123 Bealey Backpackers Hostel
Tricon was engaged to construct the two-level, 300 bed Bealey Backpackers Hostel and also undertook the construction of the subfloor which involved scarfing the timber piles and installing the bearers.
The structure consisted of cross laminated timber (CLT) floors and walls along with GLULAM/ LVL columns and beams, with only 2 PFC’s being used in the entire project. Around 44 thousand spax screws were used to complete the build. Because much of the CLT was left exposed, care was taken to protect the visible surfaces and oversized skirtings were used to cover the fixings. In the Atrium, dado borders were used to cover junctions between the floor and walls.
