The City of Launceston compulsorily acquired Boral’s plant as part of the $58M flood levee reconstruction project in 2008, that paved the way for the reconstruction of Boral’s facility.

Boral is committed to sustainable practices throughout their operation and how they function as an organisation. It was essential for us to provide them with product options that reflected their vision and aligned with their values.

We’ve used products that are of high quality, beautifully crafted and most importantly, environment-friendly. Actiu is one of the most sustainable industrial companies in Europe. Their building generates its own clean energy that results in a green production from the design through to manufacturing. Using the ACTIU range, the outcome is this simplistic, modern and highly sustainable space, which significantly reflects who they are as a business.

“Having a new site for all employees has a big impact on morale and it’s going to impact a certain quality of the work they will be doing...”
