Marketing Suite by Mikano
This project allowed the clients to go from concept to development in 8 weeks.
The client wanted to move away from the standard available options for marketing suites such as traditional temporary buildings and porta cabins. Mikano were commissioned to design and build a Marketing Suite for a new Woodside Development.
The marketing suite needed to be designed constructed and fully functional in the minimum amount of time. The requirements of Capricorn homes were that the unit could be dismantled and move to a further projected 5 sites. The unit was fully built offsite and engineered to split down the middle into two separate sections. The façade system was adapted so for each new development a façade change could take place to match the theme or particular brand colours of the new development.This ensured a sustainable product that had an extended life span not only in its method of construction but in its future applications. It was installed and ready for use within 4 days of arriving on site.
A full modular method combining offsite construction. Structural frame work is a cold rolled system, outer rain screen facade is a mixture of Trespa panels and western red cedar cladding. Glazed window panels with a Smart systems powder coated aluminium window and door frame. The roof is a single ply membrane with an up stand and concealed rainwater outlets and down pipes.
The building came complete with lifting eyes for easy re-positioning and ongoing use.
