THE UNIVERSITY OF MELBOURNE – WILSON HALL

PROJECT COMPLETED

January 2015

PROJECT DESCRIPTION

Replacement of the bespoke timber veneer ceiling panels in the heritage-listed ceremonial hall at the University of Melbourne. A high level of quality management and coordination was involved to ensure prior testing, off-site manufacturing to replicate the 29 unique 1950’s panels to match existing veneer grain, individual colours, sizes and curve radius’s.

The installation was performed on a tight deadline during University holidays and due to access and floor loading constraints, a spider lift machine was used to reach the 19 meter high ceiling.
