Throwback project: Monash University Logan Hall external facade

It doesn’t feel like that long ago we were in the factory installing this digitally printed white ink graphic onto the glass panels for the Facade of the Logan Hall Residents building at Monash University in Clayton - yet here we are are reflecting on this amazing project and it’s how hard it is to miss when you pass by it.

This project involved many hours of planning and testing to ensure the longevity of this digital print as the applicated film was to be encased in each double glazed unit as it was being installed by crane to the facade of the building.

Working closely with the construction team we were able to ensure that the timeline allowed for adequate drying time between the wet application of film and onsite installation of glass that would trap the film - as well as any residual moisture that wasn’t allowed to dry fully. As some may well be aware, trapped moisture within a double glazed unit can result in unwanted haze or fogging which is exactly what we were trying to avoid.

While this style of application has it’s risks and it’s not our preferred method of installation, it did achieve the exact look that the designers and architects were trying to achieve and the sheer scale of impact the design has as you pass it on one of the main drives of the Clayton campus is outstanding.

So if you have a seemingly un-achievable installation or you simply want to bring some personality and wow-factor to the front of your business, be sure to contact us for a free measure and quote!
