Pasco’s Buzon Screwjacks, the patented pedestal system designed to make paving perfect, is currently being utilised for Lendlease’s latest commercial development Toorak Park in Armidale, Victoria.
Adjacent to Toorak Park and Toorak Railway Station on Orrong Road in Armadale, Lendlease is developing the 2.5 hectare Toorak Park site as a luxury residential precinct set across four leafy quarters. Due for completion in late 2017, the development is targeting young families looking to enjoy local amenities, public transport and a close proximity to the city while maintaining a relaxed suburban lifestyle.
This development will be created by Lendlease in conjunction with architects Denton Corker Marshall, interior designers Carr Design Group, and landscape designers Tract Consultants. Denton Corker Marshall is responsible for delivering the masterplan and architecture. The Carr Design Group will style the project with an aesthetic skewed toward elegance, refinement, and practicality. A recognised leader in landscape architecture in Australia, Tract Consultants will successfully deliver the seamless open spaces envisaged in the development’s original design.
Inspired by the local environment, Toorak Park represents an important and exciting undertaking for both Armadale and Melbourne as a whole. A “village within a village” where one-third of the project is dedicated to open space, featuring communal gardens and direct access to Toorak railway station and Beatty Avenue through a publicly accessible tree-lined boulevard.
In keeping with the high calibre of products being specified for the Toorak Park project, Pasco’s Buzon Screwjack Pedestals will be utilised throughout the build. De Fazio Tiling Projects were engaged to install approx 10,000m2 of 600mm x 600mm granite and bluestone pavers on Buzon Pedestals ranging from 50mm to 150mm high, on all balconies, terraces and common landscape walkways.
This patented pedestal system has been used to create raised timber and paved floor solutions on balconies, rooftop terraces, water features and outdoor areas for 30 years.
Buzon pedestals support external surfaces to allow designers to create a seamless flow between indoor and outdoor horizontal surfaces. They prevent water ponding and comply with requirements for the finished ground level to step-down and fall away from the building.
A fully adjustable and patented solution to sloping substrates, Buzon pedestals create a flat stable surface between heights of 17mm to 1.07m to conceal mechanical, electrical and plumbing services while providing easy access for maintenance of waterproof membranes.
Buzon Pedestals reduce the weight bearing loads on concrete slabs, by eliminating the need for screed and sand/cement beds for pavers and tiles, and improves structure-borne-impact noise resistance in multistorey buildings.
Buzon Pedestals has solid sustainability credentials; manufactured from 80% recycled polypropylene and 100% recyclable.
Designed, manufactured and tested in Belgium, Buzon pedestals can now add Toorak Park, Armadale to their portfolio of projects, which includes the Epworth Hospital Geelong, Royal Children’s Hospital (Melbourne), Overseas Passenger Terminal (Sydney) and Wynn Hotel and Casino resort (Las Vegas).
