Project Completion: Roocycle Upgrade for Concrete Grandstand

Parra Boroniapark_21

Moodie Outdoor Products was recently contracted by Parramatta City Council to upgrade the concrete grandstand seating at Boronia Park in Epping.

The existing concrete grandstand has been enhanced by the addition of Roocycle seating slats that curve nicely with the lines of the existing structure. Roocycle was chosen as the material of choice as it is hard wearing, long lasting, requires zero maintenance and has the added benefit of being a sustainable construction solution. By choosing Roocycle to upgrade this grandstand, approximately 1.5 tonnes of waste has been diverted from landfill.

If you can see the benefits of constructing with Roocycle and would like to explore the option of using it in your next project please do not hesitate to contact Moodie’s today to see if we can help.

Project Progress Report: Roocycle Boardwalk – Fred Hollows Reserve, Randwick

Roocycle Boardwalk Fred Hollows 2

Moodie Outdoor Products is currently undertaking the installation of a Roocycle WPC boardwalk at Fred Hollows Reserve in Randwick. Total length of the boardwalk is 70m and includes platforms,stairs and handrail to one side. The boardwalk has been designed  and engineered in accordance with Australian Standards and to meet site specific requirements.

The wood plastic composite Roocycle material has been chosen as the construction material as it provides a long service life with zero maintenance required. This makes it the ideal choice for such a construction project with the charcoal colour blending nicely into the natural bushland environment.

Roocycle is a 95% recycled material made with recycled plastic and timber waste materials. It is also 100% recyclable making it a sustainable construction material. This project alone means that 8.0 tonnes of waste material have been diverted from landfill!

Project Completion: ‘The Coal Loader’ Roocycle ET Staircase Link, Waverton

Coal Loader - 1

The Coal Loader, itself, is a former industrial site that operated from the early 1920s to the early 1990s. It functioned primarily as a transfer depot for coal from bulk carriers to smaller coal-fired vessels. The site operated for over 70 years before being decommissioned It was dedicated as public open space in 1997 and formally transferred to North Sydney Council in 2003.

Since this time, the site has been transformed into the Coal Loader Centre for Sustainability, an exciting regional community resource in Waverton.

As part of the project, a series of steps and landings were required to link Balls Head Rd and Balls Head Dr through an existing nature reserve leading up to the Coal Loader.

Roocycle ET, produced from recycled wood and plastic was the logical choice of building material. It’s structural qualities and broad range of profiles enabled the entire staircase link to be constructed from Roocycle ET. Around 4,000kgs of Roocycle ET was used to construct this project thus diverting waste that would have otherwise ended up as landfill.

All components including stringers, sub-floor structure, hand rails, treads and decking are dressed Roocycle ET.

Total length of staircase is 42m x 1.2m wide with handrails both sides.

Steps include luminescent stair nosing plus an additional galvanised hot-dipped gal pipe handrail.

Project Progress Report: Woy Woy Landfill Shelter

Woy Woy - 1

Currently under construction this shelter is built entirely from recycled wood waste and plastic, diverting  4.3 tonnes of landfill into a useful, long-lasting community facility.

It has  been designed, engineered and certified with all Roocycle ET profiles being manufactured to specific lengths minimising wasteful offcuts of material.

The shelter is designed to be an information centre looking out over the landfill operations and  will also include noticeboards made from Roocycle ET wood/plastic composite.

A colourbond roof will be installed with a water tank at the back. Be sure to keep an eye on the Moodie Outdoor Products blog to see the pictures of the completed shelter in the next couple of weeks.
