About the project

Global clearing house ABN AMRO has a reputation as a leading securities provider. The New South Wales team recently moved into a new commercial office, the Yello Centre, and were looking for a fitout that reflected the level professionalism and attention to detail they offer their clients. Importantly, they needed a quality product that would realise the high-end vision of their architect.


The Austratus Difference

Truly a team effort, Austratus worked with head contractor Intrec and installer Parsh Powers to bring the specified design to life – feature timber ceilings that would contrast nicely with the other natural materials like concrete and brick. Austratus Fin Profile in Hemlock was chosen, in almond and black, for feature ceilings in the lobby, kitchen, reception and waiting room areas, adding drama and elegance to the space.

Unlike other installations this project had an added complexity: the architect’s specifications for the ceiling battens to run at a 30 degree angle to the walls. We showed off our ability to be flexible and fast, creating a custom solution to meet this specification, in a matter of weeks. An added benefit of Austratus is its acoustic performance, and the sustainable qualities of Hemlock timber, which make this an eco-friendly project.

The owners and architects were very happy with the overall look and feel, while the installers were amazed at how fast, cost effective and easy to work with Austratus was. Read their testimonial below!

Product Spotlight

The Austratus Fin Profile is your choice for achieving extra depth and dimension. The classic square shape adds dynamic shadows to your space and allows your creative flair to truly stand out. Use curved or straight, you can create interest any way you choose. And of course, natural timber is a high performer when it comes to acoustic absorption – perfect for busy and private spaces.

Testimonial from Installer:

"It was a pleasure dealing with the Austratus team – from estimating to delivery -they helped us all the way, which made a complex project just that little bit easier. Their installation system was refreshingly easy to work with and adapt for the specific project. The fact that they were able to meet all the architects’ requirements regarding the finishes, whilst delivering the materials to meet the program would definitely make me want to recommend them as an alternative to any specified ceiling system on future projects. I look forward to doing more projects with Austratus."
