Sheraton on the Park Hotel - Sydney

Tuesday, September 26, 2017

Head Contractor:  Shape Group

Architect: JPDC

Hotel Manager: Starwood Hotels

Scope of works: Refurbishment of 595 hotel rooms by Shape Group. Altro Australia were the preferred supplier chosen by Starwood Hotels to replace existing bi-parting cavity sliding doors with a reliable heavy duty track system with a soft closing mechanism to prevent doors slamming. The Altro EKU Swiss cavity sliding carriage system was the obvious choice as it has the added advantage of a quick release/install feature which was paramount in a hotel environment where doors are subject to unforgiving heavy use every day. The ability to install or dismantle the door for maintainance so quickly was the draw-card.


Southpoint Emporium Hotel - South Brisbane

Monday, August 14, 2017

Project: Southpoint Emporium Hotel - South Brisbane

Builder: Hutchinson Builders

Architect: Jackson Teece

Developer: Anthony John Group

Project description:

South Bank’s last remaining development site – located on Grey Street, between Vulture and Tribune Streets – will soon be one of the largest mixed-use, transport-oriented development (TOD) projects in Queensland and home to Brisbane’s second luxury boutique Emporium Hotel.

Southpoint will also feature beautifully appointed one, two and three bedroom luxury apartments and A-Grade commercial office space. The residential and hotel building will be linked by a ground-level pedestrian plaza that will incorporate convenience shopping, wine bars, cafes and restaurants around heritage-listed Collins Place, as well as an upgraded South Bank train station.

  Altro Australia worked closely with the Builder and subcontractor to help create the upmarket finish required by the developer. Altro's proprietary Euro Jamb shadowline door jamb and Euro Cav Ultima cavity sliding door system were used in conjunction with our new SL95 Euro Skirt system to create a stunning, fuss free shadowline detail with perfectly straight lines. Euro Jamb shadowline door jambs and cavity sliders used along with the SL95 shadowline skirting system is the simplest way to produce that highly sought after shadowline detail with straight lines and less trades and onsite work required.

Australia 108 - Southbank

Wednesday, July 12, 2017

Developer:  World Class Land

Builder:  Brookfield Multiplex

Architect:  Fender Katsalidis

Project description:

Australia 108 is a highly sculptural residential tower unlike any other in Australia. Its slender form is highlighted at the Cloud Residences levels by a golden starburst expression and then morphs into a curvaceous profile against the sky. The starburst which contains the resident facilities is inspired by the Commonwealth Star on the Australian flag and is an obvious celebration of the sense of community within the building.

Altro Building Systems have been awarded the contract to supply all cavity sliders and doors to this iconic project. Euro Cav Ultima cavity sliders were voted in by the development, architectural and building team for its durability and innovative carriage system concept developed by Swiss engineers. The Altro Swiss carriage system specially developed for the Euro Cav Ultima cavity sliding door system has a unique installation advantage enabling the door to be installed inside the cavity slider in half the amount of time of any other cavity sliding door system. It is also extremely serviceable due to the door being removed just as easily as the installation process. A soft closing function can also be installed or even retro fitted at a later stage. All flush panel doors are also being supplied to suit, complete with cutouts for concealed carriages and floor guides.


Latrobe Tower - Melbourne

Monday, July 10, 2017

Builder: Hickory Group

Developer:  Longriver Investments

Architect: Rothelowman

Project description:  The Latrobe Tower at 323 Latrobe street Melbourne consists of 205 apartments over 42 levels.


The building aesthetic draws from the rich art and music culture, visibly present in the re-claimed lane ways, south of the subject site. This history of music inspires the resulting facades, establishing rhythm and scale as a backdrop to this valuable precinct. 

Altro Building Systems supplied all custom made Euro Cav Ultima cavity sliders and aluminum glazed doors to all apartments. A strong emphasis was on durability and sustainability and Altro cavity sliders were used due to the full aluminium construction. Transfer of light from from room to room was needed and the Altro Vetro doors were used in conjunction with translucent glass infill panels for the spread of natural light. Altro Vetro aluminium doors have been pre machined in our factory for carriages and and bottom floor guides and are specially designed to fit the Euro cavity sliding door system with the advantage of less labour on site.
