Cultural & Tourism · VIC
The Centre has reinstated seven hectares of habitat for Australia’s largest colony of Little Penguins.
The colour Cosmic® in Metallic finish was chosen for the roofing because of its neutral colour that also has depth and complements the penguins as they emerge glistening from the ocean.
LYSAGHT KLIP-LOK 700 HI-STRENGTH® profile was selected for the roofing because of its long runs and concealed fixings, which help minimise the number of penetrations, making it strong and weathertight. Terroir says the profile also expedited the building program completion target ahead of the penguin breeding season because it could be quickly erected and provide shelter for other trades working underneath.
