    Judge's Comments:

    Timber has been used extensively on the interiors to this new retail centre. Various timber species have been used in different areas of the centre, namely:-

     The mall – atrium screens – western red cedar

    • Decorative void columns and balustrades – Victorian ash
    • Mall bridges and the cutting stair – jarrah hardwood flooring
    • Level 1 food court – ceiling – pine plywood from Chile
      Joinery – American oak and blackbutt hardwood
    • Level 1 Keira Street pedestrian bridge – jarrah hardwood flooring

    The use of various Australian and overseas species of timber has created a very warm ambience with varied hues throughout the centre. The workmanship by the tradesmen engaged by Hansen Yuncken to install the interiors is excellent and a tribute to the professionalism and craftsmanship of the site management team and their installers. This new retail centre in Wollongong is a worthy winner of the Best Use of Timber 2015 award.
