Commonwealth Bank Place at Darling Quarter in Sydney has installed metal ceilings from SAS International throughout.

The former Sega World site – now known as Darling Quarter – comprises of two low-rise, campus style commercial offices of eight-storeys (North and South), which houses more than 6,500 staff across 58,000 square meters of flexible working space.

Both North and South buildings have central atriums, delivering natural light, and chilled beam air-conditioning. SAS International’s perforated metal ceiling panels were installed throughout the buildings to help achieve correct air flow from the chilled beams. Non-perforated SAS205 panels are installed in the corridors.

The South building presented a particular design challenge: to fit with curved floorplate bespoke oversize panels were manufactured by SAS International. These were installed along with System 320 trapezoidal panels to overcome the change of direction required in the ceiling plane and to take up the curve.
