The Pluvia roof drainage system from Geberit was installed at the International House building located in Barangaroo, Sydney. A comprehensive urban development project in Sydney, Barangaroo is an inner-city suburb located to the west of the city centre, encompassing about 22 hectares and comprising of a mixture of offices, retail spaces, hotels, restaurants and leisure facilities.
Designed by Tzannes Architects for Lendlease, the International House is a refreshing new example of sustainable office architecture. This seven-floor timber structure is made from 2,000m³ of cross-laminated timber and 950m³ of glued laminated timber, and is the first commercial engineered timber building in Australia.
Qualified experts from Geberit trained the plumbers on site on how to correctly handle the HDPE pipes. The proven Pluvia roof drainage system ensures that the roof is reliably drained. This system is based on the principle of negative pressure, whereby maximum performance is ensured with a comparably low number of roof outlets and small pipe diameters.
The 6-Star Green Star rated building was completed in May 2017.
