Architectural Cladding Project – Essendon Footbal Club Training Facility


Essendon’s long-time training and administration facilities were located at Windy Hill. They had become dated in comparison to other teams in the AFL and were also being shared with other groups including the Essendon Cricket Club and the local bowling club. There was little scope for the redevelopment of Windy Hill given its physical and land-use constraints.

The need had arisen to establish a new sporting and community facility for the ‘Bombers’. This project provided the opportunity to create a very different and inspiring training facility for the Essendon Football Club. It was a triumph of lateral thinking and problem solving. We’re very proud of our work in progress!

Walling and Cladding Materials included: COLORBOND® steel metal cladding and roofing

The metal cladding and roofing supplied provided a beautiful design option for the exterior facade of the training facility. Manufactured to Australian Standards (AS1397 and AS/NZS 2728) and tested in Australian conditions over the last 50 years, the following benefits were delivered:

  1. The cladding and roofing products are manufactured to meet relevant Australian Standards, ensuring strict adherence to the required grade and strength.

  2. The base of the products are then coated in BlueScope’s industry leading metallic coating incorporating Activate® technology*, to provide enhanced corrosion resistance.

  3. A thin pretreatment layer is applied to optimise the adhesion of further coatings.

  4. A corrosion inhibitive primer is baked onto the surface.

  5. A topcoat of specially developed, exterior grade paint is baked on to provide resistance to chipping, flaking and blistering and to ensure the finish retains its look for longer.

Architectural Cladding Suppliers are proud to be associated with BlueScope Steel using COLORBOND® steel in our key projects. Fifty years of research and development has created a range of technologies that give COLORBOND® steel its long lasting performance when subjected to Australian weather conditions.
