wide variety of finishes ranging from natural concrete to intricate, decorative inlays. Within the outer 'biscuit face' a pattern was cast, the relief polished. The delicate polished patterning belies a robust and sophisticated facade that drastically minimizes energy consumption and takes sustainability seriously.
